June 12th is an important day for Amrapali, one of India's most prolific jewellers, as they launch their new Panna emerald collection, that features ethically-sourced Zambian emeralds by Gemfields, one of the world's premier gemstone producers. The collection's name is derived from the Hindi word for emerald, which is apt for this collection that puts emeralds centre stage. Emeralds that are symbols of power, hope, and beauty are combined unmistakebly Indian design for an arresting effect.

Amrapali has served many royal families over the past decades, so it is fitting that the designs in this collection are inspired by the jewels of the Maharajas of old that they commissioned grand European jewellers to create as well as their very own ornate style of jewels. Now the circle is complete and the tables turned, with Amrapali being the only Indian jewellers able to make their jewellery entirely within their own workshops in Jaipur. As you can see from this new collection, they are all about infusing centuries old Indian jewellery-making traditions with a Western twist.

These highly decorative jewels are testament to the time and admirable workmanship invested in each one. Take the multi-strand Zambian emerald and white diamond necklace with silver silk fastening or the Zambian emerald and diamond four leaf earrings; the vibrant emerald hues and handcrafted quality make these as much ancient ornaments as they are modern jewellery. And it's not just delicious the greens on show here, thanks to Gemfields we have deep red hues too, such as on the yellow gold and silver ruby and diamond necklace with Zambian emeralds and white diamond drop details and chandelier-like yellow gold ruby, Zambian emerald and diamond three drop earrings.

It's the combination of Amrapali's unquestionable heritage of Indian craft and design with Gemfield's renowned emeralds that makes this a cut above collections hoping to achieve a similar effect. It's not just the fact that these stones are sourced by Gemfields, a company that prides itself on being ethically and environmentally aware, but the quality of the emeralds Gemfields provides is consistently high and carefully graded. 

Notable also as the first Indian jeweller to be included in Harrods Fine Jewellery Room, the Panna collection will preview in Amrapali's Beauchamp Place boutique and Harrods Fine Jewellery room from Tuesday 12th June.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
