Inspired by the old Aragon world, artist Victor Velyan has a deep appreciation of both gemstones, and metallurgy.

His jewelry is sophisticated and edgy, with a rock n' roll edge that Victor himself embodies. The above cuff  showcases moonstones set in 18k gold that has been hand-etched with a diamond to create its unique texture.

Later, under his father's tutelage, Arman began to hone his own craft. Juxtaposing old-world techniques with a contemporary aesthetic, Arman uses techniques from a by-gone era in the creation and perfection of intricate details that set his work apart. The above bracelet is crafted in 22k gold with diamonds.

Using a kaleidoscope of colors, Carla brings Brazil to life with both structure, and fluidity, always ensuring quality of materials and craftsmanship.

Atelier Zobel
Atelier Zobel designer Peter Schmid approaches life with a child-like appetite for discovery and curiosity. Inspired by travel, street art, contemporary and medieval architecture, patterns, textures and interesting people that he meets all over the world, Peter's work is often a study in contrasts. He enjoys creating juxtapositions between two unusual objects, or highlighting the contrast between opposites. Often referred to as a "stone whisperer," Peter sees the individual personalities in the stones he works with, like this Cat's Eye tourmaline set in 18k and 20k gold.

Salon 517

Anthony Lent
Artist Anthony Lent has been hand-crafting fine jewelry for both men and women for almost 50 years. His skull rings are based on the anatomical illustrations by figures such as Leonardo da Vinci, well-known for his fascination with the human body, and Andreas Vesalius, regarded as the father of modern human anatomy. Like these renaissance illustrations, Anthony's skull sculptures are works of art that can fool us into thinking they're based on real, human skulls. The above pearl skull ring is crafted in 18k gold.
