    About Carnelian Gemstone

    Carnelian is a semi-precious quartz stone related to chalcedony variety. It’s famous for its orange color that can vary from a pale orange to an intense reddish-brown. The source of the sunset stone color is iron oxide. Carnelian transparency runs from totally translucent to semi-opaque.

    The word “carnelian” comes from a Latin word “carneush” meaning “fleshy”. It symbolizes bold energy and a vigorous spirit.

    Carnelian comes mostly in cabochons and beads. However, jewelry designers carve it into different shapes and forms. Quite often it’s carved into cameos and can be worn as pendants. Famous jewelry Houses, such as VCA and David Webb have implemented carnelian into their iconic collection.


    Architectural Jewelry

    The intersection of architecture and jewelry design has resulted in the creation of one-of-a-kind pieces. Architectural elements in jewelry making draw inspiration from the structural principles and motifs found in urban landscapes.

    Incorporating elements like arches and columns from classical architecture brings a timeless elegance to jewelry. For instance, columns can be echoed in the vertical arrangements of gemstones and metalwork. The use of negative space, a fundamental concept in architecture, is another intriguing element in jewelry design. Openwork and cutout patterns create voids that contribute to a sense of airiness.

    Modern and contemporary architecture, with its emphasis on sleek lines and geometric shapes, has also influenced jewelry design. Angular forms and minimalist structures find their way into avant-garde pieces.

    By applying architectural elements, jewelers express artistic visions and narratives. Whether recreating the greatness of historical buildings or embracing the sleek lines of contemporary structures, these designs embody the connection between two disciplines that create objects of beauty.
