Winston Churchill said, “I cannot pretend to be impartial about the colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns.” I think I’ve quoted this before, and it’s because it always falls into my head when I think of brown anything. But brown is also be supremely elegant; think butter-soft suede boots, conker-coloured leather jackets, chocolate coloured cashmere, all the shades of Autumn. Recently we have introduced a whole new line of brown moonstone; a product I’ve been humming and haa-ing about for a while, and why? Just because there are brighter peacocks out there: I’ve been dazzled by multi-coloured tourmaline; blinded by peridots and amethysts but just now I am appreciating the quiet elegance of this soft milk-chocolate coloured moonstone. We’ve got cabs and rose cuts 6-10mm. I am particularly partial to brown with silver, but below is a fantastic ring by Karin Jamieson, a whopping 34 carats of moonstone set in 18 carat gold; simple and devastatingly elegant. You can browse our brown moonstone at the Hong Kong store here and the USA store here. Prices start from $1.85 for a 6mm cabochon.Karin Jamieson brown moonstone and 18 carat gold ring

Now called ‘fancy blacks’, they began their popularity streak when designers started […]

A few years ago I started seeing Super 7 at gemstone fairs. I hadn’t seen it before and I first saw it on the stand of a really fantastic Brazilian gemstone supplier who always has the most sublime quality tourmaline and rutile. Gorgeous clear crystal with bronze coloured needles shot through with smears of bright […]
