The ways of precious are numerous and wonderful. They have the beauty of the rare and wonder us about the ultimate luxury. What is really precious?
it immediately evokes the cut stones, the mysterious crimped, sublimation of materials by the genius of man. In art, the precious presents a character of great delicacy, gloss or wealth. It is often associated to gold, mirrors and ornaments. But even if all that is valuable is precious, precious is not the same for all.

Vincent Grégoire for Nelly Rodi’s Trends Space on Maison & Objet January 2015 put forward the technology in the making…
The hand, the tool of a new luxury, touches and transforms. From the alphabet of materials and the grammar of technique, the savoir-faire of neo-craftspersons writes sensitive and rare objects. These works demonstrate radical singularity beyond their function. The art of making is freeing the object itself from the mundane, thus giving it the possibility to leave its mark upon time.
The metamorphoses that separate the raw material from the finished piece illustrate a vast and fascinating range of savoir-faire. The hand plays the leading role in the theatre of technique. A tool of the mind, we assign it its own intelligence, with knowledge shared and enriched from one generation to the next. The world of luxury gives new life to its value by bearing witness to the steps required to realise exceptional products. Similarly, designers overwhelmingly endorse the sensuality and singularity to which such objects give rise, as a counterpoint to globalisation.
