Before London Fashion Week, ethical jeweler Monica Vinader has collaborated with cult sustainable designer Mother of Gem to produce a collection that basically redefines awesome.
The 12-piece line was created of both brands’ devotion to social impact and also the planet. It draws inspiration in the ‘unexpected places on finds beauty’, for example oyster shells and damaged pottery. Each bit embraces organic shapes and earthy tactility
Embracing circularity because of its versatility and materials, it’s produced in one hundredPercent recycled gold vermeil satin finish, and all sorts of pieces are adorned with freshwater pearls or hands cut diamonds. They may be worn by themselves or stacked together for endless styling options.
They’re packaged in 100% recyclable and FSG-certified packaging, and therefore are based on the brand’s lifetime repair shop.

‘We desired to create something which celebrates nature’s own unique design process. Every gem and gemstone differs. We didn’t would like to try and refine these into one classic type of perfection,’ states Amy Powney, Creative Director of Mother of Gem.
‘We checked out beauty in unpredicted places – oyster shells worn through the ocean and switched into evocative shapes, damaged pottery fixed while using Japanese art of Kintsugi, a tangle of roots beneath a tree. We found old and new materials which are unique from each other. For example kasha pearls, and stunning universe diamonds. The remainder is really a tactile collection with fluid lines inside a satin finish, as though the pieces came directly from our soil,’ adds Monica Vinader.
