Salvavida

"I love the pattern of the ropes on circular safety rings. It reminds me of lovely summer holidays with my sketchbook and pencil, golden sand crystals caught between the pages. So, I made my Salvavida design with tiny diamonds sparkling in the centres like sunlight twinkling on the water. Other times I set blue sapphires to remind me of the sea. Wear one as a bracelet or put two together as a short necklace, or perhaps four as a long chain over a silk shirt."

Emerald

Emerald derives from the term 'smaragdos', meaning 'green stone'. Emerald is the most precious gemstone in the beryl crystal group as a result of its incomparable green, caused by the presence of chromium. Only the finest emeralds are transparent, with most featuring inclusions, often in three phases; of gas, liquid and solid. Historically the finest emeralds were found in Colomnia and India, where one Maharajah was weighed in emeralds. It is also the birthstone for the month of May.
