In April 2015, cutting-edge fashion institution, Alchemist unveiled its fine jewelry concept shop in the Miami Design District’s new luxury development.
Renowned architect Rene Gonzalez collaborated on his third concept with Alchemist, creating a jewel box space.
Alchemist is joining prestigious jewelers including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bvlgari, and Harry Winston.
The shop is situated between Piaget and Audemar Piguet in the Sou Fujimoto designed Palm Court.
Miami’s answer to the Place Vendome, the new shopping mecca perhaps surpasses the famed Parisian district.
From ancient inspiration to modern innovation; the featured designers at Alchemist are creating the new world of fine jewelry available exclusively in Miami.
Custom onyx vitrines house jewels from Lydia Courteille, Garrard, Abraxas Rex, Stephen Webster, Gaydamak, Fernando Jorge, Lyn Ban, Luis Morais, and Wilfredo Rosado. In addition, there are fine bespoke timepieces by Bamford Watch Department.
Dedicated solely to fine jewelry, the shop is focus on the rare beauty of wearable art.
The artisanal designs come from far corners of the world from Beirut to Venice and each representing a sense of unique craftsmanship, handmade features, and commissioned bespoke work.
The rose gold mirror façade of the shop summons like a gem wedged in between stones. Solid granite walls transition like a gradient, evoking the core of the earth, and the origin of Alchemist’s precious gems.
Equally exciting is the launch of Alchemist’s private label jewelry collection – old world craftsmanship merged with new world design. Collaborative jewelry projects is an ongoing feature at the concept shop. Model/stylist Erin Wasson has crated a capsule of fine and functional pieces for the launch.
Alchemist founders Roma and Erika Cohen said of the Miami Design District space: “Over the years we have become deeply passionate about discovering new talent and unique craftsmanship in fine jewels. We’re excited to present these special houses within the Alchemist spirit.”
