H.Stern Copernicus jewels

H.Stern, the Brazilian luxury jewellery house, turns to a 15th century astronomer for inspiration for its Copernicus collection of jewels. Copernicus, who challenged the assumption that the planets revolved around the earth, proved a vital fact that we now take for granted. He was the first to realise that our planetary system revolves around the sun and not the earth and used the power of reason to light up the mysteries of the universe.

With all things celestial as its guide, the Copernicus collection brings the mystery and beauty of the heavens to jewels. Golden orbs studded with diamonds are reminiscent of the sun and other celestial bodies.  Spheres woven out of 'noble gold' an H.Stern alloy of golds that tempers the heat of yellow gold with the cool sheen of white gold, float lightly on the skin in long drop earrings, a dramatic outsized three-link bracelet, rings and a sautoir style chains tipped with the orbs  as well as a malleable mesh necklace. The rings are particularly appealing with their prominent domed shapes that sit comfortably on the finger. The criss cross of strands of metal in these rings create vaulted shapes like the star-studded domes of Renaissance cathedrals or the early globes tracking the heavens.

H.Stern, the global luxury jewellery house was founded in 1945 and is one of the five largest jewellery companies in the world with 300 points of sale. The success of H.Stern, set up by Hans Stern and still run by his sons, has been based on transforming coloured gem stones into a global luxury product.  H.Stern is such an institution in Brazil that every year 150,000 visitors walk through H. Stern's precious stones museum, making it Rio's fourth largest tourist destination.

And H.Stern is not just about the brightly coloured stones of its native Brazil. Around the world H.Stern is known for its bold designs and jewels that dance on the skin and capture the sensuality of Brazil. The Copernicus range is an example of how original design, craftsmanship and a sprinkling of diamonds can speak to a universal audience.
