Looking back at an amazing week, where we hosted the official launch of Van Gelder Indian Jewellery – Contemporary Collections at Morton’s Private Club on Berkeley Square in London.
The beautiful, age old, meaningful designs and craftsmanship of traditional Indian heritage jewellery has always stirred our imagination.
Progressively this triggered a creative process, which eventually led up to the expansion of Van Gelder Indian Jewellery with the our own, contemporary jewellery designs.
The Collections, comprising of inspiring, quality pieces of Indian jewellery, whether age old or our contemporary designs, are not only about fashion or superficial beauty – ‘what the eye can see’. Core to these pieces are the ‘invisible’, distinctive aspects: the creative and production process that makes a vision a reality, the sourcing, quality and beauty of the materials used; as well as the often times strong symbolic and emotional meaning of a design or material.
With this expansion we are moving the Company into a new and exciting direction, where Van Gelder Indian Jewellery – Contemporary Collections exists next to Van Gelder Indian Jewellery – Heritage Collection, our forever, first love!
To us, it is the best of both worlds and an absolute dream come true!
