Fine jewelry is one of the best gifts to give to a woman. Earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets – there is so much from which to choose. Of course, 18-karat gold pieces do not come cheap, but it is sure to bring a shine to her eyes. Speaking of 18-karat gold jewelry, Brazilian jeweler H. Stern has launched a new sphere-inspired collection. Interestingly, the collection is named “Copernicus”. Yes, the reference is to the 16th-century German astronomer who believed that the sun is at the center of the solar system. His heliocentric model was later proved to be correct, even though many refuted the idea at the time.
Centuries later, Copernicus’ concept of the planets encircling the sun has inspired a jewelry collection by H. Stern. Robert Stern, the president and creative director of the jewelry house revealed that nature has always been an inspiration for the firm. He added, “This time I had orbits on my mind.” The Copernicus collection includes 24 pieces of 18-karat gold. A signature diamond bead is used on several of the pieces. Loops, spheres, curves and a sense of infinity pervades the pieces in this collection.
