This Christmas, long established Lincolnshire jeweller S.T.Hopper of Boston have collaborated with the multi award winning jewellery designer Andrew Geoghegan. This partnership has created a totally unique design to reflect the heritage and history of the firm. The simple Art Deco inspired design harks back to a time in 1926 when Stanley T Hopper first threw open his doors in the historic Market Town of Boston.
The ring itself is beautifully crafted in 18ct white gold and set with a stunning aquamarine to the centre, flanked on each shoulder by exquisite round brilliant cut diamonds. To the benefit of S T Hopper, the diamonds for the piece were retrieved from dated stock rings thus adding a further profitability to the project.
James Hopper says: “The choice of aquamarine was an easy one, it’s long been a favourite for vintage jewellery, but with the more recent Royal Wedding and the ‘Diana Ring’ that the Duchess of Sussex was seen wearing on the evening of her wedding has meant that Aqua has seen a huge renaissance. For S T Hopper to be able to join forces with an outstanding designer such as Andrew Geoghegan was a fantastic opportunity for us as a firm to show just what we are all about. We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome”
Andrew Geoghegan says: “I knew when I created the first iterations of the design that we had something special – beautifully simple, wonderfully deco and totally unique. This ring style is only available at S T Hopper and both myself and the Hopper team both believe it is perfect for jewellery lovers – especially those who have penchant for Art Deco. On the success of the collaboration we have both decided to offer the piece in many other gemstones including diamond, sapphire, ruby, emerald, amethyst to mention a few.”
