Ring115Side Lapis, Pearl, Diamond Ring

This 23.03ct oval Lapis Lazuli sits on a setting of 14k yellow gold, diamond and Mother of Pearl. The iridescent qualities of Mother of Pearl is the perfect partner for this particular Lapis Lazuli which is flecked with subtle white specks. The delicate placement of the diamond and the intricate design work of the gold setting creates a brilliant contrast between the bold white and blue of the Lapis and pearl.


Imperial-resized Estate David Webb Ring

Silver, gold, blue, green, stripes, circles and squares - this piece has it all. More precisely, this David Webb ring is made up of a 4.64ct Cabochon cut emerald set in platinum with round brilliant diamonds, 18k yellow gold all finished off with a royal blue enamel. Made circa 1970s, it is truly amazing how contemporary this piece feels.


Ring120Side Lapis and Jasper Ring

With its thick black Jasper setting and yellow gold accents this striking ring evokes the chunky-qualities of tribal jewelry in stark contrast to the elegant and precise gold pattern influenced by Art Deco design. The stone in this piece is a 52.17ct oval bezel set Lapis Lazuli. With both the dark and light tones in this stone, it is the perfect piece to take from winter into spring.

Center stage

Sometimes the stone simply says it all. Emerald cut aquamarines and sapphires, exquisitely designed necklaces and cocktail rings, these designs center around one thing and one thing only - a big blue rock!

The tapered design of this stunning Swiss Blue Topaz and 14k yellow gold necklace needs nothing more. Set on a cream, navy or black top, the two colors in this piece will sing.

Ring118Side Turquoise and Rhodolite Ring

Rhodolite stones and 14k white gold have been perfectly matched with this flawless 7.54ct oval Cabochon Turquoise. Such a light-colored stone is perfect on a white gold setting as it doesn't distract from its impact of color.

Paired up

Blue is unmistakably versatile. It can be worn in summer - think sky blue and turquoise shades - right through to navy and midnight tones in winter. Such a cool color can be perfectly paired with so many other fiery colors such as pink, orange, red and yellow.

If you're wearing a brooch or a choker, you're making a serious style statement. This blue topaz, ruby and diamond 14K yellow and white gold brooch is in the perfect colors for this floral design.

There's so much color and design details in this pendant necklace, where to start? A citrine 18k yellow gold Renaissance Revival pendant sits on three strands of aquamarine beads which have a total weight of 6.95cts. Here, the necklace has been styled with a Chanel-esque jacket with a circa 1980s feel, but it would go equally perfectly with a contemporary structured sweater in one bold color.
