Dots How John Hardy Defines Glamour

Posted by Keller & George at 10:00:15 AM in John Hardy (29)

John Hardy, Bali-based designer jewelry manufacturer, is known for its rich jewelry collections that are inspired by Asian culture and crafted using traditional handmade techniques. One of its anchor collections is the Dot, whose motif is derived from the ancient local granulating method. The technique decorates the surface of an ornament with small spheres of precious metal to create or enhance the texture and design. Head designer Guy Bedarida decided to give the centuries-old technique a modern spin by flattening the metal balls into crisp and clean dots. The architectural rhythm and highly polished surface of the resulting design conveyed a sense of high-powered contemporary glamour to every piece. A rare rendition of this popular design is the Dot Collection Knuckle Ring with Diamond Pave, which features a dotted sterling silver and 18 k yellow gold cobra in a striking pose, with a crown of pave diamonds painstakingly hand-applied on its head. The piece is indeed, high-powered, contemporary and glamorous.

Posted by Keller & George at 10:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (26)

The jewelry-making industry has a huge population of men designers, yet only too few designs for men.  Famous Italian jewelry manufacturer Marco Bicego tries to even out the odds for men in finding fashionable accessories with his Men’s collection of designer jewelry.  Like his wider array of collections for women, his selections for men are pure expression of contemporary “everyday luxury” tinged with Old-World Italian sophistication.

An Accidental Birth to a Distinctive Mark

Posted by Keller & George at 9:00:25 AM in Christopher Designs (24)

Mistakes are learning experiences. For Christopher Slowinsky, founder of designer jewelry brand Christopher Designs, one particular mistake was more than a learning experience; it was a turning point that set his works apart from the rest of the diamond industry. As a young jeweler in Europe, Slowinsky once unintentionally made an erroneous cut on his diamond stone as he attempted to perfect his invisible setting technique. He was disappointed with the mishap but was also interested with the extra bright spot on the diamond where he had made the accidental dent. Thrilled with a new idea, he studied and perfected a similar crisscrossed facet arrangement, which later gave birth to his famous crosscut pattern – a unique design that maximizes a diamond’s brilliance, now backed up by multiple U.S. patents. The rest is history, which is still in the making as Slowinsky continually innovates the face of the diamond industry.

Solitaire is the Game in Town

Posted by Keller & George at 12:00:40 PM in Hearts on Fire (27)

Yet, nothing still beats the elegance and significance of the iconic solitaire. Its glamour is in its simplicity, and its appeal rests on the sincerity symbolized by that singular central diamond stone. Hearts on Fire impeccably creates this timeless style with expertise and creativity. The diamond jewelry manufacturer starts out with selecting and double checking the most flawless diamond stones that are individually serialized to prove authenticity. Hearts on Fire then creates durable and elegant mountings for these precious stones, stylized to suit the different tastes of today’s blessed couples – twist ropes, twist cradles, petal, or simple gold or platinum bands.

Breaking Through Conventions

Posted by Keller & George at 12:00:20 PM in Christopher Designs (24)

Christopher Slowinski never believed in conventions. Just when everybody thought there could never be anything more beautiful than a brilliant cut diamond, he goes and proves them all wrong. Christopher Designs, the man’s own jewelry manufacturing company for which he himself creates the designs, takes the round diamond into a higher level with the crisscut round. The conventional 58-facet round brilliant has always been beautiful, but Christopher’s crisscut, with its 109 dazzling crisscrossed facets is just admirable beyond measure. The stone radiates unequalled brilliance with its ingenious 12 walls and 12 sides that create a dozen flawless arrows pointing towards the center. The diamond’s edges breaks the light and creates the illusion of a perfectly scalloped border, which adds one more point of interest to Christopher’s patented pattern. There will always be conventions, and there will always arise some like Christopher who break through norms and change them.

With Suna Brothers’ knack for creating unusual jewelry using rare stones, there is no telling what the brand’s next masterpiece is gonna turn out like.

One of Mother Nature’s most interesting pieces is the opal gem which captures hues and brilliant flecks like oil on canvass. Like the rough and allusive strokes of Monet’s impressionist paintings, Suna takes this natural work of art and turns it into a wearable masterpiece.

The Birthing Process of a Weil Watch

Posted by Keller & George at 8:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (23)

Every Weil Watch starts out as a fascination over an idea or a thing of beauty. This inspiration is translated into a design on paper by the company’s creative team, after the technical aspects of the design process have also put into consideration. Then bits and pieces of precious materials such as gold or platinum cases, diamonds, fine details and hand-assembled movements, appear one by one. They are slowly and very meticulously assembled together by seasoned watch makers who use both traditional and innovative Swiss methods for creating much sought-after timepieces. The watches then go through the rigorous quality control measures to ensure their utmost performance and perfect aesthetics – the standard that comes with the “Swiss Made” inscription on their case -backs. 
 
