Jewellery and fine watchmaking is my passion. I am not an expert though, just an inquisitive person with a subjective view. I get fascinated by the details, the harmonies, the sharp balances, the good taste and manners and the timeless work of craftsmen.
I had the opportunity of working with my beloved pink diamonds and South Sea pearls in Sydney, Australia and I found myself wanting to understand even more. Completing a certified diamond grader course in Antwerp my hunger to gain deeper understanding increased. By day I do projects as a marketing manager, but I walk with the loupe in my pocket.
Magnification makes the picture clearer. When you see the scratches, failures and inclusions you appreciate more the masterpieces close to perfection.
And perfection… I believe it is the driving force that makes the impossible achievable. Just as Dalí said it once: “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”
The idea of starting this blog had buzzed in my mind for a long time, fuelled by the intention to connect with people with similar desires. While living in the Middle East I was asked by a magazine to guide their readers into Baselworld and share my views on the topic. Having enjoyed this brief immensely, the decision to launch loupiosity.com with fellow partners finally ripened.
