Inspired by the North & South pole
One of our most acclaimed and wanted collections, the prestigious ARKTIK collection which was designed Carl-David, being inspired by the Northern and Southern Poles of the Earth. The beauty in the chilling hemispheres is fantastic, Hagerbonn saw perfection in nature’s inperfection and created the esteemed ARKTIK collection which is composed of two sub-collections, the ARKTIS, the North Pole. The Arctic polar region is geographically the most northern area in the world, and consists of the many glaciers, wild animals and forms part of 8 different countries.
On the other hand, the other sub-collection is the ANTARKTIS, which is inspired by the most Southern part of the world, and the coldest place in world, also full of glaciers, holds the world’s largest amount of freshwater, and furthermore holds 95% of all the world’s ice. The deeper insight of these beautiful poles and their function for the entire world and it’s weather system led Carl-David to design the ARKTIK Collection.
These phenomenal Northern & Southern pole areas, with their unique characteristics, inspired Hagerbonnn to deisgn and create jewellery which personified the regions by using angled cuts to symbolise the cold temperatures and the unforgiving environment of these beautiful places. This unique design was then shaped into cuff, ring and earrings to epitomize the North Pole. Whereas, the Southern pole adopted a similar design however on a wider and thicker design to reflect the fact that the Southpole, ANTARKTIS is so much bigger than the ARKTIS. So the ARKTIS slightly thinner and more delicate, and the ANTARKTIS with the cuts to come across in a stronger looking way.
The embodiment of the ARKTIK earrings
