Piece designed as part of Gemfields project unveiled in March.
Emerald was named Pantone’s colour of 2013 and the gemstone of the same name has really has come to the fore of late. Its profile has been boosted further by the stellar rise of gemstone company Gemfields, which started out specialising in mining the stone.
Its marketing efforts have elevated emeralds to new heights and in March the London-based company, along with actress ambassador Mila Kunis, unveiled striking new jewellery designs created by 37 international designers using its stones, the majority of which were emeralds.
Former textile designer, architect and landscape artist Coomi was among this exclusive line up and used more than 120cts of shard-like Gemfields’ Zambian emeralds and 5.21cts of rough-cut diamonds to create this flowing collar design that is simultaneously edgy and elegant.
