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.

Blue Topaz

Topaz is an Aluminum fluoro- hyrdroxyl- silicate that occurs in large crystals mostly in Brazil. Its slightly turquoise blue hue, is similar to that of aquamarine. It is perhaps this colour that makes it the stone symbolising friendship and love, honest and fidelity. It is the birthstone for November.
