Ella Gafter Sapphire Diamond White Gold Cufflinks

$7,900

About

The cufflinks feature 2 beautiful blue Ceylon sapphires for an approximate total weight of 2.25 carats. The design is complete with 0.25 carats of diamonds of top quality (color, clarity and cut). The gold base is sanded for elegant effect. The pair is entirely hand made by gran maestro Pasquale in our own workshop in Naples, Italy, according to an original design by Ella Gafter. The cufflinks are signed EG. Ella Gafter on colored stones: "As a rule, I love precious stones when they display the right fire appropriate for their category. Therefore, I do not so much buy what is in fashion, as what strikes me as possessing a color and a shine that is of value today and forever. When I see it, I buy it.”

About the Designer

Ella Gafter

Even before Ella Gafter founded her namesake jewelry collection in 1982, she was a formidable presence in the jewelry industry.As a Rome-based gem dealer, Gafter sold pearls and precious stones to retailers and jewelers but was often dissatisfied with how they made use of the rare materials she worked so hard to source. Instead of grousing, she decided to design jewels that would do them justice, focusing primarily on pearls — akoya, Tahitian and South Sea. She explains her fascination with the lustrous marine treasures simply: “Every woman looks better with pearls than without.”Her daughter Talila Gafter, then an undergrad at Harvard, was her ally in getting the project off the ground. Together, they made the rounds to stores with Ella’s first efforts. “We had a little pouch with eight pieces and we sold everything,” Talila tells 1stDibs. After graduation, she “was involved one hundred percent” in building the company, whose pieces are handmade by master jewelers in Naples.The designer insists that her unwavering focus is the source of her success. “There’s no compromising for me,” she says. She’s been known to replace the pearls in a single piece time after time until she’s certain she’s achieved her ideal result. “A pearl you have to respect,” she explains. “You have to put it where it wants to sit.”Ella describes the collaboration with her daughter as a “partnership,” with each having her own domain. “I’m all fantasy; Talila is the concrete one,” she says. The company is now based in New York City, with Talila as its president while Ella is firmly at the helm of creative decisions. “I’ve never made a design suggestion to Ella,” says Talila. “Nobody does.”That forbearance has been earned, says Talila. “I admire that Ella doesn’t take no for an answer, her tenacity, her extraordinary ambition. She believes as long as there is life, there is a lot of beauty to create. She’s a force of nature.”Find Ella Gafter earrings, rings, necklaces and other jewelry on 1stDibs.
