Rudolf Heltzel: a jewellery treat

The celebrated jeweller Rudolf Heltzel, who is now 74, will make a special appearance in Campbells Jewellers in Donnybrook on Tuesday, December 16th, where his Fire Opal collection will go on sale in aid of First Light – the charity supporting bereaved parents and families from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) of which actor Leigh Arnold is a patron.

Guests will also have an opportunity to view his new Butterfly Collection made with rare and precious stones.

Heltzel is known for the masterful and sensitive treatment of interesting gems, and his pieces are collector’s items. The Fire Opal collection comprises nine pieces including rings and pendants.
