We love an unusual find, and this collection of two very unusual pieces from London Goldsmith Konstantin Liamin is something you'll never see elsewhere. Both pieces are one-of-a-kind and were completely handmade in the oldest traditions of goldsmithing.
The cover of the gold scripture book depicts Jesus surrounded by his apostles, followed by 10 pages of finely wrought and hand engraved Bible text from Matthew 5:1-48 and Model Prayer Matthew 6:9-13. The back cover has Archangel Michael framed by Seraphim.
The Caesar bracelet, which is incredibly detailed in 18 karat yellow gold, has six round and six octagonal custom cut pieces of nephrite jade of the finest quality. It was completely made by hand and is finished with a fabulous opalescent enamel.
Konstantin learned and honed his craft in his native Russia. He was taught by one of the country's most respected goldsmiths in the reserved tradition of jewelers like Karl Faberge.
A personal invitation by Bentley and Skinner of Bond Street London, led Konstantin to be involved in the creation of Damian Hirst's famed diamond skull.
His workshop is currently in London's Hatton Garden. If you are in Naples, we invite you to see and experience these in person.