From the controlled environments of Weil’s workshops in Geneva, the watches find their way to the showrooms of selected dealers of the label all over the world – including Keller & George Jewelers in the United States – and then to the wrists of clients to become treasured personal possessions and future family heirloom.

The Woman in the Swiss Army Story

Posted by Keller & George at 8:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (0)

Behind every man’s success story is a woman who stands as a source of strength and inspiration. The Swiss Army Victorinox, with its emblematic Swiss Army knife, is the corporate brain child of Swiss cutler Karl Elsener. The business was initially set up by Karl to deliver reliable, portable and highly functional knife to Switzerland’s Army. Later on, the brand took on a more diversified offering including fragrances, luggages and timepieces. Currently, Victorinox Swiss Army is one of the popular names in many markets, but very few realize one person’s vital role in the building of this multinational company. The Victoria watch is a fine tribute to the feminine and serene personality that supported Karl in the early stages of his business venture – his mother Victoria. The name of the brand was taken from her name, and the Victoria watch design is a beautiful reflection of her remarkable personality – effortlessly simple and straightforward.

Suna Brothers Plays with Blue Fire

Posted by Keller & George at 3:35:00 AM in Suna Brothers (22)

Suna Brothers prides itself with its unrivalled platinum mountings and selections of rare precious stones. Zircon is one of Suna Brothers’ rare pieces in its collections. This dazzling blue stone is now very difficult to come by. It is also often misunderstood and confused with the cubic zirconia, which is the manmade imitation diamond. Though the two stones may both bear some semblance to the diamond for their shine, zircon is one of the precious few gems that show visible dispersion and flashing rainbow fire when examined under light. The stone’s incredible sparkle is due to its innate optical characteristic known as double refraction which creates extreme scintillation. This unique characteristic earned it its nickname, “blue fire”.

Marking the Seasons with Class

Posted by Keller & George at 3:00:00 AM in Tissot (25)

Tissot is a brand that is way ahead of the times. Its T-Touch collection makes strides in the watchmaking industry along the roads-not-yet-travelled. It has not, however, lost touch with the rich heritage of the past. The Musical Seasons of Tissot’s T-Pocket collection pays tribute to the master Antonio Vivaldi’s violin concerto of a similar name - Four Seasons. The Tissot ensemble is composed of a quartet of pocket watches that each captures the atmosphere of one season – spring, summer, autumn, and winter – through a differently colored cameo and design on the dial and its own excerpt of music. The dainty pocket watches are housed in a 59.6 mm brass case, protected by mineral glass, and come with manual mechanical movement. The Musical Seasons, whether apiece or as a set is a special gift to mark an important occasion or an impressive collectors’ item for the watch connoisseur, the musically inclined, or both.

Unchained Elegance

Posted by Keller & George at 3:00:00 AM in John Hardy (29)

Every piece of jewelry has a story to tell. At least, at John Hardy they do.  The Classic Chain is among the most popular collections by the Bali-based designer jewelry manufacturer; one with a rich history behind it. Back in the 19th Century, the country’s eight kingdoms vied for status with elegant castles, beautiful queens and exquisite jewelry. The technique for creating the elaborate design of the Classic Chain is inspired by Bali’s ancient chain weaving practice that made a name for its ancient kingdom in jewelry-making. John Hardy learned the unique craft from its first jewelry maker, the grandson of the previous king’s jewelry maker himself.  The braided bracelets are handcrafted using annealed sterling silver chains plated with rhodium for a supply draped metal sheen. The remarkably comfortable chains are decked with precious stones such as blue sapphire and amethyst; a perfect gift for the woman who reigns your heart.

Nurtured by the Ocean, Tested by Fire

Posted by Keller & George at 3:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (28)

How far would a company go to prove its commitment to excellence? Mikimoto went as far as a publicized destruction of low-quality pearls. Kokichi Mikimoto, the founder of today’s largest pearl manufacturing house, was set to show the world that his company only offered the highest quality of gems to adorn the delicate necks of women around the world. In 1932, when low quality pearls started to proliferate in the market, Mikimoto burned thousands of poor quality pearls in front of the Chamber of Commerce. His message was simple yet resounding: “I would rather destroy a pearl than sell one of low quality.” Being the person credited for producing the world’s first cultured pearls, Kokichi Mikimoto sent a wave of admiration for his high standards – a commitment which is being continued today by the next generation of Mikimoto pearl experts.
