Diamonds in the Rough

Emilie Shapiro’s take on the classic diamond wedding band is one of deconstructed, casual elegance through recycled gold and rough gray diamonds. Sourced from Brazil, the responsibly mined, “conflict free” diamonds that Shapiro uses get their distinctive hue from high concentrations of hydrogen. Shapiro hand-selects these diamonds for their unique imperfections and incorporates them in her designs in their natural, uncut state. Using a lost wax method, she casts each of these bands individually with gestural flair, embedding a half-circumference of smoky, crystalline stones in the setting with an organic embrace that follows their every contour. This ring celebrates the raw beauty of precious yet unrefined materials, making it a compellingly unique statement for weddings, anniversaries, or everyday indulgence. Handmade in New York.

New York

There was never a moment that Emilie Shapiro didn't consider herself an artist. "Before I could speak I expressed myself through what I made with my hands," she says. "I am so incredibly lucky that my parents allowed me to pursue life on the path I chose." That path led to a line of jewelry comprised entirely of one-of-a-kind pieces she crafts by combining her metalsmithing skills with her love of found objects. "I have a massive stone collection that I started when I was two," says the New York City resident. "I usually pull out my drawers of gems and minerals and something catches my eye that I haven't seen before or forgot about." When Emilie creates a piece, she says she imagines the wearer seeing a reflection of themselves in it—“beauty in imperfection."
