Birth of the Brand
In a marketplace of figurative jewelry, Yves yearned for clean and architectural designs. He created a set of linked rings of different thicknesses. They can be worn spread across three fingers, or stacked on one, as an unique ring.
Spinelli Kilcollin launched his first collection of interconnected Galaxy Rings at Maxfield, and began incorporating diamonds on some of his pieces. In 2012, the brand created a custom linked ring for Ikram Goldman with 5 carats of diamonds, which immediately caught the attention of the national press and luxury retailers, including Barneys.
