Qiviuk Boutiques Welcomes H.R.H. Prince Dimitri's Rare Musk Ox Fine Jewelry Collection to Lake Louise
Dimitri’s love of jewelry dates from his childhood and unique heritage of European Royalty closely tied together in an era of extreme opulence, beauty and culture.
He began designing jewelry in 1999, with a collection sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barney’s New York. In his own jewelry creations he has been able to realize his own vision, which luxuriates in his love of gemstones; the juxtaposition of unusual materials such as the Muskox Horn; imaginative forms and paying attention to color, detail and craftsmanship.
"I wanted the musk ox horn we are using to be mixed with harmonious bright fresh colors that convey a feeling of happiness and elegance. I chose the circle because it is one of the most feminine and timeless shapes and also the protective formation of the animal; adorning it with the diamond and ruby centers mounted in a figure 8 mounting for good luck; seeking for a collection that has fresh, bold, sophisticated and young feeling."- PRINCE DIMITRI
MUSKOX HORN & GEMS
The pre-historical Muskox holds a prominent set of horns that allows the challenging males to engage in the fiercest head to head battles.
The base is formed by a multi-layer of bone and horn that creates a beautiful and unique marble look well-featured in our jewelry.
The Inuit hunters, with whom we have developed a close relationship, select the most precious trophies among their subsistence hunts, to provide this rare material to H.R.H.’s craftsman in New York−where an extensive and highly-advanced conversion process takes place to make this into a gem-quality material. We then accent them with the highest grades of Canadian GIA Certified Diamonds, rubies and other precious stones.
