Precious Edibles, a Literary Feast

The ingredients are diamonds, garnets, gold, silver, copper, jade, and sapphires, and they are shaped in the forms of green peas, cauliflower, aubergine, corn, carrots, radishes, and other vegetables.

To celebrate their new line of jewelry, Hemmerle, one of the world's foremost creators of haute joaillerie, is releasing a unique and stunning book. Produced in collaboration with British chef Tamasin Day-Lewis, Delicious Jewels is a feast for the eyes and senses.
" An exploration of the gastronomic splendors of the garden and the beauty of jewels, each page is a visual treat and each recipe an indulgence for the palate."
~~The Hemmerle Family

Like a master chef channeling an innate creativity through a clever combination of flavors, Hemmerle remains true to two basic principles of fine jewellery-making: only the best ingredients and the highest craftsmanship.

In her cookery Tamasin Day-Lewis explores the panoply of tastes, textures, shapes and colors of nature's bounty in much same way that Hemmerle has made nature its muse.
From their symbiotic collaboration is born an original collection of jewels and recipes that are simply exquisite.

The Hemmerle vegetable collection, consisting of eleven brooches and a pair of earrings, is a rich parade of luscious shapes and bold colors, striking in their realistic expression and stirring in their delicacy.
