Toni Cavelti was a world-famous master modernist jeweller, artist , designer. Born in Switzerland, Toni Cavelti opened his first jewellery design atelier in Vancouver over 50 years ago. Admired for his fabulous modernist designs and the dynamism captured in his art. His spectacular jewellery has received international acclaim, from a necklace designed for Queen Elizabeth plus four International Diamonds Awards. Now, a designer for Birks, Toni continues to inspire contemporary designs that are coveted across the country and around the world. Modernist design became popular in 20th century as a response to changes in technology and society. Simple, clean lines replaced ornamentation, and new materials were embraced. From the mid-1940s designers and makers from Scandinavia and Canada led the way within the Modernist jewellery movement. Individual artists and designers pushed aside traditional ideas of production and adopted new influences – often drawing inspiration from the natural environment. They created unique beautiful works that demonstrated restraint, simplicity and functionality. In the mid 1950s British jeweller-artists and designers began to produce similar work. British Modernist jewellery became defined by the use of textural, sculptural gold work, inspired by nature and often incorporating large gemstones. Modernist jewellery is becoming more and more popular and the prices are increasing all the time. There has been a sharp increase in interest in Toni Cavelti and other Canadian jeweller-designers
