Using her captivating, non-traditional and unorthodox technique of casting stones directly into gold, Polly Wales has hand-crafted a pair of stunning, vibrant and one-of-a-kind sapphire earrings. The surfaces of the subtly domed 18K yellow gold discs are covered in a burst of color from the multi-shaped, mixed jewel tone sapphires. Their intentionally, perfectly imperfect design was inspired by the bold color combinations found in hand-made Berber tapestries, distinctive tribal patterns and antique Persian archery rings. The unevenly edged golden discs attach to 18K yellow gold posts.

LONDON - Polly Wales studied Fine Art Sculpture before following her passion for jewelry and retraining at the Royal College of Art. Combining her skills as a sculptor, her love of traditional casting methods and her craftsmanship, she began to create one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Using sapphires, rubies and diamonds cast directly into rich gold, the end masterpieces resemble natural gem encrusted forms or sparkling geodes split open. This unorthodox approach to jewelry design has created a new and exciting niche in the world of fine jewelry design.
