Spotlight: July 4th

Mahnaz Ispahani

Here’s a fitting piece of jewelry to celebrate July 4th: a man on the moon brooch made of 18 karat yellow and white gold, and enamel. Designed to commemorate the first moon landing by American spaceflight Apollo 11 in 1969, this brooch was designed by the Belgian jewelers Pierre & Jacques Leysen soon after the landing. Only 10 of the brooches were made. (One of these brooches was given as a gift to President Nixon in 1969, his first year in office.)

February is the Month for Gifts

Mahnaz Ispahani

As Emily Dickinson famously wrote, “The heart wants what it wants.” Let us all celebrate love and caring this month and throughout the year.

Our featured piece this month is this unusual hammered gold cuff, based on the myth of Vulcan’s forge.

The offspring of Jupiter and Juno, Vulcan was the god of fire and volcanoes, whose forge stands beneath Mt. Aetna, in Sicily. In Greek mythology, this mighty metal smith created not only shields and armor, but also fantastic jewels, and is often shown with hammers and anvils, and other tools of his trade. Velázquez and Tintoretto painted Vulcan. Giorgio Vasari made masterly drawings and also painted him. Closer to our cuff is the Venetian, Palma Giovane’s, painting “Venus and Cupid at Vulcan’s Forge” (1610).  

On our bracelet putti, little cherubs, toil as Vulcan’s able assistants, perhaps helping him make a necklace for his mother or a bracelet for his wife, Venus.
