Self titled designer Benedikt von Lepel spent five years working in the Communications Sector for contemporary art between Paris and Rome before turning her interests to the world of jewellery design. Two years were spent collaborating with renowned jewellery designer Harumi Klossowska in a Parisian workshop before she took the leap and launched her first line.

The duo of delicate vermeil rings from the In The Air collection have caught the eye of many fashion lovers with their play on the theme of angel versus devil and their design inspired by this duality.Von Lepel’s style is best described as timeless with a rock edge and the current collection celebrates romantic love, attachment and friendship. Her love of linear objects has been manifested in the collection of yellow gold rings that carry sentimental messages such as; Must Have, Inseparables and Rock Me.
