Gurhan jewelry often uses high karat gold, set with semi precious and precious stones. Here, they are channeling the painter Gustav Klimt, using a colourful array of stones to mimic his own aesthetic.
The site explains, “The Embrace Collection: Klimt x Gurhan = a union of artistry infused with color and passion. In this extraordinary collection of gold jewelry, Gurhan draws his inspiration from the iconic Klimt painting, the Embrace. One side contains organic, swirling forms representing the womanly form, the other side, geometric shapes representing the male. Precious gems, bronze and high karat gold create a blend of color and form. Gurhan’s homage to Klimt is one of his boldest collections and is itself a work of art. Make one of these Gurhan jewelry designs yours and you will have a lasting memento of two of the world’s greatest artists.”
This bracelet is made of 22k yellow gold, set primarily with rhodolite. This sells for USD$8,500.
