The inspiration behind the oakleaf collection is evident in the vibrant autumnal coloured gemstones Barbara Tipple personally chooses to set into the handmade oak leaf designs.
Delicate oak leaves and acorns are intricately hand carved into the finest quality metals such as gold, platinum and sterling silver. The sophisticated oak leaf design is one of our most timeless collections. A real conversational piece you will love to wear on any occasion.
Inspired by the natural colour palette of autumn the oak leaf collection is adorn with colour. Rich tones of gold set with vibrant green peridot and tourmalines. Barbara hand chooses every precious gemstone that us set into the designs. The size, colour and shape of the gemstone will determine if it will be set into a ring, earrings or a pendant.
One of Barbara’s favourite pieces from the oakleaf collection is the Peridot ring. A one-of-a-kind sugar loaf peridot, set into an 18ct yellow gold ring featuring the classic oakleaf design. Delicate oak leaves and acorns are skilfully carved into the design by our talented master craftsmen.
