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.
