Inverted Emerald and Diamond Sweeping Cluster Studs
Luminous clusters of inverted emeralds and antique salt and pepper diamonds set amongst 18ct golden granules, on studs. Beautiful, intricate earrings from the sumptuous Hera collection: luxurious and extravagant, harking back to the myriad treasures discovered throughout the prosperity of history, now re-imagined into wearable, contemporary artworks. Each resembles a precious, timeless jewel from a bygone era.
Emerald, the birthstone of May, carries the rich green colour of spring and radiates a beautiful vivid tone. They are considered to be a symbol of rebirth and love. It is also the gem that married people traditionally gift on their 55th wedding anniversary.
Since graduating with an MA from London’s Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth Tomlinson continues to investigate the unpredictable and push boundaries of perceived preciousness in her critically acclaimed jewellery collections. She is considered by industry experts as one of the leading influences in the current generation of UK jewellery designers, and her unique designs and luxuriously wearable adornments are conceived with the notion of being treasured forever.
'I am driven by my passion for the earths treasures; the magic of minutiae, tiny intricacies, small imperfections, and the individual’s search for preciousness. I seek out the unconventional beauty within and this fuels my creativity, whether in the rarity of material or a curiosity in nature.
My inspiration is drawn from both the mysteries of historical jewels and the ephemerality of natures life cycles from birth to decay. My work is often a response to my immediate environment, whether a fleeting moment on a train in India or being totally immersed in a single jewel at a local museum. My eyes are wide open to new discoveries and I love to observe and absorb my surroundings.'
