STARDUST RUBY

In the early 1990s Arje Griegst returned to his lifelong fascination of the universe and created the Cosmos and Stardust series. Each work looks as if the gold has been bombarded by showers of meteorites or distant asteroids, luring us with craters filled with precious stones and gems.

COSMOS & STARDUST HISTORY

Arje Griegst used to note how “the stones talk to me”, something that can be felt in the almost primordial divinity of the Cosmos and Stardust series. Stones and gold twinkle like stars in the firmament, born from Griegst’s fascination with the groundbreaking Hubble telescope images from the 1990s and the ongoing lure of a universe in constant evolution.

COSMOS RING, 20K GOLD WITH A 9 CARAT RAW PINK DIAMOND.

When Arje used stones they often got to keep their original crude state, like meteorites from outer space. 

 

In the 1990s Arje turned his gaze towards the endless celestial sky. He and his wife Irene read everything they could find about outer space, discussing new scientific discoveries and looking with awe and wonder at all the incredible images being beamed back to earth.

 

COSMOS 3 DIAMONDS, 18K GOLD & DOUBLE STARDUST, 18K GOLD.

The stones brood in the light, just as they do in nature. Nothing is permanent, all is fluid.

 

An 18K gold and ruby ring titled ‘Stardust Ruby’ from the 1990s made in Denmark by fine jewellery designer Arje Griegst. The wavy band on the ring joins together at the top, securing a red ruby that is partly covered by the gold. The surface of the gold isn’t smooth but looks coarse, as if the gold resembles the surface of the moon. The inside of the ring is completely smooth. The ring is placed on top of a walnut-coloured sculptural piece resembling a stone formation, sitting against a white backdrop.
