Gemfields Joins Forces with Top Jewelers for Spectacular Ruby Designs

What unites the pieces is their ethical provenance, which stems from Gemfields’ commitment to responsible sourcing. “It means a lot to me to know the materials I use are ethically sourced and that the workers involved in each step are fairly compensated,” says Los Angeles–based designer Kimberly McDonald, who created a pair of opal earrings for Gemfields that are set in white gold with black rhodium, and framed by rubies and diamonds. “What I like about the Mozambican rubies I’ve purchased from Gemfields is their color,” she adds. “Rubies, particularly smaller stones like the ones I used in these earrings, can tend to show up a bit dark. But these are a beautiful bright color and filled with life.”

“Gemfields is the ultimate ingredient brand,” says Sally Morrison, director of sales and marketing for Gemfields in the Americas. “It’s never going to have its own jewelry line, but we can live in any number of aesthetic expressions and it’s important to illustrate that diversity. We can be extraordinary in high jewelry and in small, fashion-forward things that will find a very specific audience—and everything in between.” (gemfields.co.uk)
