 Coming back to the past …

It all started with an idea and a great desire to fulfil a dream.

In the difficult 90s we launched our activity. At first we dealt with the processing of jewelry and gemstones, manufacturing jewelry made of cupronickel. Later we created our own sector with gem-cutting and began to create jewelry. We worked for a long time, we created much and we studied constantly.

Actually, I always had big ambitions, especially at creativity. I was amazed and delighted with scrupulous crafts. I wanted to succeed at this very much. In 1998, the idea to create a series of world significant jewels, which would be equivalent to masterpieces of Carl Faberge’s – «Easter eggs» and Alfred Cartier’s – «Magic Clock», arose. As a result, «World on the Palm» collection, which has become classics, appeared. In the following years my creative team and me created a lot of world famous jewelry. Various original boxes, cigarette cases, lockets, pendants and bracelets, necklaces and earrings – all these were created by the hands of our craftsmen – masters of «Lobortas» Classic Jewelry House.

Cufflinks “Trump”

We are addressed, not as good performers, but primarily as creative designers, artists, and if you want – as design engineers of jewelry. Incidentally, cufflinks presented by us for President of the USA Donald Trump – this is an exclusive order of his close associates. We had to make a compromise in the gift to the American President to satisfy the customer and at the same time to demonstrate the author’s handwriting and personality.

Of course, Donald Trump is a wealthy billionaire. He can afford much. But he was delighted and pleasantly surprised with our present. The point is that apart from gemstones and metals, an interesting mechanical action, known by everybody since physics lessons, was used in the item.

Donald Trump became the world’s first exclusive owner of cufflinks with a gyroscope – a device that can respond to changing angles of orientation of the body where it is installed. The simplest example of a gyroscope is a top. These cufflinks were presented to Donald Trump in 2016, during our meeting with him at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.

A few words about the ambassadorial gifts…

We have created a lot of gifts and presented them generously. For example, the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader and the Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dalai Lama XIV was exalted a precious statuette in the shape of a monk- philosopher. And we gladly presented an accessory in the form of a glazed tree, made in the best traditions of «Lobortas» House, to NASA astronaut of Ukrainian origin, the first Ukrainian woman who travelled in space, Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper.

This peculiar ritual is reflected in the modern world. Very often, gift exchange can be seen during the visits of official governmental delegations. In international relations, it is considered a good form, the key to successful diplomacy, strengthening personal and business relationships of the international establishment.
