The eclectic jewels of the sisters Sonia and Katia Gaydamak. Which are also inspired by Napoleon ♦
Can you have an inspiration for a collection even to Napoleon Bonaparte? You can, if there is called Sonia and Katia Gaydamak. Two sisters of Russian origin, daughters of the rich Israeli businesman Arcadi Gaydamak, which in 2009 created the eponymous jewelry brand, after graduating at Gemological Institute of America in New York. Between London and Paris, between their fantasies and suggestions of objects found by chance, they have developed their own, high, jewelery philosophy.
As in the case of the collection 1802, which was inspired by a medal, the Legion of Honor. It is the highest honor awarded in France and introduced by Napoleon. Inspired to this prestigious award were born ring, earrings and bracelet, with gold light rays which start from a tiger’s eye at the center. Or collection Kashmir, which is inspired by the classic design used in Indian culture. Often it found in oriental ornaments, but in this case was reviewed by the two designers, which have filled the corners with paved diamonds, white gold and chalcedony. Even Karess collection has something oriental in its convolutions of white gold and diamonds, which enclose a black oval onyx stone. Rudy Serra
