As you may have heard, a significant collection of Emily's diamond and sapphire jewellery was stolen over the weekend.
Showing at The Spirit of Christmas Fair in London's Olympia, Emily was packing up at the end of the day on Friday 5th November, when her show bag was snatched. The bag contained every sapphire and diamond ring, pendant and gemstone earrings created for this, Emily's first show since the pandemic began.
A small selection of the many pieces stolen:
Crafting a collection is a process that takes many months from Emily’s initial modelling stage - where she creates miniature sculpted forms in wax through to lost wax casting and painstaking finishing, hallmarking and final stone setting here in our studio on Cornwall’s north coast. Even down to the individual sourcing and selecting of her distinctive palettes of gemstones from her trusted sources in Sri Lanka, Montana and Australia, there is months of work involved for Emily and her small workshop team.
Gemstone pendants and earrings were amongst the stolen jewellery:
Emily’s designs are so distinguishable with their organic form, seaweed settings and sea worn textures - quite literally shaped by the sea - that anyone who may spot them being sold on in a suspicious way is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 or the police on 101 quoting Crime Reference Number 6025562/21.
The stolen pieces can also be identified by Emily's unique makers mark embedded into the metal on the inside of each band that reads IXO - the middle letters of her name.
If you can help us spread the word to #findemilysrings on social media we would be so thankful. We still have hope that the more the message is shared the more chance there may be to reunite Emily with her lost designs.
Designs such as Still Water Solitaire, Cornish Bay, Craggy Alaria, Platinum Sea Whip, Ebb and Flow and Laver rings amid many more are being shared to help in the search. You can follow Emily's updates on her Instagram page here.
