for the LEGO lover whose outgrown their days building imaginary worlds, hintlab has created a line of customisable jewellery encouraging a little nostalgic indulgence. their collection of LEGO compatible jewellery features rings and earrings in a range of materials, which can be embellished with the famous toy bricks.

hintlab wants users to have fun with their jewellery, and transform it day after day according to their mood

 

 

hintlab‘s Playful&Precious rings collection give users the chance to reinvent their jewellery day after day, customising it to their outfit. each handmade to order piece comes with its own set which can be specified by the customer. the jewellery is available in four different finishes: bronze, brass, sterling silver and gold. the pieces, which feature studs perfectly shaped to fit compatible LEGO pieces, are manufactured using 3D printing as well as traditional jewellery casting methods

thomas and allie are behind hint lab, two designers based in france with a love of creating little moments of joy. after spending several years working in Shanghai, China, the pair chose to come back to what design truly means for them: empowering and delighting users with unexpected objects and experiences.

‘we hope our rings can be a kind reminder to keep your inner-child run and roam free,’ comments hintlab. ‘because after all, the most sophisticated people we know – inside they are all children.’
