« … I would stand transfixed before the windows of the confectioners' shops, fascinated by the luminous sparkle of candied fruits, the cloudy lustre of jellies, the kaleidoscope inflorescence of acidulated fruit drops - red, green, orange, violet: I coveted the colours themselves as much as the pleasure they promised me. … » (Simone de Beauvoir, Mémoires d’une jeune fille rangée, 1958).

Thus, the time of an exhibition, the gallery is transformed into a giant kaleidoscope...

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

 

ALL NIESSING : 8th - 9th December 2018

with the presence of Verena Darlath, Head Designer

 

Niessing, the inventor of Tension Ring and …

The NIESSING manufacture was thrown into the limelight nearly 40 years ago when the Tension Ring, The Niessing Ring® was created. This ring, constituting a veritable revolution in the art of crimping a diamond that seems suspended, has entered the collections of the MOMA in New York. It has become iconic and Niessing has declined in more than 10 models.

The other highlight of Niessing is its range of precious metal colors, the result of a real work of alchemist started in the 80s. With "Solaris", a gradient of yellow gold to red, their latest, Niessing now offers 12 colors of 750 ‰ gold and platinum, a real circle of 13 colors.
