Designer Ann Korman, of ARK Fine Jewelry, captivated me when she explained the inspiration behind her Awakenings collection of sapphire and plique-à-jour enamel designs. In their evocation of the sunrise, the pieces—like the chic cigar band featured below—signal our collective search for new beginnings, perfectly encapsulating jewelry’s ability to be both beautiful and deeply meaningful.
We’re on the cusp of September, that glorious month that welcomes the changing of seasons and is represented by a most beloved gemstone—sapphire.
Surely, you’ll get your fill of the the latest, most beautiful sapphires this month here onJCK(likethis roundupof birthstone beauties), elsewhere, and in social media, though is there such a thing as getting your fill of such a lovely stone?
Most of them will be blue. A blue so divine, you’ll wish to leap right in. Now I’m not suggesting that image could be tiresome (truly never!), but just this once, maybe we can welcome sapphire with another one of its hues?
