Jan Van Eyck
Inspired by and named after the remarkable Flemish painter Jan Van Eyck, Van Eyck values craftsmanship and inspired design above all else. Considered as one of the most significant artists of the fifteenth Century, Van Eyck’s defining approach to oil painting inspired and changed the way other artists painted over the next one hundred years. Van Eyck painted jewelry and precious stones that reflected light in a manner, which almost compels one to touch them. He was able to refine the existing techniques to such an extent that he achieved remarkably life-like images.
Als Ik Kan
Van Eyck’s personal motto, “ALS IK KAN” meaning “As I Can” and declaring that this is the best he could do, is one of the first and the most unique signatures in art history. Van Eyck is a name that symbolizes a blend of art and jewelry, a name with a strong European heritage and enduring legacy.
Antwerp has been one of the most illustrious and essential diamond capitals since the sixteenth century, a crossroad for most of the world’s rough diamonds. Even today, Antwerp retains this global position, cutting the rarest diamonds in the world with the legendary expertise that has been passed down through the generations.
