CONCEPTS, COLOURS & GEMS – A CREATIVE DAY WITH POMELLATO

The Task was nothing less than to create a jewellery collection where unusual minerals become a work of art. Armonie Minerali should be a collection that shows raw beauty and nature within a surprising combination of minerals. The rings and pendants should combine minerals that are little-known and often overlooked.

And where else would you find these kind of unusual combination of gems than at Constantin Wild hidden gems stone home. As his partner in this lavish project, Vincenco Castaldo – Pomellato’s Creative Director – chose Constantin Wild of Idar-Oberstein, because in a unique way, we as a gemstone manufacturer full of tradition offer the whole spectrum of the fascination of gemstones, from the raw stone to final production, under a single roof.

The result speaks for itself. “This new collection is a game of complicity between Man and Nature, where craftsmanship and natural beauty unite in a joyous dance of unexpected combinations to form a new unity. After all, playfulness, with a touch of irony and irreverence, is a defining trait of Pomellato”, Vincenzo Castaldo describes the Armonie Minerali collection.

German Gemstone Museum – Personal Insights with Constantin Wild

To experience the world of gemstones is to experience the world of Constantin Wild.

When visiting Constantin Wild, he rolls out the red carpet to dive into this special world. Part of the gem world is the town Idar-Oberstein – especially the German Gemstone Museum – based right opposite Constantin Wild`s birthhouse. The very exterior of the museum, housed in a jugendstil villa, takes your breath away. On three floors, it provides a home to all the gems of the world. Constantin Wild regales his guests with stories about the genesis and the processing of these colourful minerals, which were discovered centuries ago. At that time, it took a gemstone prospector a year to dig even a meter into the hillside and extract the exquisite stones from the earth. Hopefully your piece of jewelry won`t take as long as that.

Jetzt in der ARD Mediathek (stream) 

SWR-Reporter Jens Hübschen entführt Sie in die farbige Edelsteinwelt von Idar-Oberstein, im felsigen Naheland. Was das mit Überraschungseiern und Mandeln zu tun hat, erfahren Sie in der Dokumentation.

Ich sage es ja schon immer: Idar-Oberstein ist eine der schönsten Orte in Deutschland. Dies gilt besonders für Edelsteinfans. Schließlich ist meine Heimat die Wiege der Edelsteinindustrie. Auf eine spannende Spurensuche begab sich kürzlich auch ein Team des deutschen Fernsehsenders SWR. Die Faszination begann vor Jahrhunderten und hält an. Damals wurden die ersten Achate in Felsen aus Vulkangestein gefunden. Rasch siedelten sich die besten Edelsteinschleifer und Goldschmiede an. Und auch heute noch begeistert der Mythos der Edelsteine. Doch wie ist das möglich? In der Dokumentation öffne ich die Türen meiner Schatzkammer und plaudere ein wenig über meine faszinierende Welt der Edelsteine – und mein geliebtes Idar-Oberstein.
