“Q before the bloom”
As the cherry tree wakes from its winter sleep, the bud emerges before the blossom. These delicate, tender forms are ripe with beauty, and hold the promise of new beginnings.
We pay tribute to this fleeting moment with the Q series. Slender ribs form a complete sphere that’s both playful and elegant. Wear this timeless shape to celebrate possibilities – in every season.
The Q series cufflink was the piece that started us on the path to creating our jewelry studio. It was originally made as a birthday gift from Hiroko to Neil.
