MADAME May issue
Beloved companions is the theme featuring our unique OPERA piece.
In nearly all human cultures the eye enjoys a magical significance. It embodies brightness, light, clear-sightedness and the psyche – and radiates so much warmth and fascination that we can hardly escape it. Each eye is unique, an expression of an unmistakable personality. People that we love instinctively become "the apple of our eye".
In the Orient, India and the Balkans people present those close to them with an eye amulet, to protect them from the "evil eye".
One gemstone that reflects the fascinating characteristics of the eye like no other is the opal. In ancient times its value was already highly appreciated, sometimes even more than diamonds. And each opal is truly unique.
At BASELWORLD 2013 VICTOR MAYER presents a fabulously beautiful opal (14.7 carat) in an exclusive necklace in its luxury collection Opera. Glowing in every colour of the rainbow, the opal in the centre is surrounded by a fire enamel guilloché wreath of golden sunrays, ending in a ribbon of sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds.
An absolute one-off. An eye amulet for a very precious person indeed.
Pendant, 18kt yellow/white gold, gris violace fire enamel, diamonds 2.16ct, Australian white opal 14.74ct

Editorial feature in "Veritable Pforzheim"
Pforzheim lives up to its reputation as a City of gold. VICTOR MAYER is featured in this publication as one of the key traditional manufacturers who count on Pforzheim as a location. We especially love the great photography of our Constance necklace. We assume you agree.
The new VICTOR MAYER Constance collection which is an homage to the beauty of nature. It is inspired by Ernst Haeckel, a late 19th century biologist, whose „Art forms of Nature“ influenced the Art Nouveau movement and still occupies a place in art and design to this day. Constance is opulent jewellery for a perfect appearance on the social stage or at private events. It traces the remarkable structures of the radiolarians faithfully sketched by Haeckel, revealing incredible colours from the depths of the oceans.
