Meet Lucas Ruppli

Meet Furrer Jacot Designer Lucas Ruppli - Michael C. Fina

For nearly 20 years, Lucas Ruppli has been Chief of the Design Department at FURRER JACOT in Switzerland, overseeing the development of outstanding luxury partner jewelry.

Lucas Ruppli was born in Schaffhausen, a small town famous in Europe for its gold and silversmith ateliers. This influence, combined with his childhood passion for collecting gemstones, motivated him to become a goldsmith. As the Chief of the Design Department at Furrer Jacot, Switzerland, he is also responsible for the goldsmith students within the company. Mr. Ruppli is constantly teaching willing young apprentices the art of craftmanship and manufacturing of jewelry. In addition, he is a consultant at a technical college for future goldsmiths. In 2000, Mr. Ruppli reached the final of the Diamonds International Awards and in 2004 he was one of the winners of the renowned Diamonds International Awards.

His sources of inspiration are based in so many different fields such as nature, architecture, the society or industrial design. The father of two personally prefers to explain the design idea for each individual as: “I deeply care about creating objects that have shapes and forms and relationships which derive from nature, architecture, society at large or from the mechanical industry. Looking at technical objects, I am interested about the details and on how they are integrated in the whole object.”

The designer also needs peace of mind, physical, mental and emotional well-being in order to be able to create. But the spark itself emerges from something deeper, something that triggers a chain of thoughts that will lead to something as significant as a wedding band. “I combine things that might not fit together,” he says in a calm and reserved voice, “for example, how can I make a wedding ring out of a pigeon that has been run over?” It may sound provocative on the surface, but it makes sense, more often, it may be one of the fundamental laws of creativity. The designer needs the mental tension, the dissonance that seeks a resolution in a finished product.

When a happy couple purchases wedding bands designed by him, then the tension is present as well as the resolution; certainly an excellent prospect for a healthy and harmonious marriage.

A Renaissance Romance

Temple St. Clair's Bridal Collection at Michael C. Fina

“What I love most about Temple St. Clair is that each piece tells a story, whether about history, nature, astrology, or humanity. When you purchase a piece of jewelry from Michael C. Fina, it is helping you create a special moment in your own history.  What better way to commemorate a moment than with a piece that not only conveys beauty, but also deep meaning?”

~Steven Fina

Temple St. Clair’s romantic designs were introduced at Michael C. Fina in February of 2011.  Since then, her distinctive pieces have marked the special moments in the lives of many of our brides and couples.  Temple’s designs are for the woman who embraces the modern world, but who still has a true passion and appreciation for the art, culture, and history of our ancient one.

Temple St. Clair‘s Bridal Collection can be found exclusively in Manhattan at Michael C. Fina.
