Nature’s Jewels

Hemmerle’s Nature’s Jewels collection consisting of
twelve brooches, two pairs of earrings, a necklace and
a ring was inspired by fruits, seeds, leaves and trees.
The realism and innovative use of materials in the
collection captures woodland tones alongside the
textures of vibrant exotic fruits.

The collection was celebrated with the publication
of a poetry book, Nature’s Jewels.  Produced in a
limited edition, this unique selection of jewels and
poems is published by the art-book publisher MACK
with poems sourced by the poet Greta Bellamacina.
Poems in eight different languages feature in the book,
transcribed in calligraphy in their original language
and in English.

Writing by Alice Oswald, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
Octavio Paz, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and
Arthur Rimbaud all feature in the book alongside
other celebrated poets.

Our own philosophy resonates with poetry - originality, beauty, boldness, creativity, and technical understanding also go into making a Hemmerle jewel.

In tausend Formen magst du dich verstecken

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
