Ode to Enchanted Light by Alexandra Mor captures the brilliance of aquamarines

Inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda, an electrifying 27.24ct Asscher cut aquamarine steals the show in New York jeweller Alexandra Mor's latest creation.

Alexandra Mor's one-of-a-kind Ode to Enchanted Light aquamarine ring.

We had to give you a peek at New York demi-couture jeweller Alexandra Mor's latest creation, "An Ode to Enchanted Light". This one-of-a-kind ring was commissioned by a private collector as part of Alexandra's made-to-order service. Try as we might, we can't take our eyes off that quite spectacular 27.24ct Asscher cut aquamarine.

The stepped Asscher cut is most commonly reserved for diamonds, but it works spectacularly here, the light refracting like a mirror off of the 58 facets to reveal the inner depths of that electrifying aquamarine.

Inspired by the Pablo Neruda poem of the same name, which features the memorable line, "The world is a glass overflowing with water", Mor has captured the piercing blue-green of the sea in Chile, Neruda's home country, in her choice of gemstone, which is held in place by a swirling gold and diamond setting, designed in Mor's signature style. Magnífico.

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.
