New Montegrappa Theory of Evolution

With his 1859 book ‘On the Origin of Species’ Charles Darwin transformed our understanding of the natural world. But revolutionary writing requires a delicate hand: he spent two decades refining his theory, readying it for public consumption. For this sterling-silver tribute, eclectic Victorian architecture frames a gallery of grand Darwinian breakthroughs – while concealing an awkward evolutionary truth.


Darwin’s Tree of Life is a metaphor for the interconnections between species. Here, vermeil highlights the brilliance of his discovery among milestones in natural science history.

The Romanesque columns of London’s Natural History Museum provide architectural inspiration in sterling silver. In this cathedral to nature, Darwin’s profound influence inhabits every space.
