Love can be bittersweet, as Stephen Webster attests in a new collab.

The British designer has teamed up with Muzo Emerald Colombia on an eight-piece capsule collection called “Thorn Embrace”.

Continuing the thorn motif frequented by Webster, inspiration for the collection also comes from the most viral celebrity engagement ring seen so far in 2022.

For Webster, this lit the fire for more emerald designs and got him thinking about how best to symbolize human connection.

“‘Thorn Embrace’ felt like it summed up that fine line between pleasure and pain,” he said.

Muzo Commercial Director Gabbi Harvey added: “Stephen is an icon in our industry and there is a real synergy between our brands. He always pushes the boundaries in his design. [and] defend the color.

Featured at the Couture Show, the ‘Thorn Embrace Forbidden Fruit’ hoops are bold and romantic, a bold and untraditional representation of the many facets of romantic love.

They are crafted in 18k white gold and set with 14.26 carats of oval-shaped emeralds, 2.12 carats of diamonds and 1.52 carats of emerald accents.

Priced at $200,000, they are on display at booth 630.
