Designers probed the ocean’s depths and plundered seafaring myths for inspiration when creating these stunning jewels. David Webb brings Neptune to life in a carved yellow gold and platinum brooch, embellished with green enamel, pearls and precious stones. Monica Rich Kosann’s playful octopus has diamond eyes and swinging tentacles. London-based designer Elizabeth Gage carved a 32.80 carat aquamarine with intaglio fish in rippling water to create a stunning ring. Syna encases approximately 18 carats of turquoise in a yellow gold turtle shell, which can be worn on a chain as a necklace or as a brooch. Van Cleef & Arpels showcases its skilled craftsmen with nearly 20 carats of sparkling pink sapphires and diamonds on a starfish brooch. Mother of pearl, sugilite and rock crystal, highlighted by diamonds, create mesmerizing conch shell earrings from Vhernier.
