The new edition of our successful Kissed Awake jewellery collection explores Jugendstil. The Viennese variation of art nouveau, Jugendstil was the highly decorative turn-of-the-20th-century artistic style that left a magical imprint on the architecture of the Austrian capital. Found in the archives of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, two designs by Koloman Moser (1868–1918) − one of the leaders and co-founders of the progressive Vienna Secession art movement − are the blueprints for the new collection’s sublime motifs.
Combining historical beauty
and contemporary elegance
Two of Austria’s oldest and most prestigious companies, the Austrian Mint and Dorotheum, have formed a noble alliance in order to breathe new life into the enchanting historical motifs of the former through the peerless jewellery design of the latter. Kissed Awake is an exquisite jewellery collection celebrating the old and the new. It does so by combining the legendary expertise of Dorotheum Jewellers with the traditional excellence of Austrian Mint motif design to produce exquisitely feminine pieces of gold and silver jewellery of understated elegance.
The chance rediscovery of long-forgotten masterpieces in the Austrian Mint’s historical medal collection led to these sleeping beauties being woken from their slumber with a stylish contemporary kiss. This has resulted in a contemporary jewellery collection with captivating historical overtones. These beautiful historical designs have been given a new lease of life in gold and silver, two precious metals that the Austrian Mint has over eight centuries of experience of minting to the very highest purity.
Two designs form the nucleus of the collection. Rendered with baroque brilliance, a pulsating heart and radiant sun – universal symbols with a special meaning since the dawn of humanity – dazzle in their new incarnation as superbly stylish pieces of jewellery, be they bracelets, earrings or necklaces in both gold or silver. In doing so, they bring a slice of Austrian history back to life for new generations to savour, while underlining and accentuating the individual style of those who wear them.
