Thinking outside the bezel, Master designer Ron Rizzo and DTC sightholder PLUCZENIK team up to create unique diamond mosaics.
Forget everything you know about setting diamonds. Toss out all the rules. Now imagine a world in which an artist can craft a beautiful mosaic of diamonds and only diamonds - no metal prongs to distract from the brilliant sparkle and color of each stone. Impossible? Think again!
You might envision a piece of jewelry which diamonds of varying shapes and sizes are snugly nestled girdle-to-girdle, facet beside facet, blending together in shining ombres of bright color or contrasting with pure white diamonds in geometric or curving patterns and shapes, never before possible with traditional metal jewelry settings.
Welcome to the world of Plevé- a world where such unbridled creativity lives.
Plevé is a new brand. It's also a new art form and patented technique invented by master designer Ron Rizzo and nurtured by DTC sightholder Pluczenik. It can best be described as a free, creative use of all possible diamond shapes, sizes, and colors in a kaleidoscopic harmony of pure artistic form. Each piece of Plevé Diamond Jewelry is handmade and one of-a-kind.
Ron Rizzo explains:
"If you look back in jewelry history", he says, "there have been a lot of technological inventions that have advanced the industry. But basically it has all been based on the same craft. This is a new craft."
The artisans who assemble Plevé jewelry are not your typical stone setters. Rather, they are graduates of art schools who have been specifically recruited to bring a non-traditional source of expertise to the table. There is a unique blend of accomplished illustrators, sculptors, and ceramists on the team, as well as jewelry design graduates, who all contribute their own aesthetic sensibility to each Plevé Diamond Mosaic piece.
The result- this harmony between different sizes, shapes and colors- is described by company principals as "magic."
Come experience the magic. It's one thing to read about Plevé Diamond Mosaics, but even better to view them-- and better yet to wear them as a truly original piece of art.
