Having established Stonechat in 2012, and seen many customers pass through her doors since then, Ann is well aware of the emotional resonance of jewellery. “Jewellery is a wonderful conversation starter,” she says. “Customers tell us their emotional stories every day. I wanted the Stepping Stones collection to reflect these personal journeys”.

Inspired by people’s resilience and their ability to keep moving forward through "good times and bad", the stepping stones in the collection represent the large or small steps that people take through life and the small or large achievements that can be celebrated. “A step can be big or small - life is not a straight road and there can be bumps along the way,” says Ann.

The Stepping Stones contemporary Irish jewellery collection includes rings, pendants, earrings and a bangle - all handcrafted in silver, gold, rose gold and diamonds. As the designer explains: “Flush set diamonds symbolise highlights along the way and the small and large ‘stones’ can be considered individual events or achievements.”

Each purchase of an item from the Stepping Stones collection comes with a beautiful notebook hand-bound by Duffy’s Bookbinders, encouraging the recipient to write down their thoughts. Ten percent of the sales of the collection will go to Aware, supporting people with depression and bipolar disorder.
