A Thousand Facets and Vincents Fine Jewelry Present Fire & Forge Jewelry Exhibit

Popular jewelry Instagram and Tumblr A Thousand Facets has announced the debut of its first jewelry show, in partnership with Vincents Fine Jewelry. Dubbed Fire & Forge, the in-store exhibit will prominently feature the works of Loren Gurche, a paleontology student with a passion for opal cutting.

“I’ve been looking for a project with a story, meaning, and heart,” said A Thousand Facets in a press release. “Loren Gurche proved to be the perfect subject.” Over the course of 8 months, Gurche has worked with 14 independent jewelry designers, each selected by A Thousand Facets, to create a capsule collection featuring his opals. It’s those designs that will be the focus of the upcoming show.

“Opals have such wonderful, phenomenal characteristics, and come in a beautiful array of colors,” said Vincent Perugini, of Vincents Fine Jewelry. “This special collection will dazzle opal lovers and cultivate new fans, too.”

The show will open at Vincents Fine Jewelry’s store in Pelham, N.Y., on November 9. Works will be on display and available for purchase through the end of the year, December 31.
