The birth of a child is a truly precious and unforgettable moment in one's life. Through them we become parents and for them we become better people. They add value and meaning to our time, our experiences and the world. We love creating childbirth inspired jewellery. With their hidden message they often become richly designed objects, abundant with sentiments and veiled meaning, which we know will become highly valued and cherished pieces.

There has never been such a meeting of two seemingly different forms of art, as the cooperation between Splendor and the Contemporary Ballet of Szeged which premiered in 2013. Following its unexpected success the production and the designers are planning an international tour. The dancers perform the birth of a diamond which is created by the four elements. The different elements emerge through ballet movements and provided the inspiration both the choreography and the jewellery designs.
Orsolya succeeded in repeating her last victory in Dubai.
She has once again won first prize in the international
competition.The hairpin, for which she was awarded
the trophy, was born out of the ballet designs.
It captures a dynamic dance movement. The
ebony base is encased in a platinum and white
gold alloy and embellished with unusual, unique-cut
aquamarines as well as myriads of tiny diamonds.
Apart from Orsolya and Daniel's signature three dimensional
sculpture- like designs, they specialize in creating remarkably
personalized pieces. "We offer an exclusive service through
which we get to know the wearer of our pieces, their
appearance, personality, style, history, relationships
and important symbols through which we are able
design and craft not only astonishingly beautiful
pieces, but also truly tailor-made, personalized objects.
We have been creating wide range of wedding jewelry.
We enjoy planning and designing together with couples,
which can take between 1-2 hours. We believe it is
important that our clients are fully informed about
their options so they can make educated decisions
when it comes to their own personal symbols of their love.
We are there to hold their hands on this journey. The bliss
that the finished creations bring, is our greatest award of all.
“ We love our job as we are greatly inspired by
the joy our creations bring. It is wonderful to play
a role in someone else's happiness, that the fruit
of our labour will become a cherished treasure for
its owner. Lasting personal symbols of personalities,
relationships, joy and love.”

As we usually design and craft unique, personalised jewellery pieces a commission from the Hungarian National Bank to create a commemorative coin took us by surprise. We greatly enjoy challenges and as this was wholly foreign territory, it proved to be quite a great challenge.
The theme we chose was a commemorative coin for the 25th anniversary of the Hungarian Maltese Charity Service as it is a cause rich in love and positive energy, which made the commission even more of an honour. It was a wonderful task. We consulted the Maltese Hungarian Charity Service, the Hungarian Mint Ltd. and the experts delegated by the Hungarian National Bank. Through this process we took small steps towards the commemorative coin of 2000 HUF face value which also functions as currency. The coordination process was long and challenging. We came many obstacles and often had to draw strength from our love of challenges, passion for our craft and creating as well as our eagerness to learn. As time progressed we were glad to see that something meaningful and beautiful was coming to life. While we are known for our sculpture-like, organic designs that we move in all dimensions of space, we were quite limited by the geometric symbolism inherent to the theme of the project. However, in the end we feel we were able to create a beautiful and intriguing design.
After consulting with the numismatists from the Hungarian National Bank, archaeologists, sculptors, art historians and the engravers and experts from the Hungarian Mint Ltd, we got to work. We first created our designs on computer and then used a milling machine, created the base according to the strict minting criteria. We subsequently used hand carved the design in plaster.
After much fine-tuning we arrived at the sample which the Mint minimized and carved onto the steel coin dies. The Hungarian Maltese Charity Service held its Reception Day where the Maltese commemorative coin was presented in great ceremony. There at last we could finally catch a glipse at the fruit of our labour, and admire how our design looked like in metal form. As in the case of jewellery the metal form far exceeded our expectations. We eagerly awaited the ceremony where we were handed complimentary coins by Dr. Ferenc Gerhardt, the Vice-President of the National Bank, in a crossfire of cameras.
We would like to thank all those who helped with the project. The thematic experts and our friends, Gábor Turiák, Richárd Káldi, Dávid Tauer as well as the Splendor-Jewellery team!
