Ariane Ernst is a German based jewelry designer. She trained and developed her skills as a goldsmith for 2 years at the "Vienna Gold and Silversmith Academy". Afterwards she studied "Applied Art and Design" at the FH Düsseldorf in where she graduated with a bachelor and Master degree.
After her studies she went to work for an established goldsmith in Vienna and then Stuart Moore in New York, then onto the head office of H&M in Stockholm. She now draws on all her international and diverse experience when creating her own jewelry, as well as current fashion trends and art movements such as minimalism and deconstructionism.
In her current collection, each piece is based upon a broad conventional style. She is especially aware of proportions and the joint lines of each link. In her designs Ariane collides classical forms of jewelry with the latest trends.
As a designer Ariane remains free and unattached to any one style. For her jewelry is not a status symbol, but an expression of ones own character and personality. She expresses and plays with her passion through innovative methods such as 3D printing. Also with her S.O.L (Symbol of Life) pieces, Ariane believes specific shapes appeal to people depending where they are at in their life. After 9 years of studying and apprenticeship, Ariane was thrilled to launch her eponymous collection - Ariane Ernst - in 2013.
