Gemfields brand ambassador and new mum Mila Kunis has designed an emerald ring that celebrates motherhood and will raise money for charity.

Working with iconic Italian jeweller Marina B, the actress helped create the gold ring, which is set with a Gemfields Zambian emerald in the signature Marina B cut.

All profits from sales of the US$4,800 ring will go to the Nkana Health Center near Gemfields' mine in Zambia, where the money will be used to improve facilities and construct a maternity unit. 

Paul Lubetsky, CEO of Marina B, said that while the ring was created to celebrate the arrival of Mila's son Wyatt, it would also introduce the jeweller to a new generation of women.

Established in 1978 by Marina Bulgari, whose grandfather founded the famous Bulgari jewellery brand, Marina B's jewels have been worn by screen legends Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor. More recent fans include Alicia Keys, Faith Hill, Jennifer Lopez and, of course, Mila Kunis.

As the world's leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones, Gemfields regularly works with both new and established jewellery designers.

The company has previously collaborated with Marina B on a collection of emerald jewellery, and the new emerald ring is a logical progression of that partnership. "It was only natural that we would want to collaborate on a piece for our brand ambassador, Mila Kunis, as she starts her journey into motherhood," says Ian Harebottle, CEO of Gemfields. "Not only is the ring beautiful but it furthers our commitment to social responsibility."

The ring is available to order from the Marina B flagship store in New York City amd through the brand's website.

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.

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