Berr & Partners SA - In the kingdom of the golden pagodas

Berr & Partners SA - In the kingdom of the golden pagodas

5 February 2015

As part of their never-ending quest to collect the most perfect and exceptional gemstones, Elke Berr and her husband, Thomas, showcase their new-found treasures embodied in a mythical and fascinating jewellery collection.

For more than 28 years, Elke and Thomas Berr have unearthed the crème de la crème of precious gemstones to the joy of their many clients. And, even though their company, Berr & Partners SA, is widely recognized for the exceptional quality of its natural gems, high standards of craftsmanship, and excellent customer service, the couple goes even further, promoting and upholding the professional and ethical standards of the gemstone industry.

Because of their high level of expertise, Elke and Thomas are also consultants for banks, investors, and insurance companies that rely on their estimates and their knowledge in the business of “art banking.”

Bagan: Ring in 18K pink gold (7.51g) set with a 4.89-ct natural red Burmese spinel and two white pear-shaped diamonds (0.37ct), surrounded by diamonds (0.62ct).

Always forging ahead and never looking back, Elke and Thomas set tomorrow’s trends with their collections of timeless jewellery. Sold under the brand, Elke Berr Creations, it represents the jewellery side of Berr & Partners SA. Its beautiful and original designs have attracted a wide following of clients who also request custom-made and unique pieces with special gemstones.

Among the exquisite collections made by Elke Berr Creations are Aqua, Bubble, African Flame, Iris, and Icy. For her latest creations, Elke has travelled to Myanmar— previously known as Burma—to source even more beautiful and rare gems for her very special pieces.

Himalaya: Ring in 18K white gold (4.49g) set with a 3.22-ct natural royal blue Burmese sapphire and two pear-shaped white diamonds (0.37ct), surrounded by diamonds (0.14ct).

Mogok’s Majestic Treasures

Myanmar often brings to mind dreamy landscapes, graceful pagodas, and tireless fishermen. Beyond the touristic clichés, however, the nation is a wonderful source of precious gemstones such as jade, sapphires, rubies, and even pearls. It is in this ancestral and rich setting that Elke Berr’s new adventure takes place.

Dharma: Ring in 18K pink gold (7.53g), set with a 3.03-ct natural vivid pink Burmese spinel, surrounded by pink sapphires (1.03cts) and white diamonds (0.39ct).

One of Burma’s most famous mining areas is Mogok, not widely open to visitors. Among the lucky few to be granted access to this mythical mine is Elke Berr. Inspired by the this region and its treasures, the designer chose Mogok as the name of her new collection.

Shimmering, dazzling, elegant, unique, and one-of-a-kind pieces—Bagan, Dharma, Himalaya, and Lotus—mix vibrant natural gemstones, such as a royal-blue sapphire or a hot pink spinel, with diamonds. All mounted in original and stylish gold settings, these lovely pieces will delight the world’s most discerning and sophisticated women while offering them a timeless investment.

Lotus: Ring in 18K white gold (6.89g), set with a 5.42-ct natural vivid orangy-red Burmese spinel and four round white diamonds (0.20ct), surrounded by diamonds (0.86ct).

Much more than mere jewellery, each ring evokes Elke’s incredible experiences and stories of her travels to Mogok.

The new collections were presented at the Four Seasons’ Hotel des Bergues in Geneva in October 2014 to an enthusiastic audience during the prestigious Forex event accompanied by a Versace Fashion Show.
