To customize the solitaire (the traditional engagement ring made of a central stone), designer Jessica McCormack created “Diamond Party Jackets”, in other words, diamond casings. She offers us 8 duos, each composed of a solitaire and its casing in the shape of a crescent moon, a New York building, etc.: where the first fits into or slips into the second. They can therefore be worn together or separately depending on the mood or circumstances. For those who already have their own solitaire, Jessica McCormack offers custom-made “Diamond Party Jackets”. A great idea, perfectly executed.
The elephant, which in its wild state may well have disappeared from the planet in twenty years’ time, is a great favorite with jewelers.
To support Sauvade, the French designer Pascale Monvoisin has created a pretty ring with a gold plaque on which a message can be engraved.
Developed and patented by Lebanese jeweler Tabbah for one of his customers, this ring is a reinterpretation of the traditional cigarette-holder.
Precious stones are not only used in jewelry. The Compagnie Française de l’Orient et de la Chine proposes four hardstone bowls hand-carved in India.
Pharaonic motifs, hieroglyphics, beetles… The influence of Egypt is a classic theme in the jewelry of contemporary creators and jewelers.
At GemGenève, the display cases are full of loose diamonds, rubies, sapphires, opals, tourmalines, and spinels including the most beautiful specimens.
