By taking the time to have an honest conversation with ourselves about what we love to wear every day, we learn to appreciate the benefit of having one item instead of ten.

Moritz Glik

Moritz Glik began his creative path with marketing, advertising, and shoe design in his home of Belo Horizonte, Brazil before seeking to find his identity in New York City. Upon arrival in 1991, Glik became mesmerized by gemstones and precious materials and eventually fell in love with jewelry design. As a master bench jeweler, Glik has traveled extensively to refresh and define his ideas of aesthetics and beauty to add to each unique masterpiece.

Moritz’s work is best known for its signature Kaleidoscope Shaker, which is the core of each piece he creates.  The idea came by accident, when Moritz found himself mesmerized by the transparent lucite boxes in which he houses all of his precious stones.  One, which was filled with diamonds, became his obsession; he was captivated by the movement and textures the diamonds formed inside the box, especially when he moved the box, and wanted to recreate this playful dance and discovery for his clients.  Each Kaleidoscope Shaker is handcrafted from crystal sapphire and is filled with fragments of precious stones that come to life with each movement of the wearer.

The ethos of Moritz’s eponymous line is to design unique fine jewelry using only the finest, highest-quality materials.  Each piece is meant to be wearable yet stand out. Sustainability is a deliberate part of the design process, albeit newer to the company’s ethos.  While Glik has always used gold that he’s upcycled in-house, Vogue Italia’s Protagonist initiative was the push he needed to bring low environmental impact to the top of the company’s priorities.

"Sustainability is a mindset that should be intrinsic to our everyday lifestyle. At the same time, it's a day to day battle against the waste that surrounds our modern way of living. It's a challenge to be sustainable in a world that stimulates so much consumerism and puts profit above most things. I truly believe we can change that, starting inside our homes, in our daily routines, simply thinking about the impact that our behavior has on the planet." - Moritz Glik, Founder
