The mysterious, exclusive, surprising jewels of the Maison Ninotchka. From Russia with love ♦ ︎
They are rather mysterious. The founders of the Maison Ninotchka work in Moscow for an audience of passionate collectors. Yevgeny Glagolev and Timur Ibragimov, founders and designers, work for those who do not want a simple jewel, but a small work of art. Unique pieces are able to excite and also to intrigue. Unlike other colleagues in jewelry, they avoid advertising, clamor and pomp. Yet the jewels they make are precious and surprising.
There is little information about them: both love historical jewels, so much so that they have used some pieces of the past to make them up to date in a modern way. They also love enhancing the gems found in the mines of great Russia, such as the Siberian amethysts, the Ural demantoids, the Popigai’s mine diamonds in eastern Siberia, where the largest diamond field on Earth is located: a huge large hole 100 kilometers, created by an asteroid precipitated 35 million years ago. But this is irrelevant to their refined work, which should be appreciated for the next 35 million years.
By the way: the name Ninotchka was chosen in honor of the 1939 film by director Ernst Lubitsch and starring Greta Garbo.
