From whichever angle we look at their creations, we end up at the same culminating point: the unique, identifiable style of Hemmerle. You cannot mistake them for anything else.
Is it the way Hemmerle sculpt their jewels – not just ‘design’ them? Or the way they look at the world – the diverse and complex, delicate and provocative beauty of it – and reinterpret this in their creations?
Perhaps it’s the way they don’t prioritize the ingredients of ‘classic’ high jewelry over intriguing, unconventional materials – ancient artefacts, rare woods, unusual combinations of precious and non-precious metals – to power up their imagination and creativity?
Or the overall aesthetic and philosophy of this fourth-generation family-run High Jewelry House?
One thing is for sure: gorgeous and timeless, Hemmerle’s creations continue to adorn and enrich the world of art and jewelry.
The Fall Viewing 2020 of their most recent collection is no exception.
At a time when most of us are being urged to stay at home, Hemmerle explores the air, light and spaces around us, and how we experience them.
The earrings I have picked for today play with the rich, temperamental autumn colors and textures, invoking all five senses: sight – where the metals and stones interplay in a complex architectural dance; sound – how they interact with the atmosphere around them; smell – of the dry, crispy autumn leaves and warm, spicy perfume; touch- the feel of the bold, structured shapes and surfaces; and taste – of ripe, luxuriantly sweet, late autumn fruit.
It takes all five senses – to evoke the exclusive aesthetic of the House of Hemmerle.
