The holidays and sparkle go hand in hand. One of the city's inspiration destinations is Gump's, with its glittering windows and luxurious gifts. This season, a new collaboration brings even more shine to Gump's: An exclusive Ashley Morgan jewelry collection, replete with intricate pavé detailing and rare gemstones.
Known for her feminine, organic compositions, the partnership was, in the designer's words, "A dream come true." The collection features varicolored tourmalines, diamonds and emeralds; underlying nature themes, like German carved Beryl leaves, keep the collection down to earth. Behold the seed pearl and black diamond tassel necklace and earrings—both bold declarations of opulence.
With a Masters Symposium in Goldsmithing from the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in SF, Ashley's designs are motivated by emotion, tradition, nature and culture, rather than trends. The SF-based designer specializes in custom work, seeking to create cutting edge sophistication for every client.
Ashley Morgan can also be found in Blanc boutiques and Philanthropy, but the Ashley Morgan Gump's collection is only available in-store.
Gump's, 135 Post Street, SF; 415.982.1616
