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.
We catch a glimpse of 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 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.

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 evidence of symmetry breaking; a simple defect of perfect crystal structure? Yvonne Eyre
