After finally launching his collaborative “Office Supplies” jewelry with Jacob & Co., Virgil Abloh has unveiled his latest range of bracelets and earrings. The made-to-order collection elevates ordinary paperclips into luxury staples crafted from 18k white, yellow or rose gold, drawing from the DIY grade-school concept of piecing paper clips together to make accessories.

Abloh explained on Instagram that the collection “is a concept for fine jewelry I developed and have been sitting on for a while now…It’s all cryptic & metaphoric but that’s as much of the concept as the adolescent idea of making a paperclip bracelet in grade school meets the blinding aspirational quality of a Rocafella chain. It’s my whole art practice in one object.” Each bracelet or pair of earrings is comprised of delicately linked paperclip-shaped pieces studded with sparkling white diamonds.

“Creating connection between one another is one of the most powerful things in the world,” Jacob & Co. explained. “Just like the paper clip earrings, one link connected to another, creating a circle of power that brings you endless strength, confidence and energy.”

Interested parties may request an order form for the “Office Supplies” collection by emailing officesupplies@canary—yellow.com. Jacob & Co. founder Jacob Arabo and Abloh will personally review and approve every order submitted.

For more accessories, Saint Laurent has released silver-tone and antiqued bronze-tone brass plaquette rings.
