Yves Spinelli was born in Honolulu, the son of Italian hairstylists. His
introduction to the fashion world came through his father Antoine Spinelli, who
spent time between Hawaii and New York City working alongside renowned
hairstylists Paul Mitchell, Garren Defazio and Roger hompson in the 70's and
80's. Spinelli combines a contemporary minimalist aesthetic with a love for
materials and cratsmanship that he inherited from his Italian father, a
NUMBERTK-generation trained blacksmith.
Yves studied jewelry
in high school at Punahou. Ater moving to Los Angeles in 1997, he began his
career in luxury fashion. A longtime manager for the iconic West Hollywood
boutique Maxield and its sister store Maxield Bleu, Yves felt there was
something missing in the men's market. He dreamed of jewelry pieces that were
tough but also modern and sculptural.
The rings vary from a
gauge size of 2mm to 5mm. When working with precious stones, we use several
kinds of settings: Three row âmicro-pavéâ, Single row âu-pavéâ, Burnish-Set
