A spectacular symbol of passion and desire, our ruby collections are a seductive combination of the world’s most beautiful stones and contemporary design flair.
Whether it is their richness of color or deep-red glow that draws us near, since man first laid eyes on the ruby thousands of years ago, we have been enthralled by their mysterious beauty.
A perfectionist’s eye for color has led Jeremy Morris to venture across the globe in search of the rarest of all rubies. Once only mined in south-east Asia, these astonishing stones are distinguishable by their ‘pigeon’s blood’ hue, a richly evocative name for the most sought-after color in a ruby.
For our remarkable ruby jewelry creations Jeremy Morris carefully gathers the finest stones from around the world, with only the most beautiful brought to our Bond Street atelier. Here these natural treasures are crafted into contemporary jewels that dip into the past while looking towards the future.
