○ The REMBRANDT Collection ○
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669) was a Dutch painter and printmaker, and is generally considered to be the greatest painter in the period that historians call the Dutch Golden Age. Rembrandt established himself as a portrait painter early in life, breaking away in style from the rigid formality which was traditional, and portraying his subjects with a deep compassion. In his time he taught many of the great painters of the day but his greatest creative triumphs are his self-portraits, those of his contemporaries and his dramatic interpretations of Biblical scenes.
This official collection, licensed by the Rijks Museum, offers a pendant, earrings, ring and bracelet inspired by Rembrandt’s Masterpieces. Amber, garnet and freshwater pearl set in goldplated silver have been used to echo the warm, rich tones Rembrandt used in many of his most famous paintings.

The Jewish Bride by Rembrandt 1667
The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
What a coarse rugged Way of Painting's here,
Stroaks upon Stroaks, Dabbs upon Dabbs appear.
The Work you' d think was huddled up in haste,
But mark how truly ev'ry Colour's placed,
With such Oeconomy in such a sort,
That they each mutualiy support.
Rembrant! thy Pencil plays a subtil Part
This Roughness is contriv'd to hide thy Art.
John Eisum 1700
