ba(sic) emeralds | Paola van der Hulst Jewelry
ba(sic) emeralds | Paola van der Hulst Jewelry. When it comes to jewellery I like it simple, elegant, artistic… and at times, with a quirk factor thrown in.
And while my hat comes off to certain great arm parties, I have always tended towards the dinner for two variety. Although I wouldn’t go as far as saying that three is a crowd.
So here I give you ba(sic), the permanent collection of Paola van der Hulst Jewelry (of which you will see much more throughout this week). It is composed of simple and clean pieces, centered around black diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, rubies, and your quirky silver pieces thrown in (all with the option of gold plating, and some to be available in 18k gold soon enough).
With precious stones I have found that certain beautiful and rare cuts come in a limited quantity (as do most great things in life), so limited edition pieces will be added to ba(sic) periodically (most of which will be available exclusively at paolavanderhulst.com).*
I want to talk to you more about the process of elaboration of my designs, but that should take a whole post on its own. But to get you started, take the last piece as an e.g. (the large silver pendant drop necklace). Taking an artistic and sculptural approach to jewellery making, this piece was first carved out in (special jeweller’s) wax by myself and due to the ‘lost wax’ approach (more on this later on)- I am able to replicate it to the t over and over (and over) again. It really is a fascinating process, I tell ya.
So I leave you here with some of the ba(sic) emerald pieces. The fly sterling silver pendant, with a 0.05-ct black diamond and a 0.21-ct marquis emerald (a real conversation starter). The sterling silver drop pendant necklace with a real beautiful (and not to mention entertaining) magnetic clasp. On my digits, two thin bands with emeralds and black diamonds. And last (but definitely not least), an emerald and hand-made sterling silver chain (went old school craft on these) bracelet.
