Anna Ruth Henriques is no stranger to the pages of SO. There’s always some good news to share, be it creating exquisite pieces for Hollywood A-listers like Madonna and Law & Order: SVU ’s Mariska Hargitay, or being featured in noted publications like Harper ’s Bazaar, Elle, The Tokyo Journal, O magazine and inStyle . Our last feature in 2013 focused on her Future Brilliance — a non-profit, female-led organisation dedicated to finding “innovative educational models to offer quality professional training that leads to jobs and creates new business opportunities” — Afghanistan project design competition — where Henriques helped students in Jaipur, India, develop their own jewellery collection for profit and sustainability.

This time around the talented painter, poet and author, who calls both New York and Jamaica home, is eager to share news of the Anna Ruth Henriques private launch on Wednesday, October 19, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. There’s more…

I want my wearers to feel… an emotional connection to my work. I want them to sense its beauty, mystery and authenticity. My jewellery tells stories that resonate with who we are as evolving beings, elevated by aesthetics connected to nature, and being true to one’s self and one’s path.

My collection comprises… the core collection currently comprises 60 pieces. All are made in either 14K yellow gold accented with diamonds or may be custom-ordered in white or rose gold. I also make many one-of-a-kind pieces with coloured gemstones, some of which I hand-paint. These stones include quartzes, topazes, opals, morganite, tourmalines, rubies, sapphires and emeralds.

My collection is… available in Jamaica at The Pegasus Hotel in Kingston.
