Earrings ‘tapered box’ © Bh – princess cut 9mm Topaz 2=8.0ct – oxidised 925 silver – claw set 18ct yellow gold – post and butterfly fittings. I could rattle off the names of many clients who count on these as everyday wear. The other two pairs in bright silver boxes with 18ct yellow gold setting tabs have the lighter gem tones of Aquamarine and green Quartz.

Barbara is respected amongst her international peers as ‘Ms Texture’. There is a delicate balance between the high carat metal used, the lace impression that pierces the surface of the gold, the sparse use of white enamel fusion, the unique arrangement of quality gems set into the dish and the fine shouldered shank.
