Here’s another great work-in-progress series of photos by a designer working with Greenlandic gems: @christinehuberdesign .
Christine is an accomplished gouache artist who has designed and made jewelry for some of New York’s most venerable jewelers. Gouache is the opaque watercolor paint traditionally used to render the finest jewelry designs, with a history going back over 600 years.
Are you a designer interested in working with our responsibly sourced gems, from an amazing new Arctic location near the top of the earth? Contact VP Sales/Marketing Hayley.Henning@greenlandruby.gl. to learn more! Hayley is on left in third photo, showing Christine a large piece of Greenlandic rough in matrix.
For #RubyTuesday, Greenland Ruby brings you a magnificent pendant created by intrepid gem adventurer Gavin Linsell, of the Gem Adventurer, the newest brand to use Greenlandic gems.
Gavin created the pendant as a personal talisman, to honor Geri and Freki, the two wolves who accompany the god Odin, famous in Norse mythology for pursuing knowledge. Made in 925 Sterling Silver, it features two Greenlandic ruby cabochons as the wolf's eyes.
Gavin is of Nordic stock, with roots in the ancient Hjaltland, which is the old Norse name of the Shetland Islands. Did you know the Vikings colonized these islands, starting in the 8th century? They didn't become part of Scotland until the 15th century. So Gavin feels a special connection to the island of Greenland, too, also once inhabited by Vikings.
To honor his heritage, you'll see that Gavin has arranged his pendant with his Viking axe and long sword in the second photo. Finally, we see Gavin at his Viking best, with his pendant and axe at the ready!
We're delighted to welcome to the ranks of brands carrying Greenland Ruby gems: Mr Gem Adventurer himself, Gavin Linsell, from Gem Adventurer, a Bangkok-based gemstone and jewelry company specializing in themed, guested events on home shopping television networks around the globe.
Gavin, an incredible world traveler and gem expert, debuted the Juwelo Greenland Ruby Jewelry Collection to viewers this weekend on the Juwelo home shopping network in Germany.
Juwelo is a division of Berlin-based elumeo Group, the leading European company in the electronic distribution of high-quality gemstone jewelry.
Enjoy this video view of a gorgeous ring from the collection. #ruby#greenlandrubies#rubiesfromgreenland#greenland#Greenlandic#pinksapphire#responsiblegemstones#responsiblysourcedrubies#responsiblysourced#gemadventurer
As we near the end of International Inuit Day, we celebrate Inuit cultures everywhere, including the Kalaallit Nunaat of Greenland, who work at our mine.
Here are some female faces of Greenland from the past, at the Greenland National Museum in Nuuk. These are faces of character, fortitude, and strength. There are stories in these faces, and history, and legacy.
Here's a selection of luscious rough, cabochon and faceted Greenlandic gems, after being expertly heat treated with borax, a very standard process among precious gems such as ruby. No lead glass or other filler is ever added to our gems!
Greenland Ruby uses treatment to heal minute fractures sustained during our gems' making or mining -- from within the very hard rock where they are embedded. This healing process makes them look better and adds to their durability.
Our field gemologist @vincent_pardieu, who took this great photo, is in the process of finalizing a wonderful new educational field documentary that he created with Didier Barriere from @nomads_media, entitled "Greenland Rubies: A Story from Ice to Fire," which shows exactly how, where and why Greenland Ruby's heat treatment is conducted. The film had its premiere at the International Colored Gemstone Association's conference in Bangkok a few weeks ago. Stay tuned for its wider debut!
We are so delighted to welcome @tuameajewelry to the Greenland Ruby client list. The brand's pretty designs do honor to our gems!
