ETHICS & AESTHETICS

Montreal, circa 1967,  was like the end of history, the last beacon for the last modern man. 

And we were seduced by the Brutalist architecture from that period - Habitat 67, the concrete labyrinth which we know as Société de transport de Montréal (STM). 

Our jewelry anticipates the return to Brutalism, to Montreal, to 1967, to poured concrete cubes, stacked sheet metal, glass and modular structures.

THE UNUSUAL AND THE COMMONPLACE

Brought to you by the Triing Collective, this work of minimalist jewelry is inspired by the stark and sculptural honesty of classic forms and the compositions of articulated modular elements.

FORM

Built on the principle of modularity, MODULAJ is a four part system: separate ring box, enclosed hardware,  fitted metallic shank, and lab-grown semi-precious gem. The ring box is conceived to be interchangeable. The user has the option at some time in the future to have the hardware removed and ethically recycled and the ring box refinished and returned. 

MATERIALS

Modulaj is a marriage of crafted heritage and cutting-edge technology: 

  • Conflict free, aircraft grade recycled Titanium
  • Lab-grown semi-precious Sapphire and Spinel
  • Vintage Rose Cut Spinel

The ring box and shank are buffed and mirrored in places to enhance play and deflection of light on the ring.

ETHICS

Modulaj is designed to be both technical gadget and also singular piece of jewelry. It addresses the form and function debate with confidence.

MODULAJ is made with

  • Bio-compatible metals
  • Bio-neutral manufacturing
  • Bio-neutral supply chains
  • Full circle sustainability

Our hope is to deliver efficiency and beauty in one simple form.
