Maison Artinian launched a bohemian lifestyle inspired fine jewelry collection called La Bohème, conceived in collaboration with artist Elizabeth Romhild.
“We wanted to create a collaborative jewelry line which reflected the span and depth of our friendship, and our common connection, our shared heritage” said Arto Artinian, the founder of Maison Artinian, adding “…the discovery journey was built on our shared cultural interest in arts and music, of bohemian ideas, so we worked to create a collection which had Elizabeth’s passion and art paired with our Artinian belief for fine workmanship, technique and fine jewelry Savoir-Faire”.Arto Artinian
In celebration of an enduring friendship, Maison Artinian’s La Bohème collection was presented literally paired with piano airs and ballet dances, complimenting the concept of boldened high polish gold, pendants, rings and scintillating diamonds, impressing the invitee Artinian and Romhild friends at the exclusive soiree which took place at the St. Regis Hotel Bangkok.
Elizabeth Romhild, the artist behind the La Bohème collection, spoke to the media about what sparked the collection within her… also shared her sentiments and thoughts with the invitees;
“La Bohème is a celebration of combining art and luxury through the medium of unique fine jewelry for the modern and independent woman who believes art is not a thing, but a way of living. The story behind the collection goes back to my childhood when I fancied by the elegance of my mother playing the piano. I was inspired to transcribe my admiration for the sound of the piano into artistic piano drawings, which have now become a signature in my artwork.
I have been painting for over thirty-three years, from landscapes to seascapes, nudes to animals. But since 1997 I began painting women and sensuality, music and feasts, and my well known whimsical piano keyboard and the ecstatic players have been seen in many of my Joie de Vivre paintings up till today.
Having also tried my hands in sculpturing, visualizing my piano designs as 3D was not hard when I worked with celebrated jewelers Arto and Saro Artinians, for a collaboration. Being an artist I spend most of my time in my Bohemian world, where all my designs are also created. The spirit of La Boheme is within many of my paintings and designs, and being half Armenian it’s also a tribute to the late Charles Aznavour and his all-time well-known song, La Bohème”.Elizabeth Romhild
On the day, Maison Artinian also presented the boutique’s all-time favorite “Everyday Luxury” Happy Collection, as well as the exclusive new high jewelry set pieces made for special gala ocassions.
This maiden collection of La Bohème features 14 one-of-a-kind creations bearing artist Elizabeth Romhild’s signature and Artinian’s skill DNA, consisting of piano inspired atypical earrings, versatile pendants, long poitrine necklace, micropavé finger curling piano rings, and playfully gleaming hand cuffs.
The lyrical La Bohème collection will be available exclusively at Maison Artinian fine jewelry boutique, located at the Author’s Lounge of the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok.
