A Lace-like Cuff
Stacey is creating a lace-like cuff from the Oro Verde ® gold, imbued with fair trade gems from Columbia Gem House, for the Green Gold exhibition. The gems are a rainbow palette of pinks, oranges, yellows, blues and greens. Kindly donated by Colombia Gem House, and selected by C.E.O Eric Braunwart personally, we have emeralds from Zambia, aquamarines from Mozambique and rubies & cognac, purple and orange sapphires from Malawi. For good measure we have yellow sapphires from Australia. They are exquisite.
