Boutique jeweller Arabel Lebrusan has launched her Hera Collection of women’s engagement rings in her new showroom in Brighton this month. The Collection has been thoughtfully designed to celebrate the goddess within, and individual pieces are named after well-loved goddesses in Greek mythology, including Hera, Demeter and Hestia.
The Hera Collection is a selection of ethical engagement rings in designs including bezel-set solitaire and trilogy arrangements of traceable Canadian diamonds, lab grown yellow diamonds and Malawi sapphires and rubies. The rings are crafted from ethical 18 carat gold or recycled platinum.
When it comes to coloured diamonds, buyers often find that quality yellow diamonds are so rare and reach such expensive prices in the market that having a synthetic alternative offers great potential for jewellery designers.
Arabel dreams of a world where provenance is required for all gemstones. This would require that all gemstones are tracked through-out the supply chain, and that everyone involved in their production, small scale artisan or big corporation, is paid a fair price.
When it comes to her Hera collection, Arabel says: “An engagement is such a special time in two people’s lives, and the Hera Collection of engagement rings is a reflection and celebration of women as goddesses. In designing these unique pieces, I found inspiration in the goddesses of Greek mythology, but also the goddess in each of us.
“The shoulders of each ring bear beautiful scrolls, exquisitely hand-engraved by artisans in the heart of London’s famed jewellery district, Hatton Garden. I am so proud to have worked with these fine jewellers on this very special Collection.”
The Collection’s pieces are crafted from Fairtrade and Fair-mined ecological gold and platinum as well as traceable gemstones. The Hera Collection is now available for viewing by appointment in the UK.
Each Arabel Lebrusan piece is delivered in a 100% recyclable jewellery box, featuring a cushioned velvet lining. UK and international customers are invited to view the captivating Hera collection by appointment, or online at www.arabellebrusan.com.
