On the Point of a Diamond

/ Israel

The Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum in Ramat Gan is showing the exhibit "On the Point of a Diamond" – a cooperative effort between diamantaires and jewelry designers. The exhibit displays diamond jewelry pieces designed by members of the Israeli jewelry design community that are set with diamonds donated by Israeli diamond companies - an unconventional meeting between the classic world of fine diamonds and the world of contemporary art and design.

The Israeli designer community initiated the idea and the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum joined forces and provided financial backing and a fitting location for the exhibit.

Twenty-five jewelers designed and created the jewelry, which were designed in a variety of materials – gold, silver, iron, steel, stainless steel, copper, bronze, perspex, and wood.

Twenty-four diamond companies from the Israeli diamond sector donated 308 diamonds that weighed a total of 86 carats.

The name of the exhibit, "On the Point of a Diamond," uses one of the common names for the culet of a diamond and hints that a diamond set in a piece of jewelry lends it added interest but that the design of a jewel and meticulous care in every single detail while manufacturing it are of no less importance.

Exhibit: On the Point of a Diamond

Dates: January 2010-August 2010

Curators: Ms. Batya Wang and Mr. Yehuda Kassif kassifus@yahoo.com
