Original sketch of the Nephertiti from the Laykin Archive circa 1935
Evoking the 1930's Art Deco interpretation of ancient Egyptian themes; this strong ring of sultry proportions and modernistic presence establishes it's presenter as a woman of conviction. Nephertiti was designed at the Laykin et Cie attelier on Sunset Blvd in 1935 and originally featured choices of opaque Onyx, Lapis or Malachite.
Our 2017 reinterpretation of this stylistic gem ensconces gorgeous hand cut and polished gems to feature their stunning translucence devoid of the complexities created by facets. These stones forcefully challenge the status quo with a bold statement of purity and resolution. Laykin et Cie is pleased to present Nephertiti in Blue or Brown Topaz, Yellow Citrine, Pink or Green Tourmaline, or Amethyst set in 18KT yellow gold.
