100TH ANNIVERSARY OF VOGUE: TWO OF OUR RINGS ARE FEATURED IN THE CENTENNIAL BRITISH VOGUE ISSUE

Vogue has reached its 100th edition. Its special centennial edition is in print and they have chosen to feature the soon to be launched ‚Absolutely Fabulous Movie‘, in its illustrious pages. We are incredibly honoured to have also made it into this edition, onto the pages of this iconic magazine. Jennifer Saunders (alias Eddy of Ab Fab) wears two of our large statement rings on her right hand (seen on page 367) as well as our delicious green jade and tourmaline earrings, although unfortunately these gems were obscured by her characteristically large curly wig. At his London studio David Bailey shot a few of the featuring stars. These stars included Joanna Lumley, Georgia May Jagger, Stephen Jones, Manolo Blahnick and of course Jennifer Saunders. Not in attendance, were some of the other personalities making cameo appearances in the new movie, names such as Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Emma Bunton and many more.
The movie will be released in the UK on 1 July 2016.

AN INTERVIEW WITH DORIS HANGARTNER

When did you first discover your love of gems?
When I was seven years old, my brothers went hiking in the Alps. They brought me back a treasure. They had picked up a grey stone, and the guide struck it with a hammer, revealing that the inside was a silvery sparkle. I was in awe that something so plain on the outside could have such magic on the inside. Since then, I have never ceased to be amazed by the beauty hidden inside rough stones that when cut become extraordinary gems.

What made you want to start your own company?
Since I was little, I dreamed of having my own jewelry shop. As I studied and learned more about gems, I became passionate about finding special stones and sharing them with women who could appreciate their beauty. I also learned that I enjoy designing jewelry that highlights the natural qualities of the gem and working with top goldsmiths in Switzerland to bring my visions to life. As an entrepreneur, I hope that I can enhance my client’s lives by helping them find the perfect stones and bespoke jewelry to adorn them and to complement their busy and fascinating lifestyles.

Do you have a favorite gem?
I love the Paraiba Tourmaline. This rare gem was first discovered in the 1980’s. The stone’s colors range from Caribbean blue to grass green. I love the color tone – looking at it is an instant vacation, like taking a dive into the Caribbean Sea.

How do you know when you have matched a woman to a stone?
The experience is profound and very physical. Literally, when a match is made, a woman’s face glows. One woman will gasp with delight while another might gaze silently in awe and amazement. We both feel when the match has been made – something just feels very right.

What is your vision for your company?
I want to provide women with a very reliable and safe place to buy the most extraordinary gems in the world and to experience and enjoy the exquisite colors of gems and jewelry. I want my brand to stand for authenticity, joy and beauty. I look forward to meeting my customers at bespoke private events around the world and to developing beautiful friendships over the love of gems and jewelry.
