Specialists and admirers of the jewellery art call him "Faberge of the 20th century", "main innovator and experimenter of the 20th century", "Number 1 jeweller"... The master of world renown, who has been avoiding active interaction with public and jewellery artists, has had such a profound impact on the contemporary jewellery making art that many critic call the late 20th – early 21st century "Epoch of Rosenthal".

Combining the most original discoveries of masters of the previous century in his creative work, J.A.R. has not just shaped his own stunning with its innovativeness style, but also has set the new criteria of the mastery in creating jewellery artworks. The highest quality of processing precious and non-precious materials, impressive design, deeply poetic variety of ideas and themes of his works, all this originated a wave of imitations to the jeweller of the world renown among independent masters and famous jewellery houses.
