Jewelry designer Stuart McGrath is the founder and designer of Armoura, a jewellery line featuring both contemporary and traditional themes.
McGrath’s background and training are in sculpture having studied and worked in Dublin, London and Italy over a 14 year period – he uses these the same principles of form, proportion and craftsmanship in his jewelry and the designs range from starkly modern to highly detailed and ornate, some feature animals, others allow the stones to feature prominently. His venture into jewelry design occurred after a life changing accident that took him off his path as a master stone carver based in Ireland. These jewellery designs are a progression of his sculptural work that channels his creativity and pushes ideas along with materials bringing the stones and metal to life to tell a story. After years of designing collections for other companies with his own contemporary jewellery called ARMOURA, his pieces are inspired by travel, architecture, nature and landscape showing edgy and creative concepts. All of these new and exciting pieces are crafted from yellow gold, white gold and platinum along with precious and semi precious stones. Among Armoura’s collections you’ll find iconic pieces such as the Glacier Ring, Rainforest Ring, Emerald Star necklace, Giant Elk Necklace, Deco Tower ring and other inspired designs; these distinctive pieces are designed to be memorable, natural wonders in life that deserve to be celebrated and captured in exotic materials sculpted into a suitable design.
