The ROCKSTARS present works that revolve around the eternal material in jewellery: They are declarations of love, experimental snapshots or rebellious works all about gemstones. The ROCKSTARS will be guests at SCHÜTT until 13 February 2021, parallel to the travelling exhibition "Fe, Steel Prize 2020 Wismar, Hasselt, Lappeenranta - three countries, three cities, three schools" at the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum. It comes as no surprise that SCHÜTT invited the university from Idar-Oberstein on the occasion of its 130th anniversary; the most important Pforzheim stone trading company is closely associated with Idar-Oberstein. For decades, SCHÜT had an Idar-Oberstein branch that ensured a steady flow of the best gems to Pforzheim.
At the Idar-Oberstein Campus, newcomers to the jewellery scene have dedicated themselves body and soul to the intensive study of gemstones. Idar-Oberstein, at the same time a world trade centre for gemstones of all kinds and a place of study in absolute seclusion, is the rehearsal room for the students, where they break up existing structures and develop progressive designs. As ROCKSTARS, students and alumni appear with contemporary pieces of jewellery that not only show the material gemstone in unexpected and unconventional applications, but at the same time redefine elements of a centuries-old gemstone aesthetic and are thus socially positioned.
