Jonas, what makes you want to keep the family company flame burning?

It occurred to me during one of my extended stays abroad that it would be an awful shame to let it falter or even die. As far as the craft is concerned, a part of the intrigue to me is the maker’s enthralling process of fashioning the pieces reflecting the vogue, unifying time-proven tradition and newest technology. A line of men/unisex pieces which I’ve recently been working on presents an opportunity to realise one of my design dreams.

Which gems crafted by your workshop do you relate to best?

Undoubtedly the ones custom-made. Beside meeting the customer’s request in itself, a perfectly unique piece of jewellery is fashioned. Hence my delight at the gleeful and special occasions, such as engagement, wedding, birthday, which are all signified by our custom-made piece. As a matter of fact, we can even say that it gets downright personal, and it’s this type of intimate custom I enjoy.

Do you offer a selection of ready jewellery lines?

Of course, there are pieces made from yellow, rose and white gold, even platinum. There is a line of silver designs by Jolana Novakova, too. Your custom will be esteemed at 11 Solnicni St, Brno.
