Exquisite Opulence

Lapis Lazuli Box

It’s the retelling of your stories that McCarty decorative pieces or ‘objet’, truly create a stage for, the details they endeavour to include, the effortless beauty that their craftsmen exhibit and the curiosity these totally unique creations give way to, when they start the conversation when adorning your home. 

Working with challenging, delicate and rare metals is an part of daily routine like in the production of this 18ct gold, lapis lazuli veneer box, to create a visually impactful piece. But as with any commission, McCarty wanted to further the personalisation for the client. The filigree design in gold replicates an Astrolabe, an astrological instrument, embellished with 70 carats of brilliant cut diamonds and 1.6kgs of gold. The front panel features a hand engraving of its home. London’s iconic landmarks are exquisitely etched onto the 18ct gold panel. 

So rather than a simply decorative box, McCarty furnished the client with a piece that contained hidden messages truly personal to them – not noticeable at first glance. McCarty excels in producing the truly bespoke, will accept any brief and strive to delight the client with the outcome.

The dimensions of the box are 300mm x 220mm x 145mm.
