Ayako Kanari is a Tokyo-born independent designer, now based in London. The ‘Magnitude Plait’ collection recreates the romanticism and sentiment carried by Victorian Era hair jewellery. The Victorians lived through a time of great disorder,the Industrial Revolution and extreme poverty. Death subsequently grew to be a theme of great importance in their culture. While some hair jewellery was created as mourning pieces or “memento mori” (a Latin phrase translated as “remember your mortality”), it was also given as a token of love and friendship from lovers, family members and friends. All items from the Magnitude Plait collection are decorated with a fine plaited hair effect texture.

Ayako has created a Special Collection for Nocturnal Aesthetics 

featuring black spinels and diamonds.

Nocturnal Aesthetics' favourite: The Magnitude Plait Ring
