I Create Jewellery That Lets You Wear Pieces Of Earth
How can a gemstone impersonate a natural scenery so well? may be not a coincidence after all..?
I like the idea of owning jewelry that isn’t mass produced. Generally you don’t “need” jewelry, you wear jewelry because you think it makes you feel unique, you build an emotion with your jewelry and depend on them to personalize your look. But how can that be achieved if your piece is worn by thousands of people that own the exact piece you do? The idea of Analogie is that every piece has a unique story behind it. Its never just a piece of jewelry, its a memory that is unique to you, and only you.
Analogie’s latest collection is inspired by unworldly places on planet Earth. The idea is bringing those places into a piece of jewelry that you can own, which is normally not possible. Let’s say you got to Turkey, at the Pamukkale hot springs, you bathe, you take pictures, you play games, but that’s really all there is to be done. Analogie takes it a step ahead to give you the opportunity to own a wearable version of it.

The Dongchuan red lands in China have soils highly rich in minerals, particularly copper, the land turns into picturesque red valleys before new crops are planted
The Gem-ini of the Dongchuan lands is the gemstone Unakite
It has quite a unique distribution of colors that is just as segmented as the Dongchuan fields

Just like Auroras, Fluorite the gem has an exquisite natural display of colors and has been dubbed “The most colorful mineral in the world”
Fluorite nicely mimics the Aurora through the diffused intermingling bands of colors throughout the gem
Fluorite is the gemstone that the term ‘Fluorescent’ was named after
Pamukkale is a series of steps of hot springs that have bubbled up from the ground
Pammukkale is situated in Turkey and it translates into “Cotton Castle”. The frothy-looking limestone steps vary in depth creating the varying intensities of sky-blue. Photo by Antoine Taveneaux
The selected gemstone for this mesmerising scenery is Larimar
It traces the organic white contours of the limestone gracefully while enclosing the beautiful blue gradients of the pools

Rhodochrosite comes to accentuate those concentric ripples
The gem has a unique pattern that captures the delicate arcs of salted sands
