The Osmium Violin is the most precious and outstanding modern violin ever being made. Edgar Russ, a distinguished violinmaker from Cremona with over 40 years of craftsmanship and experience in the field of high level violinmaking dedicated almost three years to create this instrument.
The idea to create this outstanding instrument came from two good friends from Edgar Russ in Austria. They were searching for the perfect investment instrument to launch crystalline Osmium. A material which is at least 40 times more precious than Gold.
The Osmium Violin is decorated with 541 pieces of custom-made crystalline Osmium inlays which were cut following the design created by Edgar Russ and his mother Agatha Russ by wire erosion. Every single piece of crystalline Osmium is certified with OIC and assigned with an Xcode. Every inlay is set in 18 carat gold by hand and worked into the wood. The 298 pieces of diamonds, rubies, sapphires and tsavorites, each inlay set by hand in 18 carat gold, worked in and laid between a double gold purfling along the edge of the entire violin.
Edgar Russ has designed a specific violin shape to obtain even with all of this decorations a great powerful cremonese sound.
