Aquamarine, the birthstone of March, has a rich colour and has long been a symbol of youth, health and hope. Its mesmerising colour ranges from pale to deep blue and are reminiscent of the sea. A perfect birthstone for March, the aquamarine creates a beautiful accent to spring and summer wardrobes. It is also the gem that married people traditionally gift on their 19th wedding anniversary.
Laura Ngyou’s jewellery reflects a fascination for miniature worlds found within the natural landscape; from exotic jungle flora to the humble rock pool. Her obsession with geology drives her to select the most interesting and unusual gemstone specimens to compose unique settings sympathetic to their individual character. Here she re-imagines the natural landscape and dynamic crystalline structures from which it was discovered using vivid contrasts of precious metals to create sumptuous, other-worldly qualities.
The maker’s passion for travel is reflected in her work, born into a large family who span the globe from Asia to north America, she is drawn towards discovery and exploration. Intrigued by the ambiguity of form, each piece is ultimately a product of her imagination – an abstract composition which quietly provokes the observer to look more closely, reflect on journeys and the natural curiosities which have inspired her.
