Fine jewellery designer
Orit Elhanati combines a Nordic lightness with the warmth of her Middle Eastern heritage in each of her designs. Working in 18k yellow gold, each piece is handmade in her Copenhagen studio.
Her texture-rich and organic forms are created in moments of pure intuition; she hand-works the gold as her miniature sculptures take shape. The touch of the human hand is evident in every piece, each having its own unique idiosyncrasies.
The designer has built a loyal following, with her pieces made to be collected and layered, as Orit herself wears them. Combining pieces from different collections to create enchanting combinations that are truly unique to the individual wearer. We found that our first Elhanati piece, only leads to dreams of the next!
Her designs are studded with the highest quality diamonds, rubies, emeralds, spinels and sapphires which give a flash of brightness to her forms. For Orit, Opals are amongst the most fascinating of stones, their changeling nature as they respond to light and warmth, their response to touch, is almost emotional, mirroring the aura of the wearer. Opals possess an almost feminine character that fascinates the designer.
Strong childhood memories of summers spent in Tel Aviv, with her grandmother and her friends drinking tea on the porch dripping in gold jewellery, has manifested itself as the foundation for Orit Elhanati’s creations. Her jewellery is made to be passed on through generations, becoming a part of your story. Each piece has its own journey, and every stone is sourced carefully from around the world, using only ethical precious stones and recycled gold.
