A freedom of expression can be found purely by exploring outside of one’s own natural habitat – through literature or travel we stumble upon newfound paradises.
For over two decades Greig Porter has traveled off the beaten path in search of lustrous gems. In sphalerite, garnet and zircon he reveals an oasis of color.
Sphalerite’s dispersion, the “fire” created as light passes through exquisite gemstones, can be three times that of a typical diamond – releasing a miniature light show within each stone.
Garnets, though most commonly encountered in a deep red color, can be found in all manner of shades. Seen here in a peachy mandarin variety, they pair well with sapphires and citrines of a similar hue.
An esteem for color and clarity is evident throughout Greig Porter’s collections – earthy diamond, tropical aquamarine and verdant emerald all find a home within his workshop.
Each piece, set in 18K or 22K gold, speaks to a lifetime of travel and an appreciation for adventure in every form it comes in.
