    Symmetry Breaking - a defect or an inclusion?

    During the first hundredth of a second after the big bang physicists have determined the universe passed through 4 phases associated with the creation of each of the fundamental forces - electromagnetism, the weak and strong nuclear forces and gravity. Like water when it condenses from steam to liquid to ice, the universe like a gemstone became more asymmetric as it cooled. While passing through each of these phase changes, imperfections could have arisen, just as ice crystals show flaws in the packing of water molecules within them. Theorists propose that these ‘topological defects’ in space-time might include linear ‘cosmic strings’, one-sided magnetic ‘monopoles’ and twisted forms called ‘textures’.

    When we look through a microscope at a gemstone, we begin to see the crystal structure gives rise to defects within the stone, largely determined by the mass of the particles, background force field, etc in space-time. We call them ‘inclusions’ in gemological terms - but are they really "inclusions" or defects in perfect symmetry?

    The Feel of Oscar Roty

  • Oscar Roty Motherhood Medallion
  • Jewelry speaks to the senses, but when the sparkle goes beyond the sense of sight and draws from us deep emotion it catapults the jewelry into a work of art.

    We see into the character and the temperament of the artist and can sense his tenderness and genius, and we behold a masterpiece!

    Louis Oscar Roty, was a master medalist. Born in Paris in 1846, he was a master of both painting and sculpture and is considered today the world reigning master of medalists.

    His medals are to be found in nearly all major European museums, and there is a museum of his works, called the Museum of Oscar Roty, located in Jargeau, France; classified as works of art.

    The gold medal above made by Oscar Roty, featuring mother and child is capped with the French word for Motherhood - ‘Maternite”. The reverse of the medal features a wreath of roses, the historic symbol of love.

    Jewelry learns to fly in the art nouveau

    René Jules Lalique (6 April 1860, Ay, Marne – 1 May 1945, Paris) was a French glass designer and one of the most original & influential jewelers of all time. Breaking the unspoken rule that jewelry was a trophy to showcase luxury he introduced a contradiction to lifeless hard surfaces through the medium of light; Lalique created movement through exceptional craftsmanship and choice of materials and in the process went where no jeweler had gone before. Through the visible region we see as light, Lalique enabled for the first time, the contradictory concept of a solid material like metal to co-exisit with flight.

    One step closer to a thousand years with gemstones & jewelry

    One of the purposes of jewelry that's been in circulation for hundreds or thousands of years is to show that actual immortality by extending the memory beyond the normal reach of a lifespan can be achieved - that memory extension methods in the physical form of jewelry hardware saturated with the energetic fields of past lifetimes, recall life-affirming mental imagery of past events is evidence that we do have capabilities that are possible: that we do have an opportunity to recall memory perhaps, not just one hundred or a thousand years, but why not even billions and trillions of years; an unlimited duration. Our hope is that an approach more aligned to crystalline structure rather than cryonics, will push us one step closer to life extension, to fully embrace everything that we were so that we can move beyond it. Our life could be eternal and have meaning forever

    No two natural mined gemstones are identical

    Nothing in nature is the same as anything else. There is always a difference, however slight it may be. After all, why do the same thing twice? This is one of the factors that make gems so fascinating. Each is an individual with characteristics which make it at least slightly different from any other gem.
