The Sight of the Stars Makes Me Dream

Vincent van Gogh painted Starry Night in 1889. Unfortunately, during his stay at the asylum near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, he began to suffer hallucination and have thoughts of suicide as he plunged into depression. Accordingly, there was a tonal shift in his work. He returned to incorporating the darker colors from the beginning of his career and Starry Night is a wonderful example of that shift. Blue dominates the painting, blending hills into the sky. The little village lays at the base in the painting in browns, greys, and blues. Even though each building is clearly outlined in black, the yellow and white of the stars and the moon stand out against the sky, drawing the eyes to the sky.

“For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the starts makes me dream.”

Vincent van Gogh
The Sight of the Starts Makes Me

The selection of Starry Night jewelry depicts a dreamy interpretation of the Vincent van Gogh’s asylum room’s sweeping view of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Each of the pieces combines gold-plated cloisonné, midnight blue enamel and an oil dripping design and creates a miniature version of Van Gogh’s masterpiece.
