L’Essayeur

L’Essayeur is a luxury avant-garde jewellery brand founded in London. The brand inherits the genes of science and art from its founders, Chengxi Wang and Jamie Lou, who respectively graduated from University of Oxford and University of the Arts London. When the spirit of scientific revolution meets bold artistic expression, L’Essayeur is more than a collection of precious metals and gems, but a wearable attitude of authenticity, rebellion and transformation.

To this purpose, each jewel is designed to tell stories of historical rebels. Our signature first collection centers on Galileo Galilei, who, in the face of imprisonment, unshakably defended his heliocentric theory and shook the center of the universe.

The brand name, L’Essayeur, was inspired by a book published in by Galileo Galilei in 1623.

The book is considered to be one of the pioneering works of the scientific method in Renaissance. Renovating the revolutionary spirit of Renaissance, L'Essayeur jewellery challenges traditions from the design process to the moment you embed our jewellery into who you are. Every piece of L’Essayeur jewellery is an experiment to disrupt the current fashion system. Instead of industrial mass production, Jamie and Chengxi traveled around Italy to seek prominent artisans for co-creation jewellery projects.

For example, L’Essayeur collaborates with contemporary sculptor Leonardo Bossio to challenge the borders between sculpture and jewellery. And cooperation with artist and goldsmith Antonella Sicoli is an experiment to restructure time. Each jewel is a unique piece that combines parts of antiques of different time and rearranges them in an innovative way.

At L’Essayeur, where disciplinary borders and orders of time are challenged, it’s impossible not to challenge status quo and who you are. Rebel and bring up reincarnation.

Stage 4 Bond Jewellery & Diamonds

Stage 4 is all about the creation of the piece. Jake who I am sure you all remember hearing about in stages 1,2 & 3 but if you do not I will refresh your memory. Jake is the wonderful gentlemen who wanted to find the perfect ring for his future wife.

After Jake made the decision on what he thought to be the perfect diamond, the people at Bond could now create the piece exactly how Jake had designed it. It would be the exact image.

Bond utilise’s various techniques in their manufacturing. They ensure that the highest quality and precision standards are upheld. Where some pieces are created entirely by hand others are created utilising CAD 3D mouldings and sometimes a mixture of both, these are worked and crafted by Bond’s expert craftsmen.

Jake’s ring will be created against a CAD 3D rendering with a wax mould which will be created initially to ensure perfection. This is then created in platinum before diamonds set in the piece and all finishing and polishing is then carried out.
