Biography

 Gilbert Albert (September 30, 1930 – October 1, 2019) was a Swiss jeweler. He established his jewelry house and opened his own atelier in 1962. Thereafter he designed art jewelry, mostly using gold with rough cut stones and unconventional materials, such as fossilized dinosaur bones and hardened lava rocks
