Description
Named one of the most creative French jewelers in the 1960s by the press, Jean Dinh Van designed innovative and subtly humorous pieces that were a breath of fresh air in the staid world of jewelry, which was still dominated at the time by traditional parure designs intended to be worn with high-fashion outfits and reserved for special occasions. Today the house of Dinh Van perpetuates the contemporary, timeless, minimalist esthetic of its creator. Nothing is automated or mechanized: The artisan is led by a passion for metal and attention to accuracy when hammering a 24-karat-gold disc. This craftsmanship gives birth to a unique creation, combining design and technique. Dinh Van’s creations have always been inspired by observation of the world and everyday objects, and since the beginning, Dinh Van collections have included pieces with a sophisticated sense of humor, from Menottes rings and Chinese Pi discs to entwined hearts or razor blade motifs. This elegantly illustrated volume reviews the iconic creations of the house whose spirit continues to reach wider audiences.
