STYLISH FINE JEWELLERY FOR PRIDE MONTH 2020

We’ve rounded up a lovely collection of rainbow jewellery bright enough to cheer you up as you strike a pose!

Anna Sheffield Flat Band 

Jewellery designers are also donating to charities in honour of Pride month. New Yorker Anna Sheffield, noted for her unconventional ceremonial rings, has been busy designing rainbow jewellery, including wedding bands for men. Her flat bands in rainbow stones for men are available in yellow or white gold. “When I launched the ceremonial collection in 2011, I made sure to include rainbow gemstone bands from the start. I think of the rainbow as a beautiful aesthetic for jewellery, in addition to one that shows our support and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. It’s been an aim to also have these bands available year-round, for all gender identities, and in all ring sizes. In adding the thicker and thinner bands, as well as the nesting rings, we are making sure the options fit the personal style and that each is great for layering,” says Sheffield.

Twenty percent of proceeds from her rainbow bands are donated to the Family Equality Council. “The rainbow is a potent symbol of what lies within all light – a vast array of beauty. The rainbow of gems is a perfect way to reflect that splendour in our commitment bands. And choosing to donate to the Family Equality Council as a clear and meaningful way to highlight the priceless future heirloom that a family is, for each and every parent. We believe their work is incredibly important to realising dreams and building families within our community. We stand behind our message of love and connection being equal among all people, hence the phrase ALL FOR LOVE,” adds Sheffield.

Andrea Fohrman Rainbow Necklace 

LA-based designer Andrea Fohrman is donating 15% of proceeds from a curated selection on jewellery to the Trevor Project. “I chose to partner with The Trevor Project during Pride month because it is the leading national organisation to help provide crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to the LGBTQ community, as well as questioning youth who need a place to feel supported. The Trevor Project maps out the numbers of youth attempting suicide and struggling with mental health over their decision to ‘come out’ and/or be who they really are to the public. These young adults have to be able to speak to someone who can help guide them and listen. This organisation does that and so much more,” shares Fohrman.

Samantha Tea Circle Earring

Meanwhile, Franco-Cambodian jeweller Samantha Tea loves working with sapphires and creating rainbows. “I can create my own spectrum of colour and play around with the intensity or the gradient. This allows me to come up with one-of-a-kind combinations. I find that the rainbow is a category of colour in itself and I love to use it throughout my collections. It’s playful, magical, and inspired by the elements!” Her circle-inspired jewellery, accented with sapphires in rainbow colours, are minimalist and fun. The London-based designer’s Magic Circle 5 earring is handmade in rose gold and encrusted with rainbow sapphires and grey diamonds. “I have designed this to lay flat against the lobe, to be worn solo or as a pair or to match with our other magic circle earrings,” she adds.
