    RUSSELL JONES

    A true artisan, Russell Jones crafts every element of his jewelry by hand. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Russell pursued a successful career as an editorial illustrator and web designer in New York City before turning full-time to his true passion, jewelry design. In his work, Russell favors gemstones in their natural, untouched state, such as uniquely shaped pearls and raw tourmalines. He embeds them in clean, simple settings, which he sketches in elaborate renderings before beginning working with the materials. Russell counts historical jewelry as one of his influences and often incorporates playful elements from antique designs such as his signature mismatched “King and Queen” earrings. Russell currently splits his time between his studio in Hudson, New York, and teaching jewelry design and rendering at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

    The delicate, barely-there setting allows the sumptuous red rubies to take center stage. Pair these with any look for a boost of sophistication and glamour.
