Jewellery meets technology: Gemfields partners with Savelli to launch limited edition emerald smartphones

Fusing fine jewellery and technology, Savelli has teamed up with Gemfields to create two of the most luxurious smartphones in the world, available at Harrods.

The Savelli Emerald Insane smartphone in white gold is set with 75 baguette-cut Gemfields emeralds (4.5ct) and approximately 870 brilliant-cut diamonds

Swiss jewellery brand Savelli has teamed up with leading coloured stone supplier Gemfields to launch two emerald-set smartphones.

Based in Geneva, Savelli is a new company that merges technology with luxury craftsmanship, just like its latest creations. Unveiled at Harrods fine jewellery room last month, the two limited-edition smartphones are set with the finest Gemfields Zambian emeralds.

The first smartphone, called Emerald Night, features 400 brilliant-cut emeralds set in gold and is limited to 19 pieces, while the second, entitled Emerald Insane, is decorated with 75 baguette-cut emeralds on white gold and limited to just eight pieces.

Setting emeralds on the curvaceous contours of a smartphone proved to be a complex task. Each stone had to be specifically cut and colour-matched to ensure a seamless design.

"This exclusive, limited-edition collection perfectly embodies the harmony of technology and jewellery craftsmanship," says Savelli founder and CEO Alessandro Savelli. "The partnership between Savelli and Gemfields demonstrates our ability to surprise by creating a unique and elegant accessory that is set with responsibly sourced gemstones."

Savelli phones are the first luxury smartphones dedicated to women. Created as a precious piece of jewellery, they feature the latest technology.

"We are delighted to be working with Savelli, a company that is leading the way when it comes to combining beauty and technology. Not only do we appreciate the skill and craftsmanship that has gone into setting the gems, but we are really excited to see emeralds being used in a smartphone, elevating technology to greater levels of luxury," said Gabriella Harvey, Gemfields Director of cut and polished gemstones.

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.
