Scintilla Rectangle Cut Necklace is a new product from the collection of faceted stones.
Gemstone faceting is a constant discovery and challenge for me. To find out the fine properties of every single mineral by doing intrigues me. Each one must be treated individually. The smooth polished facets reflect and break the incoming light. This light, often split in many colours, ignites the “inner fire” of the stone. Being able to unveil this fire is the reward for my love of minerals. In the blaze flares up the memory of my dream.
As a jewellery artist, I use cut and polished stones and gems, but also the raw ones. They are inspiration, enthusiasm and passion for me. Even as a child, I brought bags full of stones home, collected every stone in which I saw beauty.
Scintilla Rectangle Cut Necklace is one of the first of its kind, made after a long time of preparation and studies of gems and the art of faceting.
Faceting a big gem like this one (14 ct) takes with the faceting machine several hours to make. I cut every facet separately and very precisely. I use diamond grinding lap and different kind of polishing types, like diamond paste, ceroxid or aloxid powder.
