JAR...and Mrs Lily Safra: The movie!


"As a major patron of the arts and a collector in many fields, Mrs Lily Safra was naturally drawn to the work of JAR, considered by many as one of "the" jewelry artists of our time. Their creative friendship, based on a shared aesthetic sensitivity and sense of perfection, began in 1981. Using materials as diverse as white and colored diamonds, natural pearls, emeralds, sapphires and rubies, combined in the unique JAR style with tourmalines, garnets, colored sapphires, amethysts and rubellites, Joel Rosenthal explored color and form to create unique and extraordinary jewels for Mrs Lily Safra. The imaginative design and quality of craftsmanship makes each piece a true work of art, the result of the special collaboration between a collector and a designer who were united in their search for the very best."
