Petra Class

"Creating jewelry is like writing music. On a creative day, it will be improvisational, while other times the elements need to be arranged and rearranged to form the right harmony or dissonance. I try to listen to the inner quality of each element to create a composition that does it justice."

In her twenty-five years of working as jeweler, Petra Class has developed a language of composition and materials that communicates her unique sensibilities and esthetic. Initially scared away by the perfection of highly polished cut diamonds, Class was attracted to the character of uncut natural stones and their understated, yet seductive, quality. The contrast of the rough, uncut stones with the preciousness of gold and polished diamonds, and the repetition of shapes within each composition, became key components of Class's vocabulary. Also key is the creation of Class's beautiful one-of-a-kind, hand-formed bezels, surrounding each stone with the fluidity of gold.

Artful Home advisor Michael Monroe states, "Petra Class's extraordinary combination of rough diamonds and highly faceted diamonds are a unique contrast of "before" and "after," the rough and the refined."
