Publisher's description: Now celebrating seventy years of tradition and innovation, Brazilian jeweler H.Stern was crowned "the king of colored gemstones" by Time magazine. In 1945, Hans Stern fell in love with precious jewels. At a small office in Rio de Janeiro, he created what was to become the largest jeweler in Brazil and Latin America -- and one of the most celebrated in the world. H.Stern's first fifty years are characterized by vivid aquamarine, amethyst, and topaz gems, mirroring the vivid hues and pulsing energy of Brazil that German-born Stern found so fascinating when he moved there. Before his influence, the jewelry industry's focus remained on diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, but H.Stern's unique and striking pieces quickly made Brazilian colored gemstones desirable and valuable. Current artistic director Roberto Stern, building on the technical foundations laid down by his father, has led the company into the present, collaborating with some of the world's most fascinating creative minds -- from Tim Burton to Diane von Furstenberg to Grupo Corpo -- to design spellbinding collections for the modern woman. While continuing to emphasize Hans Stern's value of craftsmanship, today's H.Stern is defined by subtle yet daring and inventive pieces -- the glittering results of Roberto Stern's goal to "do something that's outstanding."
