The Blushing Wing Necklace

When the inner world of a gemstone inspires the design of a unique necklace. Discover Gübelin Jewellery's Blushing Wing Necklace.

At artgenève, Gübelin Jewellery unveiled the Blushing Wing necklace. An exceptional jewel inspired by the inner world of a gem.

Every gem hides an inner world that needs to be discovered. For Gübelin Jewellery, this gem was the coveted padparadscha sapphire.

First discovered in Sri Lanka, the padparadscha is the rarest variety of sapphire, and it presents a beautiful pink and orange-coloured shades.

If observed under the microscope, the padparadscha reveals inclusions known as feathers.

It is, therefore, the observation of these feathers through photomicrography that inspired Gübelin’s designers to create the Blushing Wing necklace.

And, starting from these feathers, it is of no surprise that this necklace’s lines pay homage to Sri Lanka itself, where this sapphire was first unearthed. In fact, the necklace evokes a bird spreading its elegant wings to greet the sun.

All these gems are set on red gold, that enhances their warmth and adds to the padparadscha’s glow.

The Blushing Wing necklace is a very romantic jewel, and its delicate and interplaying shades vibrate when it is worn – a light yet important presence.

This is a necklace that speaks about Gübelin Jewellery not only because of the exceptional gems that are featured but also because of their heritage in jewellery design, which refers to Gübelin’s glamourous creations from the 1950s and 1960s.
