Jewels for us and also for our customers do not only have monetary value. Our jewelry accompanies and symbolizes most often intense emotional bonds with people who offer them and serve as milestones at key moments in their lives.
Jewels are personal ornaments that intend to ameliorate our image. Jewels were in the course of history, symbols of prestige and status. Their manufacturing began about 40,000 years ago as one of the first forms of handmade folk art. From the beginning of man’s existence, our kind felt the need to be creative and “constructed” these ornaments, which over time became more meaningful than mere everyday utilitarian tools. Although some jewelry had at first a rather utilitarian use (such as a ring - seals) today jewelry is more of a status symbol to holders of political (e.g. royal tiaras) and/or religious positions (e.g. papal miter), financial status or relationships (e.g. rings and solitaires). This has changed dramatically over time and many tools are currently made of precious materials, resulting again in clearly symbolizing the financial and social status of their owners (e.g. silver/gold dinnerware sets).
Nature has provided us with material that man has assessed and highlighted, using them in order to give a different and special meaning to important moments.
