SHIBUMI GALLERY presents MODERN CLASSICS, a show of diamond and diamond alternative jewelry with an artful twist. Diamonds are among nature’s most beautiful and precious creations. Formed 100 miles below the earth’s surface, diamonds are made with intense pressure and heat from a single element: carbon. Diamonds have been considered symbols of longevity for centuries, used in wedding jewelry and for anniversaries. The breadth of choices has expanded to include more colors, diamonds with included markings, innovative cuts, and even raw diamonds from industrial purposes. Features that were formerly considered imperfections are now viewed as unique inclusions. The selection and styles are so much more broad and exciting.

Modern Classics features ten artists with their contemporary designs, a classic diamond dealer who will share his information about diamonds along side beautiful stationery by Hatguchi Collective for our Valentine’s day show.  Ideal Cut Diamond’s owner will be here from 1-3pm if you are interested in purchasing or looking at brilliant cut diamonds set in his classic Martini setting or purchasing to use in another designers setting. Please join us Saturday February 10th from 12pm to 7pm to see the show and celebrate with some Donkey and Goat Sparkling wine.
