This collection of sculptural concrete jewelry is one way to make a bold statement. Although simple and rugged at first glance, it becomes increasingly apparent that in spite of their monotone aesthetic, the designs are as eye-catching as shiny metal and vibrant gemstones. Borrowing elements from the brutalist architectural movement, the sculptural concrete jewelry is meant to stand out.

Although great for modern looks, the sculptural concrete jewelry can be worn with just about any outfit. Designed by Mareike Kanafani, the artistic elements of each design stand up above the band itself, which is also crafted out of cement. Some of the pieces are even colored with paint to add another element, a slightly prettier one.
