Down to a Science

Throughout history, the ruby has been prized as a talisman of passion, protection, and prosperity. Today, large, fine rubies are rarely found in nature, and as a result these deep-red beauties are notoriously expensive.

Scientists in California bridge the gap between science and nature by growing these gorgeous gemstones in a laboratory using the same materials found in nature. New York City-based designer Emilie Shapiro elevates bewitching, sustainably made rubies by setting them in bold recycled brass bezels that emphasize the stones' long-cherished beauty. Handmade in New York City.

Make it a set! Pair with the matching ring and necklace.

“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."
