Doris Hangartner, jewelry and chocolate






The five senses, but above all the palate, which celebrates the combination of chocolate and jewels. It is the original and creative idea of ​​Doris Hangartner ♦ ︎

There are two things that make a woman happy: jewels and chocolate. Instead, there is only one woman who has decided to combine the two elements: Doris Hangartner. She has a very varied curriculum behind her: after graduating in Gemology at the Gemological Institute of America in Santa Monica (California), she worked for jewelry companies, in particular as a gemologist, but also dealt with antiques and vintage jewelry.

How came the idea of ​​combining chocolate and jewelry is not known. But the marriage is part of a broader philosophy of the brand, which is based in Zurich, Switzerland (not by chance the homeland of chocolate). In fact, Doris Hangartner’s goal is to identify a person’s personality to find affinity with a gem. In short, a jewelry that involves the five senses. But, perhaps to prevent anyone from eating a peridot or sniffing a garnet, he decided to make the idea evolve. For example, combining the jewels with essences and scented candles, to satisfy the olfactory taste buds. Not forgetting hearing, with Gem Dance, Let’s Tango, a ballet inspired by the red spinel and tango music, made with internationally renowned dancers and choreographers such as Oleksandr and Sergiy Kirichenko and the Stradivari Quartett.

Finally, the flavors. Gem chocolates are handmade from a traditional Maison in Zurich (they are excellent, we can guarantee). Each chocolate is a gem: the peridot (soft taste of matcha combined with notes of jasmine and cedar surround the toasted almond in this praline), the imperial topaz (chocolate, honey, incense, orange and elderberry flowers), paraiba tourmaline (vodka , wormwood, peppermint and lime), red spinel (nougat, spicy pepper and szechuan pepper, star anise, sesame and fleur de sel). Ah, yes, there are also jewels: after this premise, it is easy to guess that the stones have a prominent role. They are lively stones, strong, with personality. Used in jewelry thanks to the good and nice creative director of the Maison, Karen McGlashan.
