Lindsey Scoggins’ New Jewelry Embodies Goth Romanticism

The jewelry designer has lots of newness in time for the holidays.

Rings from Lindsey Scoggins’ new “Oath” collection
New York—Lindsey Scoggins’ latest collection is all about romance. 
 
“Oath” emerged from a custom client piece, expanding into a full-fledged collection the New York City-based designer launched this summer. 
 
It celebrates commitment, love, and loyalty, but with a moody romanticism that feels atypical from the average token of fidelity on the market.
 
Scoggins calls the collection: “strong and clean, but also very wearable. Once we decided to explore it as a collection, it evolved very quickly.”

There are hefty, grooved bangles with two loops connected by a chain. It’s an allusion to handcuffs that, interpreted through Scoggins’ elegant point-of-view, becomes a covetable piece representing the connection between two people.   
 
It’s available in a double version, too, with two single bangles connected by the chain. A single version starts at $9,950 for an 18-karat rose or yellow gold version, though there are lots of iteration possibilities featuring diamond detailing, the most elaborate of which is set all the way with emerald-cut diamonds retailing for between $46,200 and $48,050 depending on wrist size.

There are also ring versions with a single loop, or a double ring connected by a chain, just like the double bangle. 
 
The pieces feel genderless, with hints of both masculinity and femininity.
 
Scoggins described her clients to National Jeweler as, “women and men who appreciate fine details and excellent workmanship, and want something unique but incredibly wearable.”
 
The collection’s “Gypsy Link Rings,” which show lots of the meticulous detailing that is essential Lindsey Scoggins, can also be envisioned as a men’s pinky ring or woman’s cocktail ring.

Sharp, talon-esque prongs encase sizable colored gemstones like tourmaline and spinel, while link detailing defines the grooved shank. Pieces are one-of-a-kind due to the nature of the gems selected for each version. 
 
“Lately, we are using a lot of tourmalines, spinel and sapphires—a moodier spectrum versus the bright rainbow colors popular now,” the designer said.  

A 5.1-carat spessartite garnet in 18-karat yellow gold ($9,500)

“Padlock” pendants transform the style into individual, bezel-set charms featuring various cuts of diamonds and colored gemstones. There’s an elaborate pave diamond-set locket version, as well as smaller stud earrings with the collection’s signature notched bezel.

Charms and layered necklace looks have been extra popular in recent years, and another new Lindsey Scoggins assortment answers that demand. 
 
“Fable” recalls the figures in dark fairy tales, like a heart encircled by a flame, a phoenix, and a fox. 
 
The latter is a personal favorite of Scoggins’, in part because of the process to create it.

The fox pendant in 18-karat rose gold and diamonds from the new “Fable” collection is a personal favorite of the designer. The small size sells for $2,995 and the large for $3,995 (chain sold separately).

“The fox came to life using bygone techniques including hand carving multiple waxes to get her shaping just right, and you just want to hold her in your hand all day because of the gold weight,” Scoggins said. “She’s a great talisman.”
 
Pendants are available in two sizes, with the smaller starting at $2,395 and the larger starting at $3,995. 
 
While “Oath” has a more unisex feel, the “Fable” collection was designed with a more feminine energy in mind. 
 
Scoggins was inspired to create it at the start of the pandemic. 
 
“Seeing how women were forced to immediately reroute their lives was a key inspiration,” she said. “’Fable’ tells the story of female intuition, passion, transformation and purpose.”

Retailers are responding, with new pieces recently landing on Moda Operandi and Beverly Hills tastemaker Just One Eye. 
 
After launching her brand five years ago, Scoggins’ new collections show an earnest step into the wholesale aspect of her brand, complimenting her bespoke and bridal business. 
 
The Texas native’s jewelry experience goes much further back. She got her start in Dallas at Zales, where she became the first director of sourcing, then moved to New York City designing for a private label supplier.

Launching her own line in 2016 was a long time coming for the designer. Today, she has an elegant by-appointment atelier in midtown Manhattan. Crafting her pieces in New York City is an important part of Scoggins’ brand ethos.
 
“Our jewelry is a celebration of the resilience of New York and enduring artistry that comes from our beloved jewelry district,” she said.
 
“We hope to be a part of the revitalization efforts to bring new talent to local manufacturing.”
