Remembering Oscar Niemeyer

Legendary Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer passed away, days shy of his 105th birthday, on December 5, 2012. Proving that it’s never too late to start, he collaborated with Brazillian jewelers H. Stern at the age of 103 on a collection that reflected his favored organic and sensual style.

Designs were created from Niemeyer sketchs and inspiration from his buildings, resulting in simple and beautiful pieces that became instant classics. The yellow and white gold with diamond pieces are still available from H. Stern.
