A collection of desirable and contemporary gemrock jewellery. Due to the nature of the stones each one is unique however Heidi can source similar pieces in the same type of stones.
Gemrocks is a Jewellery collection which showcases a broad spectrum of attractive and unusual semi-precious stones. Natural, geological processes have created these in seemingly infinite variations of colour and patterns and they look beautiful.
There are around 300 types of minerals that have been used as gemstones in jewellery at some stage and of course precious gemstones such as natural Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Tanzanite have an appeal of rarity paired with stunning beauty which will endure.
However, as you will within the Gemrock Jewellery collection, there are many other semi-precious stones which exhibit patterns and colours in stone types which are often opaque but so colourful and unusual that they can really capture the imagination.
The pieces are set within stylish sterling Silver which really shows off the natural complexities of the stones. Who would have thought that the blue spots displayed in the K2 Granite ring are entirely natural?
The Gemrock Jewellery collection really is diversely colourful and these pieces make perfect gestures and gifts.
