Over the years, the house of Moussaieff has amassed a first-rate gem collection, including the 5.11-karat shield-shaped Moussaieff Red, one of the planet’s largest fancy red diamonds, which was discovered by a Brazilian farmer and weighed 13.90 karats in the rough, and the Moussaieff Blue, a flawless blue diamond that broke the price per carat world record upon its acquisition in 2007. Alisa Moussaieff has never strayed from her single-minded passion for diamonds, not only for their intrinsic value but also their heritage, emotional and spiritual significance and life-enhancing qualities. “If you don’t understand gemstones, you can’t make jewelry,” she insists. “You need to have basic knowledge of gems and also the sources of gems.” It is this time-honored understanding of magnificent stones that allows Moussaieff to keep crafting jewels where the most incredible gems take center stage.

You see, Ceylon sapphire cutters face a real dilemma: because the color often radiates from one portion of the stone; other portions of the stone may be pale or even colorless. The art of the master Ceylon sapphire cutter is to angle the piece of rough in such a way as to bring this shot of color closest to the table of the stone. The result: Symmetry is sacrificed for depth of color.
René Jules Lalique (6 April 1860, Ay, Marne – 1 May 1945, Paris) French glass designer and also 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 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 notion of solid materials like metal to co-exist with flight.

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.

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 mother & child rendition in the above photo was made by Oscar Roty, and capped with the French word for Motherhood - ‘Maternite”.
The reverse of the artwork features a wreath of roses, the historic symbol of Feeling, Emotion - Mother.
