The Art of Marquetry Showcased in LINLEY Precious Stone Collection

There are just four precious stones in the world and LINLEY has created jewellery boxes for the three most famous – The Diamond, Sapphire and Ruby.

LINLEY PRECIOUS STONE COLLECTION

The Sapphire and The Ruby are created in a stunning myriad of different hues to match the glimmering facet cuts of stones. Each veneer is hand-dyed and precisely pieced together in an abstract marquetry pattern to reflect the angular form.

Handcrafted With Style and Design

The Sapphire and The Ruby are handcrafted in solid sycamore with straight and ripple sycamore veneers which, inspired by the refractions of light when looking into a sapphire and ruby, have been creatively dyed to glimmer in the light; Truncated corners, complex angled sides and a chamfered lid also ring true to the shape of an exquisitely cut precious stone.

Details Inside and Out

The eye-catching colours of the boxes are replicated inside; the removable tray and base of The Sapphire is lined in plush navy blue faux suede and The Ruby in deep scarlet. At the centre of the compartmentalised tray is a padded ring slot designed to hold a single, most precious ring.

The Art of Marquetry

Just as the cutting of precious stones is a delicate process requiring great skill, precision, scientific knowledge, tools and experience, the art of marquetry demands meticulous attention to detail and many years of practice from the finest craftsmen to achieve the levels created at LINLEY. This is evident in each one of the jewellery boxes, from the complex shape to the faceted cut of the nickel escutcheon and the minutely accurate precision of the veneers, which took over one hundred hours for one skilled craftsman to create.
