Luxury house Fabergé has introduced new pieces to its Colours of Love collection ahead of the Valentine’s gifting period.
While the Colours of Love collection has always combined traditional craftsmanship with modern techniques and contemporary style, these new rings now also highlight an additional dimension – responsible sourcing.
The rubies in the range are from Gemfields’ Mozambican Montepuez mine while the emeralds come from the company’s Kagem mine in Zambia.
Gemfields work with mining communities, governments and conservation NGOs to ensure every gemstone sold supports schools, medical care, the environment and conservation.
To complement these precious gemstones, Fabergé has utilised environmentally ‘sustainable’ gold ore from Peru, which guarantees mercury-free extraction.
The Colours of Love collection is based on Peter Carl Fabergé’s trademark techniques – like fluting, where parallel grooves are hand carved into 18ct gold. Peter Carl revived this unique style, inspired by the skills of ancient Roman gold and silversmiths, and employed it on his famous Imperial Eggs. Fabergé now showcases this elegant technique on the bands of these rings. Although the procedure, has been updated – each ring is cast in a 3D model – every groove has to be hand polished before the stones can be set.
The new Colours of Love rings offer three fluted band designs to suit every style – plain fluted, alongside diamond and gemstone-set fluted shoulders.
The three coloured gemstones – ruby, emerald and sapphire – have been carefully chosen and each have been a potent symbol of love since ancient times.
These versatile rings can be worn alone or stacked with matching bands within the collection to create a signature look which can be built over time.
At the heart of each ring is uniqueness – no two natural gemstones are alike; every stone has its own clarity, character and story, making each piece one-of-a-kind.
In a final touch, inspired Peter Carl’s fondness for surprise and discovery, Fabergé has concealed a matching gemstone on the inside of the band, a secret stone on the skin that only the wearer knows is there.
