Things are not born complicated. At the moment of creation, everything is simple, clear and clean-lined. Pure. At its best, jewellery design, just like any design, is about protecting the clarity of the original idea from superfluous decoration and compromise. The most beautiful jewellery will retain the lucidity of the moment of its conception.
Jewellery is, however, made to be worn. A violin has a pure sound if it has been skilfully made, but it is made to express the moods of its player rather than of its maker. The same is true with jewellery: its beauty is meant to emphasise that of its wearer. Jewellery represents the feelings, memories, and important decisions that it is connected to and that its wearer wants to hold for others to see. Presence, which has been forged to last forever. The material or the design is not the most valuable part of jewellery: the times we wear it are the gems to be cherished.
Oz Jewel is a Finnish jewellery shop specialising in modern gold and silver jewellery in Helsinki, on unioninkatu 15. The owners, goldsmith Tiina Arkko and silversmith Vesa Nilsson, design and manufacture their range for discerning customers who are looking for something new and clean-lined in jewellery design.
Oz Jewel creates jewellery that, rather than stand out on its own, emphasises the personality of its wearer. All Oz Jewel pieces are made with high-quality gemstones, 18-carat yellow gold, palladium white gold or sterling silver. Oz Jewel also manufactures bespoke jewellery for business gifts and personal use.
