Collections

Collections

Original Eve creates fine jewelry collections inspired by unique gemstones and the beautiful way in which materials interact with light.

The gemstones used throughout the Original Eve collection are hand-selected by Eve, a certified gemologist, who loves the stories that gems tell through their unique color patterns, inclusions, and one-of-a-kind silhouettes.

 

Our gold forms are designed to complement and draw the eye to the natural beauty of the gemstones used and are inspired by landscapes and natural motifs.
