The Jewel Within

India Today - - SPICE -

The cre­ations of de Griso­gono evoke an Eden that springs from Fawaz Gru­osi’s mind. Gru­osi’s in­no­va­tive streak comes through in his unique com­bi­na­tion of gem­stones and ex­trav­a­gant use of colours. Gru­osi works with match­ing tones, such as black di­a­monds against black­ened gold, but he also breaks tra­di­tional colour codes by mix­ing greens, reds and blues, yel­lows and greens, browns and aqua­marines. The beauty of each de Griso­gono cre­ation is the re­sult of count­less hours of high-pre­ci­sion crafts­man­ship car­ried out by the brand’s gold­smiths, gem­set­ters and crafts­men, who take the time they need to trans­late the designs into the most sub­lime cre­ations. Look at the pink gold neck­lace with 1088 black In­dian di­a­monds and 625 multi-coloured Thai sap­phire brio­lettes. A grid is cre­ated by gold threads be­tween the main struc­ture set with the black di­a­monds to which the brio­lettes are then in­di­vid­u­ally at­tached. The ear­rings shaped like two blos­som­ing peony petals of 53 brio­lette-cut amethysts, 42 pink quartz and 142 pink sap­phires del­i­cately in­ter­twine on white gold set with 338 white di­a­monds. All part of de Grisogno’s quest for ex­cel­lence, and of course, there are no lim­its on the jour­ney to the final mas­ter­piece which is al­ways an in­no­va­tion.
