Mozambico’s rubies, and diamonds, for bracelets and earrings by Ortaea ♦ ︎
Ortaea is a brand founded in London that combines the Latin word Ortus which means origin, new beginnings and ancestry, and the name Gea, the goddess of the Earth and of Creation in Greek mythology. The idea is by Mita Vohra, who launched the jewelry brand in 2016 –
The founder of Ortaea is the director of Sarova Hotels Kenya, and she sits on the boards of various property development companies and is a Trustee of the Sandy Vohra Foundation. And so, she has maintained a special contact with Africa. Also for this reason, perhaps, she has launched new jewels with rubies from Mozambique, Vivid Red or Pigeon: they are less common stones and therefore more expensive. The new Ortaea’s Mozambique ruby collection earrings are combined with white diamonds that fall symmetrically in a cascade. The earrings are coordinated with bracelets made in the same way. The new collection is available from Harvey Nichols, a luxury department store in Knightsbridge, London.
