Every gemstone piece at Monica Vinader is completely unique, because we only use genuine, ethically sourced gemstones. Each one has its own distinct character, and each must meet our standards of colour, pattern and cut.
Our gemstones are hand selected, hand cut from the rough, and hand checked to our exacting specification - ensuring that each piece of jewellery has vibrant, natural beauty.
Each of our gemstones has a meaning attached to it, so you can create a unique look that also tells a story. Kyanite, for example, is linked to the Libra Zodiac sign, and denotes loyalty. Or Moonstone, sourced in India, is associated with with the Cancer Zodiac sign, and is said to have 'nourishing' properties. Whether you're buying for yourself, or gifting to someone else, gemstones help it mean more.
Our gemstones are sourced from all four corners of the globes - from Brazil to India, Canada to Russia, and China to Madagascar. Individual gems are then hand picked by experts for their colour, pattern and cut, considering the unique character of each stone, so that every new piece of jewellery is as special as the last.
Our gemstones are carefully hand cut from the rough into a set of organic shapes, drawn by our designers, to preserve a sense of their natural beauty. Hand cutting each stone means that we can also work with their natural character and inclusions, to ensure the best of the gem is revealed.
Each piece of Monica Vinader jewellery is carefully handcrafted. This means that every gemstone is set in place by hand - making sure that they are set firm for durability, but also fit seamlessly and naturally into their setting.
