A pair of exceptional earrings with morganite for over 100 carats of Jacob & co ♦ ︎
Morganite is a stone that symbolizes “divine love”. Moreover, it is a stone that according to the romantic hearts promote the affections and the spasms of the heart. With a less romantically view, however, the stone is a variety of beryl, and has a delicate pink color, more or less intense. The name morganite, in any case, does not refer to the fairy Morgana, but was conferred by the American mineralogist George Frederick Kunz in honor of the American banker active at the turn of the twentieth century John Pierpont Morgan, stone collector (and founder of one of the largest banks still in business, JP Morgan).
And here is an exceptional use of this refined stone: earrings with over 100 carats of morganite. They were presented at Baselworld by Jacob & Co, Maison of New York who often presents particularly precious pieces of jewelry. The earrings feature a total of four morganite stones. The largest weighs 93.88 carats, while the slightly smaller weighs 6.35 carats. Not only that: 98 pear-shaped diamonds, weighing a total of 8.61 carats, adorn the earrings, which are further accented with over 360 white pavé diamonds. It is almost useless to add that the Jacob & co earrings are unique pieces. Giulia Netrese
