Based in the vibrant Brazilian city of Rio, H.Stern was founded in 1945 by German émigré Hans Stern, who was nicknamed “the king of diamonds and coloured gemstones” by Time magazine. Dazzling Brazilian gemstones are still at the heart of the company, which is renowned the world over for its stylish jewellery collections inspired by the arts, architecture, music and fashion. Stern means “star” in German and the jewellery house has developed a star-cut diamond that is now one of its signature designs, along with “Noble Gold”, a unique, patented blend of metals. These morganite butterfly earrings are part of the Rock Season collection that celebrates the rich and colourful wildlife found in nature. Crafted from rose gold, they feature four pear-shaped morganite drops, weighing a total of 14.33cts, as well as 88 round-cut diamonds.
