“I’ve always been fascinated with the inner beauty of stones and crystals, I love the idea and the romance of hidden elements, and the beautiful pattern formations evident in the rocks and minerals, and the pressure-formed seams and fractures created by shifts in the Earth, that become the focus for mining.” Ruth Tomlinson
"Historical jewels have always intrigued and inspired me, throughout the ages man has been drawn to precious natural treasures and transformed them into decorative wearable jewels. Seeing these personal manmade treasures and talismans on display in historical portraits, each created by unnamed master craftsmen, is incredibly alluring. I love to imagine the stories each jewel has to tell, think about where they could be now. Perhaps they're buried somewhere, lost in time, waiting to be rediscovered." Ruth Tomlinson
All of the jewels in the Hera collection spotlight a showstopping sapphire or diamond, selected for its unique and unusual colour, which is then complemented by a lavish arrangement of diamonds in tones of white, grey, champagne and black. The beautiful melee of materials are brought together with Ruth's signature golden granules.
Every individual piece is created as a truly one-of-a-kind artwork to treasure, never to be replicated or recreated.
