Congratulations to Fiona & Lambrose. They wanted a ring that was thoughtful in terms of provenance and production. We made them a unplated white gold band with a locally sourced uncut Torrington emerald. I love these soft, subtle colours and the translucence of the emerald. #corkysaintclair #madeinmelbourne #torringtonemerald #engagementring #weddingring #alternativeengagementring #emeraldring #alternativebridal #goldband #goldring #indiewedding

The Golden Hour - when the light is warmer and softer and everything looks the way we should remember them. Our locket evokes this sentiment capturing your memories in two scalloped photo frames made from beautiful, glowing solid gold. The locket is made of solid 9ct yellow gold. The engraving is done by hand in Melbourne. We have presented this locket on an Italian solid 9ct yellow gold curb chain. Designed and made in Melbourne.

Morganite is the pink iteration of the Beryl family whose members include Emeralds and Aquamarine.

 The warm blush of dusky pink of our Morganite Trillionaires is made more intense by the elegant 9 carat Rose gold band.

 The 'Galaxy' band is elegantly tapered- they are thinner and taller near the top of the ring and wider near the bottom.

 There is a similar ring in our range 'Celeste' which is similar but finer and thinner. please see that option if you want a finer band or a more affordable alternative. Hand carved band - 100% made in Melbourne.

Tourmalines are famous the myriad colour variations in which they can occur. I was struck by the blue green of this pair of tourmalines that we used for our Skull Pendant. The skull was hand carved in Melbourne. The brief was 'quite realistic' but slightly stylised so as to not look gothy or heavy metal. Another fun feature is that the jaw is articulated.

Some gemstones are so beautiful they demand their own space to shine. We have created a mini collection of studs called ‘Australian Singletons’, made with Australian sapphires from the gemstone collection of @kapitalcity. Each stud is unique and is designed to be worn as a singleton or mixed in with others to make an eclectic earring layout.

Tourmaline is the birthstone for October. It is famous for the myriad of colour variations but the blues are always sought after. We have made one pair of studs from the collection of @kapitalcity. This Australian Tourmaline is from Queensland and is has a fetching emerald cut that really shows off that unique Smokey Blue colour.

This was a fun project for us with a stylish result for our client. We used the sapphires and diamonds from Connie’s grandma’s ornate ring to build a super cute modern looking band. In this small size our signature five stone ring looks chunky and fun; the gemstones really pop against the silver. 

If you have an old ring that has lovely stones and you would like to use them for a new project, please contact us to see if we can help you.

We worked on this ring for months - it was a challenge getting such a monumental sapphire to look  sleek in an epic gold setting. We wanted the sapphire to look like it was part of the ring, as if the whole thing had been pulled out of the ground. 

By the end, four people had worked on this - and the result is nothing short of spectacular.

This incredible slab like 5 carat raw Australian Sapphire is set in solid 9ct White Gold.

Designed and Made in Melbourne.

This sculptural piece is a living artwork. I have been growing little plants in crystals for the last decade but this is the first one that we are selling from the shop. This is because we were underground and also because I have been slowly perfecting the technique.
I planted a baby pilea in this amethyst cluster in January 2019. It has been living and growing happily ever since.
Pileas loves the light, they prefer bright indirect sunlight. Putting it outside it might burn if it gets too much sun.
The pilea wants to be watered moderately, but do not overwater it. The Pilea likes to dry out in-between waterings and doesn’t like to stay soggy. We have made it easier for you by suspending the crystal - making watering a simple task. This arrangement could live on your office desk quite easily.
For collection from our shop only.

'Deer Wandering Through The Forest With Dew Laden Antlers' -  a playful piece made from 9ct yellow gold and brilliant white diamonds.

Monday, July 29, 2019


If you love deep red colours you can go past this Australian garnet from NSW. We have set it in a stylish custom made sterling silver claw setting. The garnet is 1.85ct. It measures 11mm x 6.5mm. Presented on a 45cm sterling silver curb chain.

Garnets are the birthstone for January.

Australia produces almost half of the world garnets, with the rest mainly coming from India, USA, and China. Garnets have also been extracted from Broken Hill in New South Wales (see Google Arts and Culture) and Harts Ranges in Northern Territory since the 1880s, as a by-product of mining other minerals from metamorphic rocks.

One Of A Kind piece, made in Melbourne.

One of my favourite rings we’ve built this year was for Alex in Sydney. 

This minimal 18ct white gold band makes these gemstones sing - the white diamond contrasting with the lush sapphires. We chose a warmer blue to slightly mismatch the ultra vivid centre stone.
