1975 Collection

Evert Hofacker established CADEAUX in Germany in 1975. As a sculptor and goldsmith he combined art and method to create a jewelry identity that captured the spirit of an era. He invented the 2-prong setting for diamonds to give CADEAUX unmistakable character. In 1977 he received a patent for his invention from Deutsches Patentamt, Patentschrift 2531724, and the sole right to his new technique, the innovative way of inserting diamonds in a solid gold band and securing them with 2 elongated prongs. This setting is safe and raises the lustre of the diamonds. It remains a different way of setting diamonds and underscores the originality of CADEAUX.


Bangle JAZZ II

Bangle Jazz II exemplifies the fusion of art, design and method to create a single jewelry identity. Jazz II captures the spirit of the 1970s prevalent in free-form jazz. CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong setting secures and enhances the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds on 2 free-flowing gold bands, giving an unmistakable identity to an asymmetrical free-form that combines with the underlying solidity of an 18 Karat white gold bangle. An 18 Karat gold clasp with a double safety feature provides for safe and easy wearing.


Ring FLAMENCO

Ring Flamenco features CADEAUX JEWELRY’S original single identity on a reduced scale adapted to a finger, blending creativity and methodology with competence and capturing the free-form spirit prevalent in the 1970s. CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong setting uses laterally attached 18 karat white gold prongs to secure and enhance the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds on two free-flowing intertwined 18 Karat white gold bands, evocative of the flow of body and fabric in the Flamenco dance.


Bangle JAZZ I

Bangle Jazz I is a lighter version of CADEAUX’ original single identity bangle that blends creativity and methodology with competence and captures the 1970s free-form spirit prevalent in jazz fusion music. CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong setting uses 18 karat white gold prongs to secure and enhance the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds on a single free-flowing 18 Karat rose gold band, lending an unmistakable identity to an asymmetrical free-form that synthesises with the underlying solidity of an 18 Karat rose gold bangle. An 18 Karat gold clasp with a double safety feature provides for safe and easy wearing.


Earpieces JAZZ I Small

Earpieces Jazz I Small are a minimised version of CADEAUX JEWELRY’S original Jazz earpieces. Their design blends creativity and methodology with the 1970s free-form spirit prevalent in jazz fusion. CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong setting uses 18 karat white gold prongs to secure and enhance the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds on a curled free-flowing 18 Karat white gold band, lending an unmistakable identity to this asymmetrical free-form. The earpieces are made as studs and are suitable for pierced earlobes.


Ring BOLERO

Ring Bolero portrays CADEAUX’ original single identity in a combination of modernistic forms, characterised by a large open circle as a ring head. CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong settings encompass the ring head using laterally attached 18 karat white gold prongs to secure and enhance the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds. The Circle represents a continuous form evocative of the recurring musical theme in Maurice Ravel’s Bolero.


Edition: Ring BOLERO ELEPHANT-OPIUM-WEIGHT

Ring Bolero with its large open circle lends itself perfectly to the addition of a gemstone or a miniaturised sculpture inside the open ring head. In this Ring Bolero Opium-Weight Edition, a small opium-weight in the form of an Elephant with Howdah made of solid Au 999 Fine-Gold and weighing approximately 15g, cast from an original opium-weight from the Golden Triangle, provides a unique variety for collectors. CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong setting that uses laterally attached 18 karat white gold prongs to secure and enhance the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds, provides CADEAUX’ original identity.


Edition: Necklace Soul

Unique necklace with an Ametrine (natural combination of Amethyst and Citrine), carved by the late Swiss-Australian artist Bruno Moser, and set in 18 Karat gold with diamonds, which are set by CADEAUX’ patented 2-prong setting that uses laterally attached 18 Karat white gold prongs to secure and enhance the lustre of brilliant-cut diamonds and provides CADEAUX’ original identity. Bruno began carving gems into wonderful sculptures in the 1970s and held many exhibitions in Asia and all over the world. His sculptures are one-of-a-kind and cannot be copied.  The Ametrine in this piece was acquired by CADEAUX with a number of unique Bruno Moser sculptures that were turned into exclusive jewelry.
