A precious and elegant wearable treasure perfect for layering or wearing alone, the pastel coloured sapphires (0.86ct total) twinkle amongst 14ct golden granules like an underwater treasure encrusted over time, worn on a delicate 18 inch chain.

Sapphire, the birthstone of September, is most desired in its pure, rich blue colour but is present in almost every colour including pink, yellow and green. In the Middle Ages the gem was believed to protect those close to you from harm and also represented loyalty and trust. It is also the gem that married couples traditionally gift on their 45th wedding anniversary.

 

The Designer 

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.'
