Brushed gold refers to a texturing technique used on metal surface. The brushed gold is not shiny but matt. Tiny parallel lines are scratched onto the surface thanks to a wire brush or a polishing tool. Among jewelry designers using brushed gold, there is Marco Bicego in his collections “Africa” and “Lunaria”. The Italian jewelry house Buccellati uses also this technique.
The Greek jewelry designer Ilias Lalaounis creates exquisite gold and antique inspired jewels. He is the fourth generation of a family of goldsmiths and watchmakers from Delphi in Greece. The gold is magnificent and luminous. Passionate by art and history, he creates jewelry inspired from different times and lands (Hellenistic, Paleolithic, Neolithic, Amerindian, Arabesques, Celtic, Mesopotamia, Byzantine, Vikings, Pre-Columbian, Africa-Nubia…). All the jewels are real pieces of art. There is also a silver collection.
