Skully Gin presented the Skully Art Collection at ‘The Philips Estate’ in Eindhoven. During
the 3-day event, international guests were treated to a unique art exhibition, including a world
record, combined with culinary masterpieces and innovations.
13 international Artists
Skully Gin collaborated with 13 international artists to create 141 artpieces inspired by the
Skully brand. The entire process took over 2 years to complete, resulting in some crazy & cool
contemporary art. For the Skully brand the number 13 reflects its rebellious image and thus most of the creations are limited to 13 pieces.
The highlight of the exhibition was a Piece Unique created by Belgian jewellery designer
Jochen Leën, Granada Gallery and Skully Gin. A flawless 65.17 carat Paraíba Tourmaline in a white gold setting was placed inside a 450cl bottle of Skully Gin, creating the most expensive bottle of Gin in the world. The specific Paraíba used, belongs to the top 7 most exclusive Paraíbas in the World. With Paraíba being more rare and more rare and expensive than Diamond, this unique Skully Gin bottle is valued at €4.700.000,-.
Investing in top quality, rare gemstones, Belgian jewellery designer Jochen Leën creates
true contemporary works of art. Only Nature’s best and rarest gemstones are used in
one of a kind jewellery designs, making them small objects of desire and future family
heirlooms. The Jochen Leën brand has gained international acclaim and is now instantly associated with precious gems, jewellery and objets d’art such as paintings and even fossilized dinosaurs. Granada Gallery’s global mining initiative for minerals and precious stones focuses its efforts on the excavation of colored stones. Aquamarine, morganite and tourmaline are mined in Brazil and Mozambique, the latter also producing the highly sought-after
Paraíba tourmaline that is used in this unique artwork.
Jochen Leën & Granada Gallery merged into a joint-venture, blending geological relevance with contemporary design objects and modern art with the breathtaking
memory of evolution. Together they are expanding on their shared vision of creating a worldwide service for bespoke jewellery and art using the very best gemstones and geological treasures on the market.
