LAPIDARY (TIGER EYE)
Traditionally – lapidary refers to the art and the artisans who fashion stones, mineral and gemstones into decorative items. It is in fact perhaps the most intriguing of aesthetic beautifications as the artist must use sheer precision, eye for detail, and care to take hard stone and create the stunning works of precious art possible.
In creating these one of a kind dials, the lapidarists at Earnshaw – have created timepieces that are more than watches, they are in fact pieces of jeweled art. Each one unique, each one limited in edition and in execution.
Fewer people take up the tools of the lapidarists, and at Earnshaw – we wish to pay homage and celebrate the works of these craftsmen and women. The Lapidarist collection utilizes their rare skill to create unique collectables painted with colours of natures own palette.
