Over years and years and years and years, the sea coaxes rough but harmonious shapes out of pebbles, shells and bits of reef. As anyone who’s ever walked along a stony beach knows, these unique little fragments of the earth are often picked up, admired, put in pockets – Monica Vinader does the jewellery designer’s version of this, and uses them as the basis for her Nura collection. From this, the 18ct yellow-gold vermeil Reef ring is gently curved, ideal for stacking with others.
Monica Vinader’s luxurious but accessible pieces are beloved worldwide for their understated aesthetic. Born in San Sebastian, Spain, Monica is an artist, adventurer and designer. Her pieces are now made using only recycled gold and silver and sustainably sourced gemstones, diamonds and pearls.
