If you would like to see gold turned into an artform of its own, the fused precious metals of traditional Japanese Mokume Gane is bound to please. The distinctive wood-grain- like fusion of metals was once the ultimate status symbol of the samurai. Now you can wear this mark of distinction too.
Traditional Mokume Gane incorporates silver into the combination of fused metals. Jaume Labro has developed a unique process that allows him to create similar nature-inspired patterns using nothing but various gold alloys. This process is unique to his studio and represents a trade secret. Although all Jaume Labro’ fine jewelry is distinctive, Royal Mokume epitomizes Jaume Labro’s love of the unique.
Imagine jewelry that seems to consist of nothing but diamonds. Although they are set in the finest white gold, the gold is barely visible. It’s as if an icily beautiful constellation of diamonds has united into a single glacier of icy splendor. Although the effect is light and airy, the precious stones are nonetheless securely set - but the observer would be hard put to see quite how this was achieved.
The most magnificent precious stones in the world were Jaume Labro’s first love as a stone cutter and gemologist. He initially became a goldsmith so that he could create the perfect setting to display each stone to its best advantage. Now, he showcases his love of precious gems in settings where the gem itself is not only the focal point but seems to be all the jewelry item consists of. Rare gems combine with diamonds, yet one can scarcely see the gold that holds each stone in place.
