Here’s a question for you: Do you like art? Jewelry is just another form of art – wearable art. Since ancient times, people have adorned themselves for beauty, for power, for good fortune. A perfect modern example of this self expression is the jewelry of Alex Sepkus. An award winning master designer, the artistry of Alex Sepkus is truly original.
His designs are made in 18kt yellow gold, rose gold, platinum and palladium. Alex Sepkus jewelry features natural white diamonds (F-G color, VVS clarity), natural colored diamonds and unusual color mixes of high quality gemstones including sapphires, tourmalines, spinels and opals. Each piece is handcrafted in microscopic detail by 18 artisans in his NYC workshop. An art fan myself, I find the detail and artistry of his work to be reminiscent of the great symbolist painter Gustave Klimpt. When you see Alex Sepkus jewelry firsthand, the quality and detail will jump out at you and distinguish itself from other designers.
That no one has ever copied an Alex Sepkus piece speaks to how complicated and technically challenging his work is. His work is highly collectible. Different pieces coordinate well among the collection. An appraisal expert from the fine, estate, and antique jewelry department at Christy’s examined Alex’s collections. The expert stated: “In 50 years, people will be fighting for these pieces at auction.” His fine jewelry designs are unique and beautiful but not necessarily formal. Comfortable to wear, Sepkus designs are equally suitable for casual attire as well as special occasions, his designs fit into our increasing informal lifestyles with ease.
Collectors and art fans alike have an opportunity to view (and maybe purchase) a large selection of Alex Sepkus jewelry at an upcoming trunk show at The Gem Collection. The trunk show will be held March 12th and 13th, (Friday and Saturday) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Trust me jewelry and art fans – this is one event you won’t want to miss! See you there:)
