The Gravitation of Love collection has finished the Third World Jewelry Collection (the First was Easter eggs by Faberge, the second – Magic Clocks by Cartier)! It consists of “de luxe” jewelry, precious sculptures and classical golden jewelry with enamels. It is modern hand-made works of art, made according to old school principles. They have no copies or analogues”. Several NY papers dedicated their first lines to this special event.  

Unique pieces of art had been demonstrated for more than 3 weeks in one of the most prestigious exhibition centers of New York - National Arts Club. The jewelry exhibition was a part of “Our Heritage” Festival organized by Russian American Foundation. The main object of the exhibition has become a sculpture “Gravitation of Love”, jewelry collection “My Dear Dior” (dedicated to Christian Dior works and life) and enamel collection “Your Eden”, which was at high demand in America.

American visitors not only appreciate Ukrainian jewelry a lot, they also admit that all pieces look fashionable; their design is refined and romantic. Seeing such great success organizers decided to prolong the exhibition in spite of the fact that it had never happened before.
