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.

DAY AND NIGHT: VARIATIONS ON A THEME

I love how just changing the colour produces such dramatic results. The concept for these two rings came from a Faberge design feature: that of having cut stones running over a smooth surface, and this concept translated itself into several pieces,

Rubellite, black diamond and pearl ring in black gold.

The same design, two results.
