A SAPPHIRE AND DIAMOND 'KANAWAGA' RING, BY JULIE GENET Of scalloped design, set throughout with brilliant-cut diamonds and a blue gradation of circular-cut sapphires representing a wave from Kanawaga, mounted in 18K gold, diamonds 1.32ct total, sapphires 3.30cts total, signed JGJ, maker's mark, French assay mark, with maker's pouch and case, ring size N½ By using different shades of blue and varying sizes of sapphire and white diamonds, Julie Genet tried to represent a wave and the irregular shape of its foam. This ring was named after Hokusai's woodblock print "Kanagawa". Julie Genet For Julie Genet, medieval architecture with its impenetrable castellated walls inhabited by knights' whose tales and thwarted love stories, have been a constant fascination. This period is a source of inspiration for the design of certain pieces, with Julie using its symbols and legends as the foundations of her craft. It is, however, a fictional Middle Age, where magic exists and heroes of mythology, legends, literature and cinema intermingle. It is a world where women are strong and muses have superpowers. Each of the collections is conceived as a kingdom populated by jewel characters. Constellation, fabulous galaxy studded with multi-coloured meteorites, flaming golden stars, revolves around Vegas, Tatooine's twin planet. Here, the codes of the game world - poker, backgammon, checkers, chess - have breathed life into the escaped kings and queens of the Legends kingdom where King Frog, Ulysses, Aragorn and Bluebeard are waging a merciless war for the hand of the Lady of the Lake. Each of Julie's pieces of jewellery is a wonderful creature from this fantastic world, making them unique, precious and playful pieces. Despite her initial career as a dental surgeon, she always had an interest in creating jewellery. She took advantage of dental prosthesis techniques, similar to that of classic jewellery, to create her models. Shegraduated from the Gemological Association of Great Britain in 2011, with a collection of pieces, with a strong sense of style and character based around her fantastical universe. She built up a small but loyal clientele and now devotes herself full time to the creation of precious jewellery. In 2016, in collaboration with her sister Caroline, she launched the eponymous brand Julie Genet Joaillerie.
