Watermelon Tourmaline Gemstones

With its juicy burst of color, the aptly named watermelon tourmaline perfectly mimics the rind and flesh of our favorite summer fruit. Here we take a closer look at the origins of the watermelon tourmaline and talk to the designers who have a particular preference for working with this one-of-a-kind gem.

Most tourmaline deposits are found in veins that run through rocks, which were created by molten magma from volcanoes. As the magma cooled, large cracks formed, which were filled with a solution of water and minerals such as iron, lithium or manganese that, over time, turned into crystals of tourmaline and other stones. It is these trace elements that give tourmalines their vivid colors, ranging from red, green and blue to yellow and orange.

Watermelon tourmaline is an interesting multi-colored elbaite variety. Gems are usually fashioned in thin polished slices to display the crystal’s concentric color rings. If you use your imagination, the green represents the skin of the watermelon, white makes up the rind, and pink is the sweet fruit. Incredibly, the colors of watermelon tourmaline are 100% natural, a rare occurrence in nature that makes the gem highly collectible.

CHOCOLATE BOX
CHOCOLATE BOX

This miniature piece of cubist art sets a trio of distinct blues in flawless 18ct white gold, for a splash of bohemian beauty. Brightest of all is radiant indicolite, or blue tourmaline, alluring as a summer sea, with the softer colors of the aquamarine and sapphire set perfectly alongside, framed by pristine diamonds. Hand finished under magnification, the detail is incredible in this, and others in the Chocolate Box collection.




Cannele_Cabochon_Group-601x400
CANNELÉ CABOCHON

The Cannelé Cabochon collection is a playful rainbow of cocktail rings blending intricate, hand-finished fluting with the curved smoothness of the central stone. Softly twisted, gleaming 18ct yellow and rose gold settings hold amethyst, tourmaline, rubellite, mandarin garnet, tanzanite and diamond, all play their part in this colorful, modern collection.

Cannele_Engage__Wed-297x400
CANNELÉ ENGAGEMENT RING

The Cannelé Engagement ring is a delicate platinum piece with a mesmerizing 0.33ct diamond center. Designed in France, inspired by Gallic romance, this unusual ring marries our classic Cannelé shape with an echoing band. A perfect inversion, the detail of the wedding ring is similarly fluted and hand finished to sit seamlessly underneath the main ring.

Satellite_Peridot-233x400
SATELLITE PERIDOT

A platinum setting holds a trio of brilliant cut diamonds, each surrounded by a cluster of tiny, intricately cut stones. Meticulous fluting to each of the three settings brings extraordinary detail, from all angles, to this elegant, romantic engagement ring.

Celestial-Group_Web_03-382x400
CELESTIAL COLLECTION

There’s something magical about the Celestial collection – striking spherical gemstones set in a sculptural design, each stone suspended in a setting of 18ct yellow gold and diamonds.

Since 1998 Andrew Geoghegan has been garnering a reputation for precision-designed chic; for pieces that unify sometimes seemingly contradictory elements – angular facets and soft curves, warm shades and metallic coldness. Unity is an ever-present theme and inspiration – of people and personalities as much as gems, precious metals, iridescent color and striking form. Today’s collections show the power of intricate design and detailing to fuse these elements into exquisite, timeless jewelry.
ndrew’s early endeavors were not in jewelry design, but were vital to igniting that affinity with metals and his pursuit of crafted perfection. As a young sculptor, his experiments with metal would allow him to understand the characteristics and potential of this most elemental of materials. He learned how to manipulate and direct it, and how to marry it with other precious materials. This unorthodox background is part of what makes an Andrew Geoghegan piece distinctive – there’s clear empathy for the relationships between materials, his work unifying the practice of art and manufacturing craft. His own story, that past life comes through. Pieces take a sculptural form, and flights of imaginations could easily rescale and place them in the courtyard of the Royal Academy or the lobby of Le Louvre. Art is always part of the process and final piece – a unique ‘artful engineering’ that yields seductive beauty, endurance and distinction.
It’s a uniqueness that has not gone unnoticed. There are plenty of awards and accolades, including the British Jewelry Association’s 2014 Designer of the Year Award, and Editor’s Choice at International Jewelry London 2015. This collection, inspired and created in a studio nestled among Yorkshire’s lush rolling hills is now winning friends and followers around the world.

The unity of things will always be a driving force –collections are a marriage of quirky bohemian Britishness and classic Gallic romance; it’s the joining of artistic flourish and precision manufacturing, sealed with the glue of beautifully clever, intricate design. But the most important union of all, the one that inspires the work most, is the one between jewelry and its wearer. The spirit and ambition of each creation is to enhance and illuminate beauty, never to eclipse it; to complement and invigorate it. Andrew Geoghegan makes jewelry for you to make your own – a quietly striking addition, your own work of art.

The legendary career of David Morris began in 1951, when at age 15, he learned the craft of diamond mounting by apprenticing a master jeweller in Hatton Garden, the centre of London’s jewellery trade. After a short stint at London’s Central School of Arts and Crafts, he qualified as a goldsmith in 1959. Setting up his own Hatton Garden jewellery firm in 1962, David Morris quickly became an internationally known name as he and his design partner, Anne Seymour, successively claimed the ninth and tenth De Beers Diamonds International Awards, given annually in New York to promote innovative design.
