Jewelry always carries the history and opportunities of a country. In 1942, a nightingale desperate for freedom, however, was prisoned in a cage. Why would the designer risk her life for a jewel?
Coco Chanel’s 31 Rue Cambon Apartment has become an inspiration for many designers. The sofa personally designed by Chanel adopted avant-garde chamois leather; the whole apartment was decorated with Chinese handmade screens with camellia patterns; the lightsome beige curtains were dancing in the breeze; the animal sculptures add an exotic atmosphere.
In the long river of time, human is likely to forget things. While, as an intersection of arts, craftsmanship, and culture, jewelry could remember exactly even the outline of a random leaf. So, GEM CODE is always on the road, recording the scenery, natural environment, and cultural traditions by the special language of “Jewelry”, and would like to share with you the beautiful stories along the way.
