Coloured gemstones add narrative to jewellery, celebrating nature’s artistic touches in telling hues of emotion. Their organic form, natural features, unique sparkle and depths of colour bestow a distinctive charm and splendour to the jewellery pieces they adorn.
Jewellers acknowledge the mesmerising appeal of coloured gemstones and often use these wondrous treasures to convey their design philosophy.
US jewellery manufacturer and retailer Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry recently curated a selection of house-crafted pieces for the summer, featuring top-quality bright-hued coloured gemstones in alluring designs.
Highlights include a handmade ring with a 14.52-carat cushion-shaped checkerboard-cut Mexican fire opal accentuated by 1.60 carats of diamonds, and an aquamarine bangle with the spectacular gem sitting atop a white-gold lattice frame. Also grabbing attention is a ring with a 5.36-carat Ceylon sapphire centre stone set in 18-karat gold and framed by a halo of diamonds.
In its Art Deco Collection, Italian jewellery brand Roberto Coin juxtaposes the severity of geometrics with the intensity of coloured gemstones in unusual, original combinations. Aside from Art Deco silhouettes of drapes and tassels, the collection also experiments with vibrant colour combinations that disrupt the classic rules of harmony.
