Selection Stones and Pearls

B a s e l w o r l d s e l e c t i o n / 1 2 1 3.1/B33 g u s t a v c a e s a r g m B h Paul-Otto Caesar, Managing Director of Gustav Caesar GmbH, has developed his own cut, the so-called “vintage cut”, inspired by the classic aesthetics of antique jewels. This involves as few as possible but highly-precise facets being cut into the stone. As these facets are relatively large, the incoming light is refracted very clearly, enabling the stone to radiate brilliantly and colourfully. “In this way we reduce the stone to its maximum,” says Paul-Otto Caesar, explaining the philosophy behind it. The cutting operation offers premium- quality stones such as tourmaline, tanzanite, peridot, aquamarine and citrine. The impressive portfolio is further augmented by the so-called innovative materials: one example of these is creations in which a thin sliver of Brazilian moss agate is placed between two clear, specially cut pieces of rock crystal. The resulting objects have versatile uses in jewellery design, presenting the unique patterning of the moss agate in unusual ways. Gustav Caesar maintains superb international connections in order to be able to offer products of the highest quality. For example, for over 15 years now the company has been working with cutters from Asia, which enables both enhanced production and access to particular materials. “We even cut highly- sensitive kunzite here,” says Paul-Otto Caesar, “it is said that only the Brazilians are able to do that. We asked ourselves: why should that be the case? So we tried a number of things and finally came up with a way to work these stones too.” Most gemstones are cut in Idar-Oberstein, however. Thanks to classic craftsmanship and modern technology, every gemstone can reveal its full beauty here.
