Fine jewellery brand Annoushka has collaborated with Fuli Gemstones on a new peridot jewellery collection.
Annoushka Ducas, founder of the British brand, is known for her use of coloured gemstones and this September will launch a high jewellery collection in collaboration with Fuli.
The collection will feature peridot from Fuli’s Yiqisong Nanshan mine, the largest peridot mine in the world.
It combines luminous octagon-cut Fuli peridot, malachite, pink sapphire, and 18k yellow gold and is inspired by Annoushka’s love of Art Deco.
She commented: “I have always loved peridot but had little idea it had such a rich history going back to the ancient Egyptians and Cleopatra herself.
“Cleopatra believed peridot represented hope and courage, it was known as the gem of the sun – a message which feels particularly pertinent in 2021.
“One of the things I love about Art Deco is its total balance and symmetry – it’s extravagant yet completely paired back.
“I designed my engagement ring in this style 30 years ago and I haven’t ever taken it off – it’s completely timeless and a big inspiration for this peridot collection.’’
Meanwhile, Pia Tonna, CMO of Fuli Gemstones, said: “Annoushka is renowned for injecting innovative ideas into her creations.
“Her designs for this distinctive and eye-catching high jewellery collection make our vibrant Fuli peridot the focal point of each piece, the results of our collaboration speak for themselves, they are simply stunning.”
Ducas added: “I have always loved peridot, so it’s been a privilege working with Fuli Gemstones on this collection, designing with some of the best quality peridot in the world – having full visibility on the whole process is something very important to me and to the business and I can’t wait to visit the mine.”
