New jewellery collection
July 1st

After months of conception, we now present our new jewellery collection:
Iris (greek: rainbow) stands for a sensitive and purist series of jewellery in all colors of the rainbow or the iris of the eyes of the wearer.

The round gems are raised and flow in soft forms as precious metal over the body. Unworn, the rings are scuptural and sublime as a monument. Designed in collaboration with a true master of his craft, the noble series is executed and extended in cooperation with a highly talented young goldsmith. Discover Iris as part of the collection on display or design your own individual piece of jewellery with us. Choose from countless gems, gold or silver and various processing techniques.
