The Steinway Crown Jewels. A Sought After Musical Gem.

Crown Jewels Burl Walnut

The Steinway Crown Jewel Collection is an exclusive range of pianos made from the finest of veneers.

Built to the same exacting, uncompromising standards of the classic Steinway the pianos in this series depart from the tradition of the polished ebony finish with their unusual, visually arresting veneers.

Exquisite Veneers

Each beautiful wood selected enhances the beauty showcasing the artistry and craftsmanship of these magnificent instruments. Woods for the veneers used for the grand pianos include macassar ebony, East Indian rosewood, kewazinga bubinga and amber wood, whereas pommelé mahogany and Indian apple are used to refine the upright pianos. Steinway uses a carefully selected range of woods, many of which are exotic (but comply with all international sustainability regulations) or little used showing striking colour palettes and dramatic grain patterns.

[pullquote]Steinway & Sons pianos are the choice of nine out of ten concert pianists as well as countless professionals and amateurs.[/pullquote]

The challenge of working with extremely delicate, paper thin veneers with their unique grains allows Steinway to once more demonstrate the skill of its craftspeople. Each piece of veneer is just 0.5mm thick and feels like premium paper. As they prepare to attach it, Steinway craftspeople ensure that the pattern matches precisely and evenly from one end of the piano to the other, even across the bevelled edge of the lid. Clients know that they own a piano whose distinctive look is unlike any other.

Adorned With a Gem

The Crown Jewel Collection was first introduced in 1999 and has since then seen a constant increase in popularity, reasons enough for Steinway for an exclusive upgrade to the collection in 2014: each new piano now has a diamond embedded into the fall board. A symbol of beauty and perfection the white diamond perfectly matches the Crown Jewel ethos. Each stone has a certificate to prove that it has been ethically sourced. To complete this extraordinary collection, each piano is fitted with a special Crown Jewels Emblem on the sound board to underline the uniqueness of this range. www.steinway.com
