Essence : Gems & jewels of the heart

Doris Hangartners love of stones and her fascination for them was sparked at a young age by a rock found in the Swiss mountains. On the outside it looked like a plain gray rock. Cracked open, the now visible sparkling and shimmering insides left her mesmerized. The quest to discover what is within a stone was born. Still today she wonders what worlds are hidden inside these rocks waiting to be explored.

Touch : Feel them

Such a variety of sensations are evoked, imagine the touch of a gentle pearl on your skin, experience the weight and the smooth polish of a Mandarin Garnet cabochon, the intricate carving and waxy texture of Jade and the precise facets of a brilliant Tsavorite Garnet.
