This September, Stephen Webster presents the Thorn Embrace Collection, celebrating a new era of modern romance. Fuelled by Webster’s long addiction with the ‘thorn’, the latest collection depicts Hollywood glamour, featuring an exciting colour palette of stones.

Collaborating with Muzo Emeralds Columbia, Thorn Embrace features exceptional Emeralds from the legendary Muzo mine. As a leading producer of the world's most exceptional Emeralds, Muzo prides itself on its CSR initiatives, emphasizing complete transparency from mine to Maison. Located in the Boyacá region of Colombia, the Muzo emerald mine employs more than 1,000 local men and women, contributing significantly to its economic growth. The company has modernized mining practices to preserve the local environment and ensure community workers' health and safety. The Muzo Foundation is proud to provide the local community with such resources as a free health clinic and local canteen. To read more click here.

The Thorn Embrace collection features a Bridal element for the modern bride who lives by the mantra; love is pain. As seen within the collection through the Duo Bands- the ring that inspired Megan Fox's engagement ring. Crafted in 18ct White Gold set with a pear shape White Diamond on one ring, and a pear shape Emerald on the other, finished with White Diamond pavé. Adding a twist of innovation and technology, Stephen Webster embeds a magnet in the shank, allowing the rings to be ‘embraced together’.

“The Thorn design has to be one of my personal favourites, always unisex with an unquestionable edge. Thorn Embrace really takes it to a new level of desirability with the addition of a magnetic combination of two pear shapes coming together, perfectly signifying a completed heart. How New Romantic is that?”
Stephen Webster, MBE.

Stephen Webster's continued love for gemstones is represented in this collection through the use of Diamonds, Emeralds, Spinels, Tanzanites, Tourmalines, Aquamarines, and Rhodolite Garnets. The attention for detail can be seen within the Forbidden Fruit Earrings featuring oval Grey, Pink and Purple Spinels- all colour matched by Stephen to create a graduated asymmetric look, finished in 18ct White Gold and White Diamond pavé.

Diamond encrusted chains create a chain reaction throughout the Thorn Embrace collection, as seen in the chokers, pendants and bracelets, crafted in 18ct White and Yellow Gold with White and Black Diamonds. The chains allow the wearer to embrace the layered look, paired perfectly with the Thorn Embrace Pear Drop Necklace with a central pear shaped Rubellite hanging from the Diamond Pavé chain.

Never ones to shy away from our past; the reintroduction of the Very Cross motif (revived from the archive). Featured within the collection through bracelets, pendants and earrings in White and Yellow Gold, with Black and White Diamond pavé.

Because no Stephen Webster collection would be complete without a Cocktail Ring, the Thorn In My Side Peardrop Ring reimagines, the often forgotten classic gemcut with modernity and style. Crafted in 18ct White and Yellow Gold, available with central Tourmalines, Emeralds, Garnets, Tanzanites, Aquamarines, Morganites and Green Tourmalines.
