Selin Kent is a New York-based jewelry designer who hails from Istanbul, Turkey.
Launched in 2013, Selin Kent’s fine jewelry collection is characterized by a minimalist vocabulary of clean lines and bold, architectural forms. Incorporating 14K gold with precious stones, a refined yet playful sensibility is applied to each piece. Unique stacking options are explored, such as rings that fit into each other like puzzle pieces. Elegance and balance in design is achieved through a careful study and application of geometry and proportion. The collection consists of modern staples that are understated yet striking, and edgy yet sophisticated.
Each piece is made in New York using responsibly sourced precious metals and stones, ensuring a commitment to the highest quality craftsmanship as well as minimal environmental impact.
Selin's design sensibility is influenced by a wide range of aesthetic sources including modern architecture, street fashion, geometric compositions, and 20th century art movements such as Bauhaus. On a more visceral level, she draws influence from powerful and talented women who have left their mark. Designed by a woman for women, the collection is an homage to the perseverance and strength of the female spirit.
Having lived in cities as culturally and aesthetically varied as Vienna, Paris, Istanbul and New York, her international upbringing and travels are a constant source of creativity and design exploration for her collections.
