Gemstones collected from exotic travels sparkle in stunning bangle

Sue, who had collected gem stones from her travels to some of the most remote areas of the world over many years, decided that the time was right to do something wonderful with them and came into Nicholas Wylde Bath for inspiration…

Together with items of her unworn gold jewellery, Sue sat down with our designer India to create something stunningly new from old.

The resulting torque bangle is astonishing beautiful and a veritable statement piece that would certainly inspire conversation whenever worn!

The vibrantly coloured gemstones (including diamonds, pink, yellow and green sapphires and amethyst) were collected from places like Syria and Northern Pakistan and Sue commented: “I was lucky enough to have visited these places when it was still possible to safely do so.”
