A MAGNIFICENT EMERALD AND DIAMOND NECKLACE

This is the most important creation of my career to date. I was given free rein with the design and I conceived a double strand set with cushion and brilliant cut diamonds. The centre stone is an important cushion cut Colombian emerald of over five carats. It is the piece I am proudest of and the one which have given me greatest pleasure to create.

A TANTALIZING TANZANITE

A classic example of setting a stone belonging to a client: she bought this beautiful tanzanite specimen on holiday in South Africa. Together, we worked on this design. It is beautifully executed: the elements are all separately articulated.

AN AQUAMARINE AND DIAMOND RING

 

This is a perfect example of how an old stone can be given a new lease of life.  The aquamarine itself was badly scratched and restored by my lapidary.  The setting was designed in conjunction with the client, who wanted a versatile jewel she could wear day or night.
