Simply because Dunhill is behind the designs of some of the most prized lighters in the world, you can place complete trust in its jewellery design know-how too. And while the accessory association with the British label appears to extend only to tie bars and cufflinks (it has been making jewellery on the down-low for close to a century), it would be wise to put some respect on the name. However, designer Mark Weston is looking to reawaken the segment with the launch of Transmission. As the name suggests, the design blueprint stems from an automobile’s transmission. But don’t let the technicalities of the inspo dissuade you if cars aren’t in the list of interests. Dunhill has placed plenty of thought into the process to make discretion look fancy, including finding the right manufacturer in France to realise the collection by hand. The series of white or yellow gold rings, necklaces, and bracelets features distinct thread markings that are integral to the visuals of a transmission – diagonal grooves that are somewhat identical to those of a screw thread. And don’t think Dunhill just wants men to be flexing these; ladies can snag a ring or bracelet for the stack too.
