Product Overview

Traditional magnificent jewels, cheap mass-produced jewellery, the passing whims of fashion: they all draw on the fading fragments of the old jewellery mystique, on enchantment long past. However, entirely new themes exist in jewellery, following the Modernist trend: meditative clarity, concentrated lines of force, wearable sculpture, innovative gemstone cutting, diamonds that seem to hover, constructions based on tension, new materials and symbols, combined with fun, refreshing playfulness, humorous allusions, poetic takes on the mundane, story-telling in metal and stone as well as romanticism with an emphasis on emotion and, most recently of all, increasingly luxurious sensuousness with the clarity retained.
