Gimel is Karouru Kay Akihara's Japanese studio and is renowned for its fastidious craftsmanship utilising exquisite and rare jewels in an array of fine jewellery pieces, ranging from elegantly simple settings to gorgeously realised wonders.
Many Gimel pieces take the form of flora and fauna of Japan, like turtles, crabs, and leaves. The natural beauty of Japan is a source of inspiration for Kaora and the small team of artisans of the Gimel Jewelry House. The soul of Kaoru is completely dissolved in nature and ancient traditions.
The workshop of the Gimel Jewelry House is located on the top of Mount Rokkō, next to the city of Kobe, the capital of Hyogo Prefecture and is characterized by extraordinary beauty. Moreover, this harmony of nature has had a significant impact on the formation of the inner world of Kaoru and the corresponding images of jewelry masterpieces that she has created.
