High Seas to High Shine: Studio Tour with Hoorsenbuhs

For those not in the know, Hoorsenbuhs is the name of a Dutch trading ship that jewelry designer Robert Keith’s ancestors sailed the seas on in the late 1700s. It’s also the name of Keith’s highly-coveted luxury jewelry line (Rihanna, David Beckham and Kanye are fans), based upon the heritage and tradition of this historical vessel.

Since 2005, Keith and his business partner Kether Parker have built a dynamic unisex collection that draws upon the original Hoorsenbuhs’s nautical elements. Their trademark tri-link was inspired by the ship’s chains, which represent strength and integrity.

The duo is committed to these ideals in their work—all diamonds used must pass the through the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, an international standard set in 2003 to prevent “conflict diamonds” from getting to the market. This superior quality, combined with their bold and iconic design sense, leaves little doubt that each Hoorsenbuhs piece is a modern day heirloom.

We teamed up with our friends over at Love Gold to check out the Santa Monica studio and showroom where Keith and Parker make the magic happen.
