Designer made 18K gold jewellery in a timeless yet modern style.

About ZahavGold by Moshe Beigel

''I love designing and making jewellery;
 starting with just a kindly germ of an idea,making a rotten first drawing but slowly and surely refining the sketchy image into a final design,and then,whether struggling directly in gold,or messing around with the tricky 3D modelling program which I ''love to hate’’,there is nothing better than the thrill on receiving the jewel back from the diamond setter's bench or from the gold polisher and to finally hold it in my hand and view the new piece in all its glory,ready to wear and to be sent on its journey to the waiting client.''

    One of my first memories as a child was watching my father on a Sunday

morning carefully picking out tiny diamonds out of blue wax-paper ‘brifka’  envelopes  on the long desk in my bedroom and then shuffling around on his knees as he searched for the stones that had flown out of his metal tweezers   and had landed on the beige carpet which he rhythmically tapped with the flat of his hand to try and make the sparkling diamonds jump out of the carpet pile  so that he could find them again. 

 I grew up surrounded by jewellery and great design, and was lucky enough to study at the Sir John Cass School of Art & Design followed by a two year apprenticeship with a master goldsmith in an old style jewellery workshop in London’s Hatton Garden. Following my move to Israel I opened one of the first designer/goldsmith shops in Jerusalem - Macassar Jewels at the historic Rechavia Windmill which served local customers and clients from around the world for over twenty years.

I believe that jewellery design has to be contemporary but also timeless,

and needs to be crafted to last and last; my jewellery is never light-weight or just ordinary, and with my classic goldsmith training I ensure that every elegant jewel leaving my workshop is a beautiful, wearable piece of art designed to give pleasure and happy memories for years to come.
