Jeremy Hoye is best-known for his cool jewellery, which is popular amongst both men and women. His unusual rings are made in silver, yellow gold, white gold, rose gold and platinum.
Matt finish rings have a softer and more different look in comparison to high-polished rings. Jeremy’s Finn collection, which is inspired by American concept cars and designed to resemble lavish fenders, features satin finish rings which have a much more mechanical feel. Most of Jeremy’s collections are inspired by natural forms such as rock formations and geodes, vines and flowers, and even anatomy; therefore, House of Hoye offers a variety of organic rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and charms. In the past, Jeremy has made a vast number of one-off rings – special, bespoke pieces commissioned by customers.
If this is something that would interest you and you have a budget, Jeremy can work to within that amount to make something that is not only affordable, but also high-quality. Most of today’s fashions are short-lived; however, some of Jeremy’s earliest collections are just as popular as they were over 20 years ago, which goes to show how timeless his designs are. This is great for lifelong items like wedding rings as they are guaranteed to stand the test of time.
Jeremy refers to his work as ‘jewellery for the non-conformists’ designing cool rings and other pieces for people who want something handmade and different. His newly launched Hoye Division website showcases what he calls ‘rock and roll rings’ and cool wedding rings designed especially for men. When you wear a piece of jewellery every day it almost becomes a part of you, so it is important that you
choose something that reflects your personality. A simple band doesn’t have to be plain; hammered rings are great for the no-fuss customers or those who need consider practicality for work. Available with a straight or curved edge, these rings sit comfortably and flat to the finger, with a textured surface. Jeremy designs a lot of jewellery to be unisex; most collections have variations such as a narrow, medium or wide rings to suit the shape of the finger and lighter or heavier chains for bracelets and necklaces.
Jeremy is not afraid to add a bit of colour to his designs by setting silver pieces with high-quality semi-precious stones like amethyst, citrine, peridot, topaz, garnet and tourmaline. Coloured stones in more precious rings have also grown in popularity; recently he made an engagement ring using a beautiful orange sapphire and has in the past worked with tanzanite and coloured diamonds.
