Gemfields Global Ambassador, Mila Kunis, and Marina B have joined together to create an emerald ring in celebration of motherhood. To honor this precious gift, Gemfields, the leading supplier of responsibly sourced colored gemstones, gave Mila the opportunity to design a ring with Marina B. One hundred percent of the profit from the sale of the Marina B and Gemfields ‘Mila’ Motherhood ring will be donated to the Gemfields Nkana Health Center in Zambia, in support of an upgrade and the addition of a maternity clinic.
“Carrying a child and bringing new life into the world marks the start of an incredible journey. Throughout history, every culture has its own way of recognising this extraordinary event, often with a gift for mother or child. Precious green emeralds are traditionally symbols of motherhood, wisdom, and long-lasting love. But they are also a symbol for hope in many cultures, and so the proceeds from this collection of Motherhood Rings will benefit the opening of Gemfields Nkana Health Centre, where four new wards have been built – a major undertaking that will have long-lasting benefits to the local community.”
Crafted in 18 karat yellow gold and featuring a Gemfields Zambian emerald with the iconic Marina B cut. The Mila ring is priced from $4800. Limited production. Click HERE to reserve the ring.
A few months ago we came across these ‘never seen before’ BTS photos – taken during the making of Mila’s Gemfields campaign last year. Worth to share cause she looks fabulous!
Gemfields has released new promo for the’ Montepuez Ruby Mine in Mozambique. The beautiful clip features an extended footage from Mila’s trip to Zambia and Ian Harebottle’s short praise about her involvement.
We’re very excited, really excited. I think she’s gonna play an important role – she’s young, she’s energetic, she’s passionate. It was very important to Gemfields, when choosing the face about ethical gemstones, as we found somebody that shared our value system.
Earlier this week, Mila talked to Harper’s Bazaar about her Gemfields partnership, personal style, beauty routines and more
What drew you to working with Gemfields?
It was the ethical aspects honestly. Working with a precious gemstone company was interesting. I didn’t really want to do something that everyone else has done. I’ve always stayed away from signing to do work with companies I don’t believe in. I did that once, and I have to tell you it’s one of the hardest things to work with a company that you don’t stand by. So when this came along, it’s different, it’s unique, it’s special, it’s something that no one has ever done.
What was it like traveling to Zambia to see the brand’s emerald mine last year?
When you get an opportunity to travel to Africa at any point in your life it’s a blessing. Getting to be with such amazing people is truly something I cannot put into words. They were so welcoming, and so inviting. I didn’t get to just go to a hotel and get on a Greyhound bus tour to see all the beautiful places. I actually got to go to the village and go and see the community. They’re an open-minded and very transparent company and they take pride in that. The fact that they supply their employees with contracts in Africa is unheard of. It was incredibly fulfilling.
Do you have any fun stories from the trip?
I say this as a joke, but you do see elephants cross the road and you do see giraffes cross the road. You wake up in the morning and have a bowl of cereal and you turn around and your bowl of cereal was stolen by a monkey. Weird things like that happen every day. It’s normal.
Elle’s Joe Zee recently sat down with Mila Kunis in New York City to talk about her new campaign with Gemfields, the leading supplier of responsibly sourced colored gemstones, where the fashionable star also got to chat about her cool, laid-back style and her highly anticipated science fiction film Jupiter Ascending co-starring Channing Tatum.
“Chan’s great. He’s like the brother you want and have,” she says. “I love him, he’s great. We had an amazing six-seven month shoot. It was really hard, but we had each other, and we had so much fun doing it. He’s a great guy. He’s a great guy to a girl because he’s like a big brother, and he’s a great guy’s guy because he’ll just go to the pub and have a pint with you, and no frills about it. He’s like, a legit grounded human being, which is really rare.”
As for being the face of Gemfields, Kunis couldn’t be prouder.
“They take so much pride in being a transparent company, and that was incredibly evident when I came to see them,” she says about actually visiting their mines in Africa. “They actually care about the environment which is rare, and they care about the surroundings, the neighboring towns and they put so much effort into building up a strong community.”
As for her own much celebrated personal style, she revealed one of her favorite outfits — which centers around a simple white t-shirt.
“I do this thing called white t-shirt dates which is like jeans — your baggy boyfriend jean — a Ked, white t-shirt , a really cute sexy blazer — even if it’s like a little Chanel blazer or something — and call it a day.”
