Gold jewelry collection inspired by Hungarian folk art

The jewel collection Tulip uses elements of the rich and diversified new-style Hungarian folk art created at the turn of the 18th and 19th century. It was the time when the national consciousness flourished in the Hungarian society and was the strongest in our history.
 Sketching, design and ornament of the jewels originate from that age.

Spectacular women’s and men’s gold jewelry: pendants, earrings, rings, bracelets

Our philosophy; re-imagining of Hungarian design trend

The birth of the jewel collection Tulip started with engagement jewellery.
We looked at female engagement rings and double wedding rings as one whole, from a designer’s perspective.

The silhouettes of the items carry the designs of architectural stonemasonry, furniture and carpentry, and the used ornaments show the rich embroidery of the most popular piece of attire of the new style traditional dresses, the tawdry coat; also, by relation of the technique, the woodworker craftsmanship’s values.

In our works we mostly use the tulip motive. In shape, and in surface decoration, it appears regularly on our items. Another commonly used pattern is the heart, which, along with the tulip, represents love in Hungarian traditional art. The collection’s main metal is gold.

Magyar motívum

Among noble metals, gold is the best to use when we want to make picturesque, plastic shapes. 
Our items are made with two variations of gold alloy, white and red; and also, given the symbolic value of marital jewellery, colourless or brown gemstones.

These combinations of materials give an old, archaic character to the collection. While designing this family of jewels our consideration was to use old, traditional artificer techniques, combined with modern solutions. The design of the forms was sketched only by hand then we used silver trial pieces to find out thickness and proportions – sometimes working in separate steps.

Our most commonly used technique is shaping the moulds out of wax. The best thing about wax is that it could be used for casting purposes right away. The final shaping of the forms is carried out by traditional handcrafting methods. 
Our items are of relatively difficult shapes, most jewels in this collection are made up of multiple parts; putting them together demands accurate and high level internship. Making them this way also allows us the use of multiple coloured alloys within one item. After making the forms without flaws comes the decoration, the engraving and lastly, socketing the precious stones.

Some outstanding pieces of the Jewelry Collection

The decoration is made by century-old artisan techniques such professional methods that make each and every item unique. This is what makes our jewellery attractive for our customers; each piece can be personal, thanks to its design, colour scheme and decoration.

We have won the ’Masterpiece of Hungarian Craft’ prize in 2012 and In 2016 we won the Hungarian Quality Product Award.

After long preparations and the compilation of the application materials, Affianced Jewelry submitted its material to the Hungarian Product Grand Prix in the spring of 2016, which is the state recognition honoring Hungary's most prestigious products, and by successfully participating, we became richer with a wonderful prize.

The outstanding publication of our competition is this art album, which, in addition to our Tulip jewelry creations, also presents the design, the conditions of production, and the research work leading to the creation of the collection. The album presenting the jewelry was almost 200 pages long, in which countless wedding rings, engagement rings and occasional jewelry are presented with brief descriptions. In practice, most of our work so far appears in the publication.
