(1888PressRelease) August 01, 2010 - HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Simone & Son, Southern California's premier jewelers serving Newport Beach to San Diego (anyway to throw in a northbound area too?) for more than thirty years, announced that designer Shant Dakessian has participated in the Swarovski Gem Visions 2011 trend book. The 2011 edition of the Swarovski book focuses on precision cut genuine and created gemstones.
"Swarovski is well known in the crystal industry, and is making its mark equally in the area of fine and created gemstones," said Shant Dakessian, designer and certified gemologist, Simone & Son. "I'm honored to be invited and among the esteemed designers to participate in this collaborative effort."
According to its web site, Swarovski Gem Visions seeks to stimulate creativity and originality in design and manufacturing, influencing the jewelry industry. Select designers were invited to contribute their designs, showcasing the latest direction and trends in gemstones and created gems. Like other art, jewelry design is influenced by the economy, world events, pop culture and technology. Gem Visions designers hail from all over the world and imbue their creations with elements of their respective environments.
The precision cut design by Dakessian featured in Gem Visions 2011 is an 18-carat gold and sterling silver ring reminiscent of rings from the Sagrada Collection by Simone & Son. The piece is designed with Celtic and Gothic influences using Swarovski Genuine Gems, including Garnet center stones and side stones of white topaz and black spinel.
