Henry Dunay has been a jeweler since the age of 14. His beloved 'faceted" jewelry, designed with the simplicity and spirituality of Eastern cultures in mind, has a hammered effect achieved with special tools invented and made by Dunay himself. Using these specialized tools, Dunay cuts each surface facet, as though fashioning a gemstone. Unlike platinum, gold must be persuaded through intensive workmanship to remain in its new form, and Dunay's technique hardens the gold, reinforcing its durability.
