VULCAN JEWELRY GILT LAUREL CUFF REVIEW
Jewellery is always better when it’s received as a gift, and even better when it’s a surprise. As I got ready for the big day at Harrods Christmas In July, and started thinking about what jewellery I was going to wear, I remembered a beautiful cuff I had received from Vulcan Jewelry. It was perfect! A wreath of 20 gilt leaves. So festive! Just right for a Christmas party!Design Value for money Showstopper Durability Craftsmanship Investment Packaging GEMOLOGUE SCORE
When I first laid eyes on this cuff bracelet, I recognized immediately the Art Nouveau influence in its structure and form as the Austrian style, Jugenstil that I had learned so much about when I was living in Vienna. Art Nouveau is an art movement that influenced the whole of Europe at the turn of the 20th century and was made famous by great artists like Gustav Klimt and Aubrey Beardsley. It was a movement that touched every discipline of art and craftsmanship at the time.
Vulcan’s style is a new take on Art Nouveau and involves 3D print technology, making this bracelet an interesting fusion of 20th century art and 21st century technology in a form recognized from 3rd century Greece! With the aid of 3D print technology, Vulcan by Desmond Chan can produce intricate jewellery with much more detail than traditional methods.
I loved wearing this piece; it took me back to my days in Vienna and reminded me of one of my favorite art movements. A lot of the guests noticed the style of the piece at breakfast and later at a friend’s rooftop party, it was a conversation starter that drifted off into Art Nouveau and Vienna and flowers. We all came to the conclusion that rose gold and an unpolished finish would be the best combo.
The Gold-plated Gilt Laurel Bracelet is available online for $180
