Enamel Diamond Wedding Rings

 

There is a mysterious world full of magic of the Carpathian mountains. Space there changes its perspective and dimensions and a folk music instrument “trembila” still informs people about happy and bad news.

For a long time Hutsuls have been making brass. This kind of artistic metalworking hasbeen famous since Ancient Egypt age. Its advent in Ukraine is connected with the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture. In the Hutsuls land it has developed and become a specific kind of art.

By foundry smiths first made templates which were encrusted with stamps and ornaments. This tradition lasted for centuries, but in the 20th century the art of making brass was almost forgotten.

Gold wedding ring “Carpathian Brass” by the Lobortas Classic Jewelry House is a precious memory of the ancestors. The jewelers made the shape plain, even rough. Then it was ornamented with ethnic hutsul motifs. Folk ornaments and diamonds look like a traditional embroidered shirt which reminds us of Carpathian woods and folk talismans.

Tradition, originality and modernity are characteristic features of pieces of art by the Lobortas Classic Jewelry House.
