RAPAPORT... The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) named Frankfurt-based Marina Jacob’s ‘Crushed Ice’ ring as the winner of this year’s Gem Empathy Award.

Jacob, a designer and manufacturer of fine diamond and gem set jewelry, designed the stunning ring with a 13.83 ct green beryl and 30 baguette diamonds.

“I am absolutely overwhelmed by winning this award, especially because Gem-A so clearly recognized the very essence of this design, which harks back to the roots of our profession,” Jacob said.

Gem-A’s Gem Empathy award is presented annually on the last day of International Jewellery London to the exhibitor displaying, in the opinion of the judges, a single piece or collection of jewelry that makes captivating use of one or more gemstones and provides accurate ethical descriptions as well as displaying creativity and imagination.
