Henry Dunay

He was born in 1935 in New Jersey, He was an American goldsmith and jewelry designer, best known for his fine scratched surface technique known as Sabi. Having apprenticed in the workshop of New York City jeweler Rudolph Cacioli at the age of 14, Dunay learned the fine art of creating jewelry. Though starting as an errand boy, he quickly worked his way up to becoming a master model maker and setter at a remarkably young age, impressing Cacioli with the fineness of his work and the refinement of his proportions and curves. Observing that most jewelry in shop windows he peered into followed the same styles and dimensions, he started his own firm in 1956. Taking on work from other manufacturers (including Harry Winston) to support himself initially, Dunay quickly found success and fame after winning the De Beers Diamond International Award, which showered images of his designs around the world.

Faceted Gold

Henry Dunay calls this surface finish technique "faceted". He developed the technique in which he cut each facet of the gold, just as you would cut facets in a gemstone. This technique hardens the gold and makes his pieces much more durable. Dunay's faceted pieces do not wear easily. They remain sharp and hold up to daily wear.

Collateral: These pair of earrings is accompanied by a presentation jewelry box.

Condition: The overall condition of these earrings is excellent. Beside the little normal wear, there is no damage to the gold. This pair has been carefully inspected to guarantee the condition and authenticity.
