Wearable Art

Jewelry to me is the true definition of wearable art. There is so much to appreciate within a single article of jewelry. The noble metals and gems that are given to us through Mother nature and the way that mere man has molded those gifts into an item to adorn ourselves with, equals a true ingenuitive art form. But being ascetically pleasing or beautiful is in the eye of the beholder, even in the jewelry realm. I want to showcase a few items this week that speak to my artistic soul. Along the way maybe you could explore our store and find an art piece that speaks to you…

This emerald and diamond necklace has a feminine, dainty elegance to it that seems to transcend any modern trend or style. Certain pieces could be showcased in any generation and be found beautiful and this necklace is all that to me! Emeralds are a precious gemstone that have been in demand since Biblical times and diamonds are one of the most sought after minerals known to man. The repeating pattern of the shapes and the delicate size gives this piece a balance that resonates with my jewelry soul.

This natural ruby and diamond statement ring has a starburst effect that radiates light and drama. Rubies like this one have been cut by a master stonecutter with a step cut that gives it a refractive index that bends the light from inside the gem’s depths right into your eyes. The purple-ish red color makes for a pure deep red saturation that actually complements most skin tones and wardrobe color choices. To show off the magnificent ruby, the diamonds are set in a halo around the stone with rounds and tapered baguettes shapes.

Watermelon tourmaline is one of my favorite gemstone miracles. To have two vibrant colors in one gem is nothing short of miraculous in my book. The subtle transition of color, the skill in which it took to cut a gemstone to master this phenomenon, the parallels of an organic gemstone to a delicious fruit found in our farmer’s fields ~ all together just makes me smile. And again, diamonds are used as an instrument to accentuate the beauty of the main centerpiece stone.

This piece has an interesting artistic appeal to me because of the textures and form. The individual links have a rope like finish that is set off with simple polished areas that in contrast give an elegant dimension that can’t help but be looked at. I suppose this is why it is referred to as a “statement bracelet”. Whether it was handmade or crafted by a machine, the fact that we can take small flecks, chunks or powder of gold found naturally and form it into this creation is ART!

This ring embodies the true beauty of minimal jewelry. I think of minimal jewelry as still “sparkly” and pretty but there is a simplistic, easy-on-the-eyes type of beauty that it gives off. The clean lines of the emerald cut and baguette cut diamonds leave a complete feeling in my artist eye. Nothing is out of place or too funky, it is the equivalent of looking at Crystal Lake in Michigan. It just has a tranquil feeling that everything is right in the world.

Now I could not complete a blog about artistic jewelry without an abstract, handmade, unique piece such as this beauty. This piece is what most people would call “jewelry art”. It has unique gemstones that by themselves have an artistic element to them. Rutilated quartz and opal have internal colors and strong amplifiers that make them special. Along with those elements this piece also has freeform shapes even including a trillion cut diamond that is considered a “fancy” cut in the diamond world. Even this piece speaks to my creative side.
