What I love about this time of the year is knowing Summer is near and I get to go on holiday but also, new collections!
Jamie Joseph newest collection is amazing. She has recently launched The Golden Joinery Collection with magical stones fused together with 22K gold. Extraordinary if you’re asking me.

Initially featuring rings, earrings and necklaces, this luxury selection highlights gemstones are fused together with 22K gold much like the traditional Japanese art of mending pottery – Kintsugi.
Known for her hand-picked gemstones each one is also hand-cut and re-polished in the Jamie Joseph Studio. In this hand-cutting & polishing process, gemstones do occasionally fracture leaving behind unusually shaped remnants of spectacular color and quality. The art of Kintsugi allows the designer to up-cycle and rethink the casualties of design. It offers something new and innovative in the fine jewelry space all the while creating a new sustainable approach to material sourcing.
Marrying the gemstones in this innovative technique further adds to the artisanal signature for which
Jamie Joseph is renowned. Open-back settings showcase a thoughtful 360-degree composition with golden-joined fissures. Not only the stones make the pieces look unique but also the fissures!
Love this craftmanship.
