La Martorana

In the small church of La Martorana, curated by Greek officials for a Norman King, you are astounded. The mosaics seem to reflect the patchwork of cultures that is Sicily. I sat one afternoon after lunch in the cool of La Martorana, and wondered how to tell the story of these mosaics in a jewel.

My pencil drawings of the intricate, geometric patterns had a simplicity that I liked instantly and consequently, the La Martorana earrings and necklace pendant are made in only white and yellow gold.

Diamond

Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
