Imagine using the world"s finest semi-precious gems, to create the world"s most exquisite décor based on pure glamour, elegance and sophistication! It is now reality!
For the first time ever, the bar has been raised beyond the traditional crystal and metal of Tiffany"s, Waterford and Baccarat.
This is as close to using "DIAMONDS" as one will ever get! These dramatic images are featured examples of our incomparable work. The Crystal Connection is honored to create a unique design, or bring a desired "vision" to life. We can create anything, from rare Agate table lamps, to Phantom Quartz wine glasses. The possibilities are virtually endless!
The journey begins with each client choosing their desired gem-stone, it is then extracted in Brazil, which we call "the rough" and concludes with an astonishing piece personally handcrafted by artisans!
Taking more than 200 million years to form from catastrophic geologic conditions, all craftsmanship is completed by hand, which is an incredibly pains-taking process! Only the "gem-stones" that exhibit a grading of A/A+ are used. Each design displays its own individual signature of inclusions and crystal fractures that cannot be duplicated; synonymous with diamonds!
Our Design Team will either create a one-of-a kind design for you, or you have the opportunity to choose or create your own "vision" and we will personally have it crafted in your chosen gemstone!
This is the true definition of CLIENT CUSTOMIZATION!!
Some of the gemstones used include:
- Phantom Quartz " originated from the Greek Mythological word "Krustallos", meaning "Ice Created by the Gods".
- Brazilian Amethyst " referred to as "Purple Diamonds", has a grading system based on color, crystal size and symmetry.
- Agate " named after the Achates River in Sicily, quite possibly natures most beautiful presentation of dramatic color bands, which are found inside "amethyst geodes".
Each piece expresses a thrilling and romantic provenance reminiscent of "Indiana Jones and Romancing the Stone", while displaying a unique story of evolution in terms of depth and complexity! Artistic Design, Earth Science and Hollywood all come together to make a dramatic statement!
An exceptional gift card accompanies each one-of-a kind creation explaining the design from a geologic and historic perspective, so each recipient can truly understand and appreciate it.
The Crystal Connection is honored to auction select pieces with two of the worlds most prominent and distinguished auction houses: Christies, along with Bonhams & Butterfields.
