About this Item

Make a statement with this elegant cocktail ring!

The Pietra cocktail ring has a contemporary and unique design. 

This original and distinctive ring is set in 18ct Gold Vermeil and features a large Chrysoprase gemstone. The baguette-cut precious gemstone has a striking raised prong setting on a wide ring shaft. 

The linear stone cut and setting is contrasted by several organic, interwoven ring bands. 

This original designer piece has been ethically handmade by our artisan craftsmen using only the finest precious metals. We only apply natural precious and semi-precious stones that have been hand-selected by our creative director.

Our jewellery is presented in a branded Neola gift box.

This ring is a perfect gift or treat for you.

Available also in Sterling Silver with Green Amethyst (pale clear green), Aqua Chalcedony (opaque pastel blue), Rose Quartz (pastel pink), and Labradorite (grey gemstone with green or blue shimmers).

The gemstones are all natural and therefore vary slightly in colour intensity. No piece is the same, they all have their unique beauty.

18ct Gold Vermeil on Sterling Silver

It is advisable to protect your jewellery from chemicals, perfume, and extreme heat to keep them looking their best.

ETHICS

We know how our materials are sourced and processed, and the working conditions that they were made in and strive for the highest standards.

Ever since we have started our business we have been working in close partnership with one family-run supplier. Our supplier is committed to the highest ethical and sustainability standards. Our supplier is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJA) and Code of Practice certified. The RJC provides the most comprehensive international framework for compliance and focuses on best practices around health and safety, human rights, fair labour, governance, environmental protection. 

Members have an obligation to only source the most sustainable materials. Responsible sourcing means considering social and environmental factors when choosing suppliers or sourcing materials. Thereby avoiding materials that are obtained through practices that cause overconsumption and increased pollution.  

Our supplier is also a member of United Nation Global Compact and is ISO 18001 guaranteeing high health and safety standards for everyone involved in the making of our jewellery. They are also ISO 9001 certified to regulate their statutory and regulatory requirements.

Ethical jewellery does not exploit the people who help to make it, providing fair living wages and safe and ethical working conditions. This also means supporting equality, diversity and inclusion within the workforce.

There are many potential hazards involved in mining and gem cutting, including the use of toxic chemicals. Choosing ethical jewellery means rejecting these dangerous practices and supporting safer environments for employees.

Every piece of our jewellery is handcrafted in limited editions by talented artisans in a workshop in India, Rajasthan. Each expert jeweller is a master in their intricate craft, applying expertise passed on over generations. 70% of our partner’s workforce are women with equal opportunities for people with disabilities.

Responsible Jewellery

We only work with precious metals, natural gemstones, and freshwater pearls that are sourced in a responsible way. We don’t use any inferior metals, such as brass or harmful metals, such as Nickel. Our supplier works to stringent social, ethical and environmental standards.

All of our jewellery is handcrafted in premium 18ct Gold Vermeil or Sterling Silver. Gold Vermeil is made to last and highly durable, which makes it superior to basic gold plating.

Precious Metals

Our Gold Vermeil jewellery has a thicker layer of min. 3 microns gold added to the base of Sterling Silver (the thickness of the gold must be a minimum of 2.5 microns to be classified as Gold Vermeil). Our Gold Vermeil jewellery is also stamped with the '925' mark to indicate the Sterling Silver purity. The plating process is different as well. Gold Vermeil is plated with a process known as electrolysis, making the jewellery very durable. All our Sterling Silver jewellery is Rhodium plated, which is a member of the Platinum family. This adds a bit of luxury and provides a strong and protective layer against tarnishing and ensures lustre and durability.
