Vincells is a truly unique Hungarian brand. The beauty of it is that the original idea was inspired by a memory in Italy. Moreover, the raw material that is used to create the exquisite pieces is very unusual. Although nobody would think so at first glance, the creator of Vincells jewellery designs jewellery made of wine.
The stones of the jewellery are made in a workshop equipped with special technology. The wine is solidified through an 8-10-week-long process. However, not every wine can be used for this process. The beverage’s chemistry and physical parameters have to be studied first. Every piece of jewellery has a unique pattern thanks to the process, according to their official page.
All Vincells jewellery is special and unmatched. Vincells jewellery is prepared with precious metal accessories that are made entirely of real silver and gold. All pieces of jewellery are handmade.
Ágnes Csikósné Homolya is the creator of the accessories, writes sokszinuvidek.24.hu. The idea of the jewellery dates back to 2014. That year, Ágnes and her husband visited Italy and tried Italian wine at various locations. At a dinner in Trieste, Ágnes told her husband that she wished to keep this memory. This is what inspired her to think about how to turn wine into tangible material. Eventually, she came up with a new concept.
There is no other wine jewellery like this. The Hungarian creation is a trademark of the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
Creating wonderful pieces is not easy, however. She had more than 30 failed attempts before the idea turned into a masterpiece. The process is indeed difficult, and there are steps to be executed at specific times.
“There is a point in the process where timing is so crucial that there cannot be a moment of delay. This means that if some samples are under the solidifying process, we set timers on our phones. If it is at 2:14 am, then that’s that. We get up at night, put on our coats on top of our pyjamas and go over to the workshop to complete the necessary steps. Then we go back to sleep,” Ágnes said.
The jewellery is made of various wines like red wine, white wine or rosé. The person who wishes to buy such a piece of jewellery can bring his or her own bottle of wine. If the wine can be used to make the earring, bracelet or necklace, then the origin of the wine can add a sentimental value to the jewel.
For example, customers can take a bottle of the wines that were served at their wedding and turn it into a tangible, long-lasting item. Of course, the wine could be from anywhere, as long as it can be used as material for the Vincells items.
