The stone is the story; it has always been
for Jochen Pohl, a stone sorcerer dedicated to sourcing and crafting the most
precious stones into modern objects of desire. Rubies, sapphires, tourmalines,
diamonds, tanzanites, moonstones, chrysoberyls, and tsavorites among others, JochenPohl has his fair share of finds – but it wasn’t easy, for only the rarest and
most flawless stones could satisfy. These are the specials, the crown jewels of
the Jochen Pohl family.
That is the real story.
A stone (read: tanzanite) so rare that it
comes from only one place in the entire world. But for Jochen Pohl, it goes
beyond that, presenting gemstones in the purest form where impurities in
gemstones are burnt away meticulously to bring out the truest colour of the
stone. This is something only the most skillful cutters are able to achieve.
Take a deep breath for what you are about
to see is a beauty beyond measure, a beauty that has literally stood the test
of time. An image of an aristocratic lady in her majestic courtyard comes to
mind, the train of her dress swaying to the rhythm of the breeze. And there we
see it. An old European-mined rose-cut diamond – a cut dating back to the 17th
century – encased in a shimmering white gold ring. The polished metal blending
perfectly against her skin. A calm and raw multi-faceted 5-carat diamond in all
This is what we see – an understated high
luxury, so luxurious that only you can feel its aura for yourself.
The cream of the crop, as they say. Like a
stone speaking to you, so intimate and dear to you. Little did we know that the
stone sorcerer, Jochen Pohl himself, shares this exact intimacy even before a
piece of jewellery is made.
Each stone is handpicked like an orphan coming
home for the first time. Behind the scenes, a covenant between jeweller,
cutter, and stone is conceived, blossoming from the very mines that gave us
these precious stones we now hold dear to our hearts. Each stone, once lost but
now found. Each stone, so different from the next, that you may never find a
similar stone anywhere else in the world. Like a child maturing with age, so
does the stone in value.
While reliable gemstone supply lines
prevail, so does Jochen Pohl. The Earth is his domain and with every stone
acquired, the stone sorcerer sings for a luxurious beauty will be born in his
For the most exquisite gemstone
connoisseurs, this is it – the holy grail of precious stones. It is the idea of
owning a stone that no one else has. It is the possession of a prized obsession,
a quality jewel that is made of gold and gem – the best of both worlds.
So lust while you can but once acquired, it
is forever yours.
