Rivka Nahmias @ the Pop-Up

The youd is the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Yet, Rivka Nahmias has used her artistic  eye to blend beauty and harmony in a her first jewelry collection  where she has set the youd as a universal talisman rather than just a religious symbol.

The Eye of Jewelry Pop Up Store in Geneva located at the Grand Kempinski Hotel, Quai du Montblanc 19. Open Wednesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday from 2.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. and on appointment. 

For the past 20 years, Rivka Valerie Nahmias has been a beauty journalist based in Paris who sometimes got to write about high-jewelry collections. She loved her job up until two years ago, when she decided to re-orient her career towards her jewelr passion and lauched Rivka Nahmias Jewelry in January 2015.

Inspired by the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the Youd, Rivka managed to transform the religious symbol into a jewelry icon.

After an intense program at the Academie des Métiers D’art in Paris – under the supervision of the jeweler Marc Lauer- she decided to use her artistic  eye to blend beauty and harmony in a her first jewelry collection where she has set the youd as a universal talisman rather than just a religious symbol.

Since Rivka works in her own workshop in Paris, all of the pieces are hand-made and embellished with delicately glistening genuine gemstones and set in rich handcrafted satin finishes for a one-of-a-kind look and feel.

A large selection of pieces are available at The Eye of Jewelry Pop Up Store in Geneva located at the Grand Kempinski Hotel, Quai du Montblanc 19. Open Wednesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday from 2.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. and on appointment.

Sa joaillerie est à la fois traditionnelle et novatrice, à l’écoute de notre univers en perpétuel mouvement. Rivka utilise le youd comme principal source d’inspiration de ses créations. Le youd étant la plus petite lettre de l’alphabet hébraïque, elle fait de ce symbole religieux une icône joaillière.
