Do you have one of those friends who are irreplaceable? A friend who is as rare and special as a priceless gem? For me, that’s my friend Emma, or ‘Em the gem’ as I like to call her. Em is full of laughter and light. We met at art school almost 20 years ago and bonded while sharing a dusty, dimly lit studio space in our final year. When it came time to make a special piece for Em’s birthday, I sat in my studio, listening to the rain beating down on the rooftop, trying to decide on something that is as special as she is. After much deliberation, I decided to engrave a sparkling gem in sterling silver, and blacken the silver with a natural sulphur oxide. This beautiful piece is made from 100% reclaimed sterling silver, with a 50cm long silver chain and a custom-made bone clasp. A precious piece for a true Gem.
|Material:||Blackened Sterling Silver|

“Laura was attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She is very friendly and easy to deal with, communicating through the process with sketches, test models and the finer details. I would highly recommend Laura for any jewellery with a personal touch. It makes it all the better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
” I love and admire that sustainability and the environment are quintessential parts of the ethos at Coral Covey. I have purchased several pieces from Laura for myself and as gifts and I love the classic, elegant and fun designs. Laura is a consummate professional and skilled designer and jeweller.”
“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
