Unusual minerals often come from the remotest corners of the Earth. The search for appropriate gems often last for weeks and require a lot of determination and patience. However, the unique effect and power, enchantment of exotic gemstones fully compensate for the effort.
Gold is a symbol of perfection, something everlasting. However, combined with high quality precious gemstones, gold jewellery becomes something metaphysical, which words just can’t describe.
A real jeweler acknowledges not only new technologies but also tradition and traditional methods. This allows to experiment with materials and assemble shapes and colors already in the course of realisation of the project at the bench. The idea for the amethyst combined with African chrysoprase came about after a series of drawings. It was only in the studio, on the table with stones that this remarkable combination, complemented by yellow gold turned into a beautiful composition.
Today, when buying gold and diamond jewlery we require extra garantees . Each of my works are hallmarked by the state, certifying the authenticity of the material from which they were made and are granted by the District Assay Office.
Stones, such as diamonds have their own certificates, which describe the exact specifications of the jewel. In addition, jewlery authorised by me are stamped with my craftsman logo punch at the culmination of each work.
Works, belonging to the so called “fine arts” such as paniting or sculpture, normally are placed in a specific area, such as on a wall or on a pedestal in your favourite room. Most stay in such a place all year. For me, the creation of jewlery is like bringing to life miniature works of art which you can take anywhere with you and enjoy in each and every place and situation.
Ametrine, a mineral with zones of purple and yellow or orange is the natural combination of amethyst and citrine. The stones in this piece were specially shipped from Bolivia. The accompanying pink sapphires complement the composition and give the necklace lightness. The complete work is handmade in 18K yellow gold.
Some jewels are designed for specific clients. Others – come straight from imagination. Not all are brought to life or see the light of day. An example is this ring with natural 4 ct sapphire and diamonds. It could have been made of yellow or white gold 18k.
Gold is the best attribute to femininity and assists in the realisation of a dazzling creation. Although as part of an outfit, it is often very subtle, and in contrast to clothing and other adornments it last longer.
At last, I found an original Leveridge! It is one of the most convenient instruments for determining the dimensions of gemstones (including those already set in jewelry). I love a customised tools with a soul, and not the primitive electrics. What is the difference? It is that between a chronometer and a quartz watch.
When designing jewelry on paper always leave myself some amount of freedom as to final outcome in the metal. Gold allows boundless possibilities in creation. Sometimes it occurs that a small change in the proportion allows you to create something extremely delicate and beautiful.
