The most famous jewelry designers

Jewelry and jewelry designers they have always been close to glamor and elegance.

The jewels are a symbol of wealth, of power, which throughout the centuries have accompanied queens and kings, rulers and the world of cinema and entertainment. History has left some of them as representatives of a special caste, who have dedicated their artistic skill and ingenuity to creating works of art with precious stones and noble metals, such as gold, silver and platinum.

These delicate and extraordinary pieces in the form of pendants, rings, necklaces, bracelets, tiaras and crowns are worn by queens and princesses, millionaires, actresses and singers, people who can pay exclusivity, and sometimes even extravagance.

 

Famous jewelry designers

 

Peter Carl Fabergé

He was a Russian jeweler born in Saint Petersburg in 1846. He has been considered the most famous and outstanding goldsmith in the world, and one of the quintessential jewelry designers. He made a collection of 69 Easter eggs (the famous Fabergé eggs), of which 61 are still preserved.

As a designer, he worked with precious metals and stones, and when he took over the family business, in 1870, he began to design in different styles, such as Greek, Old Russian, Art Nouveau, Baroque, Renaissance or Naturalist. .

He was appointed a goldsmith and jeweler to the Russian imperial court, as well as to other well-known European monarchies. His famous Easter eggs were made at the request of the tsars, beginning with Alexander III, in 1885, who asked him (for Easter that year) for an egg to give to his wife, Tsarina Maria. It was an egg with a platinum shell inside of which was a smaller one made of gold, and when it was opened it revealed a miniature hen with a replica of the Russian imperial crown. This became the custom, and Fabergé designed a total of 57 eggs for the tsars. The Russian revolution closed the firm in 1917.

Louis-Ulysse Chopard

The Swiss Louis-Ulysse Chopard founded a pocket watch and chronometer watch shop in Sonvilier, Switzerland, in 1860. His innovative watch designs were even used by Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, becoming true works of art.

The Chopard brand was bought in the 1960s by a German company of goldsmiths and jewelery designers, Eszeha, and in this way Chopard, continuing its watchmaking tradition, entered the world of jewelery and goldsmithing. The current presidents of the firm, the brothers Caroline and Karl-Friedrich, sons of Chopard buyers, are responsible for carrying out both the high jewelery and the women’s and men’s watch collections.
