Jewels of the Night

Daytime is for the ordinary activities of life, the ones you have to do. But nighttime is what you make it, and when the sun sets, the shimmering moon presides. Emile Shapiro's rainbow moonstone earrings evoke this lunar mood. The vintage-inspired, 24-facet rose cut enhances the natural inner glow of the stone. Resembling a midnight sky surrounding a full moon, a halo of sapphires is cast in place with an ancient Egyptian technique that embeds them in molten, 14-karat recycled gold. Handmade in New York.

“A goal is just a dream without a deadline.”

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."
