Spinelli Kilcollin

Spinelli Kilcollin is a jewellery collection created by Yves Spinelli and his artist partner Dwyer Kilcollin, which initially stemmed from Yves’ inspiration to create a line of “clean and architectural” jewellery. The duo launched the collection in 2010 with their Galaxy Rings, which have become a signature of the house

Background story

About the designer

Describing the brand’s aesthetic as “contemporary and minimalist,” both Yves and Dwyer draw on their creative backgrounds in their designs. Dwyer studied at the Washington University in St. Louis and the Roski School of Art and Design, University of Southern California, and as an artist creates often organic-looking sculptures that fuse the digital and the hand-made. Spinelli, meanwhile, was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to hairdresser parents, and began his career working at the famed Los Angeles boutique Max Field, where he first had the idea to start his own jewellery collection

How we curate our

contemporary designers


Every designer we showcase at Auverture has a signature, defined by the recognisable style and knowledge that sets them apart from the rest


We believe jewellery tells a story, not just about your style but about who you are. That’s why our curators build collections that speak to the past, present and future of influential design


Creating jewellery is an artform and we’re committed to celebrating that. Each piece we curate is technically exceptional, crafted with expertise, skill and creativity


As a platform looking to the future, it’s important that all of our designers align with our eco-conscious mission. As a result, the pieces we curate are always purposeful and always ethical


Why we curated this designer

The Galaxy design is formed of interlinking rings, which are joined by connecting elements and appear “stacked” on the wearer’s finger. Elegant and modern, the rings cemented the duo’s place on the fine jewellery scene, and today are rendered in materials from sterling silver to 18 karat yellow gold, with some pieces in the collection threaded with smaller annulets, studded with colorful, precious stones. Alongside the duo’s original collection of Galaxy Rings, the collection boasts bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, many of which riff on circular forms. Standout pieces include the Alexa earrings, designed as a series of interlinking rings that drop from the ears, with one design in 18 karat yellow gold and white pavé diamonds. And the Ursula bracelet echoes the interlinked design of the Galaxy Rings, fashioned in finely crafted silver to be worn on the wrist.
