Amelia Tokyo is inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of Iki (いき, often written 粋) a traditional aesthetic ideal in Japan. The basis of iki is thought to have formed among the urbane mercantile class (Chōnin) in Edo. Iki is an expression of simplicity, sophistication, spontaneity, and originality. It is ephemeral, straightforward, measured, and unselfconscious. Iki is not overly refined, pretentious, complicated. Iki may signify a personal trait, or artificial phenomena exhibiting human will or consciousness. The phrase iki is generally used in Japanese culture to describe qualities that are aesthetically appealing and when applied to a person, what they do, or have, constitutes a high compliment. All the pieces in the Amelia Tokyo everyday jewellery feature traditional ethnic Japanese patterns with white or red or blue coloured Mother Of Pearl, creating a beautiful contrast with the 18K Yellow gold tone while subtle elements such as the T Bars and ring bands take inspiration from the renowned cultural handcrafted artifacts made from natural materials.
