Muzo Emerald Colombia, the world’s leading producer of responsibly sourced emeralds, debuts a new e-commerce & educational website and capsule collection. The website will also function as an educational tool to bring awareness to Colombian Emeralds, taking visitors on a
journey through the Muzo process, including its state-of-the-art mining operation and dedicated workforce.
Muzo is also working to drive awareness of The Muzo Foundation, whose mission serves to transform the Western Boyacá region of Colombia through early childhood education, training schools, higher education scholarships, community dining for the elderly, school and family farms, cocoa crops, strengthening grassroots organizations, empowering community leaders and establishing a health post. A portion of proceeds from Muzo’s ongoing designer collaborations will raise money for select programming.
“Transparency and philanthropy are at the core of our business and we are thrilled to have created new channels to help drive awareness of these efforts. Despite a challenging year, we have remained committed to giving back to the local environment and people – we recognize that there would be no Muzo without Colombia and our incredible mining community.” – Gabbi Harvey, Muzo Head of Business Development.
The web platform features a range of new jewelry, including Muzo’s latest signature collection, ‘Nova’ as well as an ultra-spirited capsule set from longtime collaborator, Mercedes Salazar. In addition, visitors can gain access to its ‘Green Jewel’ collection – a line of exquisite high jewelry designs created in collaboration with Argyle Pink Diamonds, as well as an archive of its celebrated designer collaborations from such partners as Harwell Godfrey, Katherine Jetter, Loren Nicole, Nina Runsdorf, Robinson Pelham and Silvia Furmanovich.
A new take on Muzo’s Signature jewelry collection, the Nova line honors the rich tradition of rare and precious emeralds, with on-trend silhouettes crafted in 18K yellow and white gold and accented with diamonds. The pieces range in price from $5,000 for a classic emerald shank ring flanked by diamonds to $40,000 for a pair of diamond leaf earrings with two Muzo pear drop earrings weighing 3.52 carats.
