In the March issue of #RapaportMagazine@jewelrynewsnetwork explains the creative process behind this spectacular @alexandramornewyork ring. Alexandra Mor’s commitment to creating jewels from responsibly sourced materials comes through in this one-of-a-kind ring, which features two Colombian emerald beads from the @muzo_official mine totaling 18.15 carats, and a 16.80-carat wild tagua bead. These, as well as the platinum and gold, are from sustainable sources, and the diamonds — which Mor’s husband acquired through reliable dealers — adhere to the Kimberley Process (KP) protocol.
While the piece bears Mor’s signature design details, the spherical beads are a new shape for her. “I wanted to create something more rounded and visceral,” she says. “A representation of mother earth that’s very feminine and soft. I’m continuing the same language as my previous work while bringing something new with the shape and materials.” The ring is part of a five-piece collection that took about five months to create once Mor received the emeralds from Muzo, where the gems were also cut. The tagua was sourced and cut in Ecuador, and four artisans crafted the jewel in New York.
I have my new large halo with teardrop available in a new color now. It's tough to match colors across shapes and sizes when working with vintage Swarovski crystals, so I was excited when these came in the mail and the teardrop stones matched perfectly! This rich Sapphire blue is a classic and vibrant color. Working on getting the photos up online now, but I wanted to give you a quick preview!
