Annaloucah’s ethically designed tanzanite piece

Untitled

Award winning ethical jeweller Annaloucah evokes the nature of the materials she has chosen within her latest jewellery design.

The earrings are called ‘Arusha’ named after the mine and the design is based on both the crystal structure of Tanzanite while also referencing the entrance to the mine and the kind of bottomless nature of mining – tunnelling to the centre of the earth.

The asymmetric nature is a deliberate way of celebrating the beauty and rarity of Tanzanite in that is unusual to find two stones the same.

The metals used are Fair trade silver, white and yellow 18ct gold. The Tanzanites were ethically sourced through rubyfair.com

Annaloucah first came to prominence after working with ethically sourced materials, for the collaboration with Livia Firth for the 2011 Golden Globes.
Anna created, for Livia, a set of bespoke jewels inspired by the historical legacy of ‘The Kings Speech’, the film for which Colin Firth was nominated for Best Actor.

The “Arusha” earrings were most recently displayed at this year’s Goldsmiths Pavilion In London.
