Curators of the extraordinary, Gerda and Nikolai Monies exist within a small, special world of artists celebrating natural materials in their purest state.
Their latest piece to catch our eye?
A breathtaking malachite necklace featuring twelve slabs of the intricate stone.
Unique in both its striation and presence, this one-of-a-kind necklace is simultaneously geometric and wholly organic.
Often formed by stalactites in deep, underground caverns, the region’s mineral composition imprints its identity into the malachite, creating distinct bands that appear when the formations are sliced. When polished, the luster is silky, with a discretely earthy undertone.
Gerda and Nikolai have taken great pains to maintain the natural beauty of this malachite, celebrating the inherent imperfections and character of its genesis. Each piece is hypnotizing – concentric circles, delicate florets and waves of light green dance across the emerald-hued surfaces.
Laced together by Monies’ signature black leather cord, the stones form a striking statement piece – as captivating to look at as it is to wear.
Born from a collection of equally astonishing jewelry, the variation and combination of natural materials and artistic presentations are what makes Monies as unique as the individuals who wear it.
