“Be a mirror, absorb everything around you and still remain the same.”
- Leonardo Da Vinci
When I was in high school, I frequently read the notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci. One day, I came across a quote
I will always remember. Da Vinci said, “Be a mirror, absorb everything around you and still remain the same.” As an artist, I believe in and can relate to this philosophy. I learn as much as I can about the environment around me but
I still try to remain original, honest and true to my existence.
This ideal was my inspiration for the DavinChi™ Cut. It is a new gemstone cut which has the ability to absorb colors, light or images into the gem from its surroundings. This magicalillusion makes the gem change colors when viewed from different angles and different points of view. There is a wonderful depth of field within the gem and
I find it difficult to fix my eyes on just one focal point. The stone has a sense of liveliness, and is seems to be constantly changing in color and texture.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Allow yourself to absorb all the things around you yet still remain the way you are.
