Acai

The Acai berries hang in the most wonderful panicles in the rainforests of Brazil. I loved the ice creams, drinks and deserts made with them, they were part of life in Rio in my first few days there and I could not resist bringing their story back with me as a jewel. My jewelled berries hang from golden branches as pendants and as earrings. And for my 35th anniversary, I made a unique pair of Acai earrings set with aquamarines, some beautiful rare marquise facetted tanzanites and diamonds.

Aquamarine

Aquamarine with its hues of blue and green is known as the sailor's gem ensuring safe travels across the seas. It is the birthstone for March. The colour in aquamarine is due to the presence of iron in the beryl crystal lattice with the most important deposits being found throughout Brazil as well as in Africa where the colours of blue can almost be a pungent blue.
