Gübelin Mystical Garden Collection – Jewellery inspired by the inner world of green coloured gems

This autumn/ winter, the family-owned House of Gübelin is diving deep into the interior of green coloured gems and presenting Mystical Garden. The fascinating creations from this world of jewellery are based on the spectacular inner world of green gems.

Mystical Garden

Green gems such as emeralds and beryls, which harbour plant-like shapes within them, evoking images of trees and flowers, have inspired Gübelin to create Mystical Garden. This world also includes the Ancient Path and Ornament of Flowers lines.

Ancient Path

The inner world of emeralds forms the basis for the Ancient Path line.  Microphotography of the gemstones reveals their inner beauty. Ancient Path was inspired by these shapes that are notable for their geometric structure, where nature displays its innate precision. Miniscule droplets, enclosed within the emerald as it forms, have adapted to the crystalline structure and now create a surprisingly exact pattern. Designers have taken these as inspiration for earrings that are centred around the gem.

The elegant Ancient Path white gold earrings are set with two intense green emeralds as well as brilliant-cut diamonds. Both emeralds in classical step cut are perfectly matched and display the typical inner world of Colombian emeralds. The origin of coloured gems is of key importance. The source of the most renowned and coveted gems is no doubt Colombia. This South American nation has been known for centuries for its emerald mining. Colombian emeralds are noted for their intense, deep colours, a saturated, slightly bluish-green.

Ornament of Flowers

The Ornament of Flowers line is based on the enchanting play of colours contained inside a gem. Within the gem, light is reflected by a thin liquid layer, creating a pattern that radiates in the most varied shades of colour. The designers have drawn their inspiration from this wonder of nature and created a platinum necklace centred around a glittering Colombian emerald of 2.84 ct. An entourage of diamonds in various cuts and shapes surrounds the coloured gem, lending the piece its brilliance. Round emeralds in this size and quality are extremely rare. Colombian emeralds are especially sought after  –  as with this necklace.

 The inner world of gemstones

Immersing yourself into the inner world of select coloured gems, you will find a hidden, magical world of colours, shapes and structures known as inclusions. They are both the fingerprint of each gem and serve to indicate its identity, authenticity and origin. But these internal shapes within the gem do not just offer clues to its character; they are also fascinating for their individual aesthetic appeal. Inclusions in emeralds are known as “jardin”. Eduard Josef Gübelin (1913–2005) is renowned as one of the leading gemmologists of the 20th century. One of his numerous publications includes the following comment about emeralds:

“The gardens of the emerald awaken the desire to wander at will, delighting eternally in the fantastic, constantly changing wealth of designs in their evergreen vaults.”

(Eduard Josef Gübelin)
