New York based Valani specialises in innovative and responsibly sourced bespoke pieces. Heena Shah, Valani’s designer, has a love of emeralds – favouring special cuts for her intricate rings – and her insistence on the integrity of every component means Gemfields’ responsibly sourced coloured gemstones are ideal for
her new collections.

The Andromeda and Temps Perdu collections are inspired by nostalgia. The Andromeda series took shape after a moment’s discovery of a shared fascination with celestial formations by Heena and her son. The collection attempts to capture a glimpse of the galaxy with magnificent gemstones. Temps Perdu draws upon floral and lace motifs, handcrafted to amplify the beauty of the centre gem. “Sourcing emeralds and rubies from Gemfields supports Valani Atelier’s mission of responsible sourcing and transparency in the jewellery industry,” explains Heena. “Collaborating with people around the world to create incredibly rich pieces in a sustainable way that is equitable and uses materials responsibly is the most
 rewarding aspect of my career.” Valani makes its Couture Las Vegas debut with a stunning array of Zambian emeralds and Mozambican rubies.

The bewitching Crosby Pair earrings feature two mesmerising Zambian emeralds, totalling 6.71ct, while the Arduin Ruby Set presents an arresting array of over 11ct of perfectly matched rubies with 6ct diamonds set in 18k white gold.

Gemfields has collaborated with Misahara, the New York fine jewellery house, in three one-of-a-kind new designs for Misahara’s bespoke TIME Collection, dedicated to our most elusive and precious commodity. And time is an essential element in Gemfields’ Zambian emeralds, which were forged more than 450 million years ago deep in the Earth’s crust.
Lepa Galeb-Roskopp, Mishara’s founder and designer, was inspired by protecting Mother Earth. Her designs honour the passing of time to call attention to the sustainability issues facing the world. It’s a philosophy dear to Gemfields, which strives for a positive impact on the countries that host its mining operations, from benefiting the communities around the mines to funding vital conservation work to protect Africa’s

“Misahara is committed to using only the highest quality gemstones and working with Gemfields has allowed us access to the very best the world has to offer," says Lepa. “I also prefer to use gemstones with spectacular intense colour that provide an added aura of sophistication."

The handcrafted suite features the Serene Eyes Ring, with 10.67ct emeralds and .80ct white diamonds set in 18k oxidised yellow gold; Calming Climbers Earrings, with 3.01ct emeralds and .20ct white diamonds set in 18k yellow gold and the Waterfall Necklace, with 6.27ct emeralds and white diamonds set in 18k yellow gold. Misahara’s measure of future success is based on sustainable practices at every level of the supply chain. The house asserts: “Doing so requires reliable partners that are extremely trustworthy; we feel confident we have such a partner in Gemfields.”

The fine jewellery House of Paul Morelli is rooted in his parents’ family tradition of hand stitched theatre costumes. Paul Morelli’s luxury fine jewellery - from made-to-order, to timeless classics, to signature pieces – blends this tradition with current influences. Paul explains, “I select Gemfields’ magnificent emeralds for one-of-a-kind designs. Each hand-crafted piece is set and customised in creative coordination with the
dazzling gem.”

For 35 years, his made-in-America fine jewellery has been sought after by celebrity stylists, luxury retailers and discerning clientele around the world and this year’s showstopper, his newest piece, is no exception. On display at Couture Las Vegas for the first time, this dazzling ring features a 5.88ct Zambian emerald framed by 7 carats of diamonds set in platinum. Paul’s fascination with emeralds is rooted in their history. “Emeralds have been sought after and prized for centuries. Ancient civilisations independently held this quintessentially green gemstone in the highest
