The jeweler-artist Ilgiz Fazulzyanov opens a boutique in the center of Paris ♦ ︎
After the Russian Revolution of 1917, the bond between the people of the great country joining the West and the East, and Paris, became closer. Between the French capital and the elites of St. Petersburg and Moscow there was a secular liaison, which consolidated over time. Now the tuning also reaches the high jewelery. Ilgiz Fazulzyanov, a Russian artist, designer and jeweler, has opened a boutique in Paris, not far from Faubourg Saint-Honoré. On the other hand, Paris is the capital of the high jewelery and Ilgiz Fazulzyanov is the best-known maker of unique pieces, where it uses enamel beside big stones. Fazulzyanov’s jewels are also entangled with the Russian spirit, an ancient tradition that continues to live through the fancy of the jeweler.
After graduating from the Kazan University, Fazulzyanov was specialized in filigree technique, that has a tradition in Tatarstan. The style is almost Art Nouveau, with large flowers, animals, colors and soft shapes. The Kremlin has acquired six of its jewelery-masterpieces for its permanent collection. If you want to buy your jewels, however, you have to be ready for effort, at least if your finances are not particularly well-supplied. Jewelry prices start from 10,000 euros. Rudy Serra
