Muzo’s emeralds for 25 designers and one hundred surprising jewels. Here is the result ♦ ︎
Put the children of colored pencils in childrens hands and you will see them draw. Give to a mechanic to screwdriver and the car will be dismantled. Distribute emeralds to a group of designers and you will see surprising jewels. This is what the Colombian mining company Muzo Emerald has done. The initiative is not strange: periodically, the mining companies give to designers their gems to special work.
Muzo has thus delivered emeralds to 25 jewelers including Alexandra Mor, Coomi, Daniela Villegas, Erica Courtney, Kimberly McDonald, Lisa Kim, Mateo, Noor Fares, Selim Mouzannar, Spencer Fine Jewelry, Victor Velyan and Wilfredo Rosado.
Result: a series of jewels that use emeralds in a very modern way. To be clear: no rings with an emerald with emerald cut. Also because the green stones have different shades and qualities. In all, a hundred pieces of different value were conceived. It ranges from about $ 2,000, to the Selim Mouzannar necklace which costs almost $ 120,000. And, according to Muzo, the experiment will continue: 2019 will be a bright green year. Margherita Donato
