Exquisite wedding inspiration website The Lane hosted a stunning celestial celebration of jewels, astrology and champagne with New York based jewellery designer Anna Sheffield at XO Studios in Melbourne. It was a sublime spring evening in an intimate and sun-drenched setting, where towers of clear quartz and amethyst geodes sat amongst mirrored boxes filled with precious gems and breathtaking pieces of jewellery.
Anna Sheffield is a qualified Metalsmith with a background in sculpture and fine art, and her commitment to ethical production practices is reflected in the conflict free diamonds and use of reclaimed metals that she works with. Sheffield’s ‘Celestine Collection’, which was showcased on the evening, included her uniquely and intricately crafted rings, earrings and bracelets that are certain to become sought after heirloom pieces. Dearly desired by brides-to-be as the ultimate in romantic and personal engagement rings, Sheffield has been prized for her masterful ability to infuse personality, history and romance into her creations.
The designs are truly heart-stirring, with magnificent centrepiece rings displaying semi-precious and precious gems, from blackened rutilated quartz to astonishingly beautiful white, grey, black and champagne diamonds (which are the artist’s favourite to work with) set in gorgeous yellow, rose and white gold. Cleverly designed stack rings work as a compliment to the centre rings or can be worn on their own, such is their beauty. This is jewellery to fall deeply in love with. And what’s more, you can design your own ring in consultation with Sheffield for a truly one-of-a-kind piece.
The event was a gorgeous affair, with catering by Food & Desire, complete with a ridiculously delicious dessert bar that boasted pieces of dark chocolate with raspberry and silver candy; white chocolate with dried rose petals and pistachio; and milk chocolate with candied violet. There were also to-die-for chocolate ganache brownies with gold leaf and scrumptious canapes and oysters, all complimented by 6ft6 wines and gold rimmed agate coasters by Haute Co.
Thank you to The Lane and to Anna Sheffield for having us!
