    Heaven on Earth Australian Akoya Pearls

    Australian Akoya Pearls are grown in limited numbers on the mid-north coast of New South Wales in Australia – unlike Japanese Akoya Pearls, they do not undergo a 'treatment' known as maeshori - which means 'before treatment’ in Japanese. The pre-treatment process involves soaking pearls in hydrogen peroxide and/or methyl alcohol, mineral salts, and ammonia, or alternately heating and chemically treating the pearls in order to reduce the space between the nacre platelets.

    No such treatment for Australian High-Quality Akoya Pearls. Australian Akoya Pearls depend more on Good Water Quality; environmentally responsible management is critical to High-Quality Australian Akoya Pearls.

    Australian Akoya Pearls display a high-quality luster due to thicker nacre, which is achieved through longer growth times for the oysters. The Akoya pearl oyster (Pinctada imbricata) is native to NSW waters. Australian Akoya pearl farmers of NSW, recognize their responsibility to farm pearls in a sustainable and responsible manner.

    Best practice long-line farming method eliminates the need for treated timber infrastructure, prevents entanglement and minimizes water obstacles for dolphins, whales, and turtles.

    Australian Akoya Pearls in NSW are seeded using an organic bead made from mussel shells. Plus, Australian Akoya pearls are processed on-site using a completely natural walnut and saline mixture to remove protein residue.

    Tribute To a Mother by Master Medalist Oscar Roty

    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 and Child Medal in the above image is a most poignant tribute to a Mother. Crafted by Master medalist - Oscar Roty, and capped with the French word for Motherhood - ‘Maternite”.
    The reverse of the artwork features a wreath of roses, the universal symbol of love.

    The Three Graces first Commissioned by Jospehine Bonaparte


    The Three Graces, sculpture, Antonio Canova, 1814 – 17, Italy. Museum no. A.4-1994. © Victoria and Albert Museum, London

    The first version of this piece was commissioned by one of the Georgian era's most famous women, Joséphine de Beauharnais, who was by then the divorced first wife of Napoleon. In May 1814, before Antonio Canova had completed the sculpture, De Beauharnais died. John Russell, the 6th Duke of Bedford, visited Canova's studio in Rome in December that year and, impressed by the artistry of The Three Graces, told Canova he wanted to acquire the finished marble. De Beauharnais' son, Prince Eugène de Beauharnais, also wanted to buy the group his mother had commissioned, so Canova offered to make the Duke of Bedford a 'replica with alterations'.
    Soon after he accepted this offer, in January 1815, the Duke wrote to the artist saying,
    "I frankly declare that I have seen nothing in ancient or modern sculpture that has given me more pleasure … I leave the variations in the group … entirely to your judgment, but I hope that the true grace that so particularly distinguishes this work will be completely preserved."
