Crevoshay

Post by Christine Webb

One of my very favorite jewelry designers for the past 25 years is Paula Crevoshay, the Queen of Color! From the first time I visited her booth at the Las Vegas AGTA GemFair, I was wowed by the most beautiful colorful display of fine jewelry I had ever seen.

What sets Paula's pieces apart is her attention to detail, the engineering and manufacturing, and most importantly, the combining of extraordinary colored gemstones to create vibrant opulent jewelry.  Crevoshay jewels are one-of-a-kind art jewels.  Each piece is hand crafted in 18k yellow gold with incredible gemstones of the finest color and cut.  Many of the pieces incorporate ancient techniques of etching, engraving, piercing and granulation - created by master goldsmiths.  Crevoshay is influenced by nature as seen in her gem-encrusted flowers and butterflies.  She also takes inspiration from the antiquity of Asia as seen in many of her timeless, elegant designs.  Paula's pieces are collected by connoisseurs around the world and exhibited in major museums including the Smithsonian, Carnegie, Headley-Whitney, and Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
