The products of a curious mind

  • • Igor's jewellery is inspired by the properties of the materials he uses
  • • He loves telling stories through objects
  • • He specialises in using Milanese mesh and titanium

Igor Siebold decided to become a jeweller because he loved shapes and materials. Curiosity is an important part of his personality, which led him very early on to explore the properties of each material. Did you know that titanium chips burn, creating a light so intense it looks like fireworks? In uncovering such secrets, Igor learned to use materials with great respect for their different features, something that has become a key element of his work. For example, inspired by the lightness of titanium, he created a pair of earrings called Satellites, weighing just 4.2 grams each. While titanium is the metal that fascinates him the most, he also uses gold, silver, platinum and palladium.

Two rings, one in silver and one in gold, carry the following inscription in French “This ring cannot carry all my words but invites you to read in my thoughts”. Clients can request any text on the ring in multiple styles including code, Gothic, handwritten or typographic font. The inspiration for the ring initially came from the golf balls on an IBM typewriter, a representation of written mechanical communication.
