Bande des Quatres is a boutique jewelry line. Each design is a collaboration: conceived by Montreal-native Erin Wahed and hand-crafted by world-renowned Canadian jeweler Janis Kerman. She draws inspiration from a variety of mediums including photography, painting, sculpture, architecture, graphic and industrial design.

The new collection is inspired by typography, and features linear graphics influenced by renowned typographers throughout history (Including Adrian Frutiger, Frederic W. Goudy, Paul Renner, Eric Gill, and Morris Fuller Benton), that compliment each earring, ring and necklace design in the campaign.
