‘Terra Ring’ from the Rare Earth: Australian Made collection. Translating to ‘Land’ in Latin, the ‘Terra Rings’ bring together three gemstones from one specific region of Australia together, on a flat surface which I have handcarved to represent the dry, desert-like land the chosen gemstones are originally fossicked. In this version of my ‘Terra Ring’ the sapphires are from the town of Rubyvale in Central Queensland.
18ct yellow gold Terra Ring set with three Australian parti sapphires from Rubyvale, Queensland (0.83 carats.) Ring size N. Handmade in Sydney, Australia.
ABOUT RARE EARTH: AUSTRALIAN MADE
First launched in 2015 by Courtesy of the Artist, Rare Earth: Australian made is a contemporary fine jewellery collection that celebrates Australia’s most coveted gemstones.
“I have a very strong connection to and am continually inspired by the rich biodiversity and natural landscapes of our unique and beautiful country. Over the years, my Rare Earth: Australian Made collections have drawn inspiration from Australia’s natural wonders, in particular those I have had the pleasure of experiencing and exploring first hand. The outback opal mining town of Andamooka, South Australia and my home away from home, the tall coastal forests that edge the shores of the waters of Jervis Bay on the NSW south coast continually inspire my Rare Earth body of work.”
