Sandy Leong x Gemfields launch The Serenity Collection
Gemfields is excited to announce its third collection with New York-based designer Sandy Leong. The Serenity Collection combines Gemfields’ Zambian emeralds with freshwater peals.
This stunning range, of asymmetric bangles, earrings, necklaces and rings, revamps the demure image of pearls by juxtaposing them against the bold green hue of emeralds, perfectly capturing the freshness of a new season. Each piece has been hand-crafted in New York by fine jewellery artisans using time-honoured gemstone-setting and gold-brushing techniques to create the trademark Sandy Leong matte finish.
Through her use of contemporary geometric designs – twisted rings and wave bangles – and mismatched gemstone sizes, Leong has created a collection that is modern yet timeless, reimagining the ‘classic’ image of pearls. Stacking has always been a hallmark of Leong’s designs, and this collection is no exception, with the Pearl and Emerald Wave bangles made to be worn individually or combined for more of a statement look.
Each creation positions Gemfields Zambian emeralds and freshwater pearls to stunning effect in pieces like the Pearl Strand Lariat pendant necklace with Emerald Halo and Pearl Twist Cocktail ring. And not only is this collection aesthetically enchanting: it is also set to do good.
Leong has committed to donating 10% of proceeds from sales of Serenity collection pieces featuring Zambian emeralds to the Gemfields Foundation, the charitable arm of Gemfields. This generosity will go towards supporting initiatives connected to children and education in sub-Saharan Africa. Similar donations from the two previous Sandy Leong x Gemfields collections have made a tangible difference to people’s lives, helping to fund construction of a primary school in rural Madagascar, for example.
