Intro
Grey is conspicuously unobtrusive. Different mindsets are manifested in this colour spectrum: refined understatement in diamond jewellery, or dispassionate sobriety and rationality in Art Deco jewellery or in pieces designed in the tradition of the Bauhaus.

Like no other colour, grey represents the modern era, whose most characteristic materials, i.e. concrete and steel, are also grey. In particular contemporary jewellery artists have meanwhile turned their attention to this colour spectrum, which is in stark contrast to pink. With its vibrant chromatic depth, the latter immediately demands our attention. In the hue of Tyrian purple, it once demonstrated both secular and ecclesiastical power, and in contemporary fashion, pink has even been used intentionally to shock. Effectively contrasting the jewellery creations on display, this colour will be highlighting them quite „indiscreetly“.
