Rare-cut Hexagonal Gemstones

“There is one masterpiece, the hexagonal cell, that touches perfection.

No living creature, not even man, has achieved, in the centre of his sphere, what the bee has achieved in her own: and were someone from another world to descend and ask of the earth the most perfect creation of the logic of life, we should needs have to offer the humble comb of honey.”

- Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life Of The Bee, 1924

The most characteristic feature of the Honeycomb Collection is the unique shape of the gems that embellish our jewellery designs. Our signature hexagonal cut is very rare among classic gemstone cuts. For this reason all the stones have to be custom cut, giving each and every piece in the collection a distinctive look.

Honeycomb Jewellery Design Process

The concept for our very first collection was conceived in the summer 2014, shortly after Francesca, the founder of Magpie’s Loot, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl called Maya (Maya the Bee, you guessed it right;)

With the initial idea in mind she approached her partner Martin, an illustrator and printmaker, who then designed the core elements of the collection – the signature hexagonal cell, tiny bee charm and the beautiful bumblebee. Using these three key elements Francesca was able to create an astounding ensemble of seventy original pieces of jewellery, which today form the Honeycomb Collection.

Stack 'Em Up! Honeycomb Stacking Rings

The hexagon is considered one of the world's oldest and mystical symbols. Natural hexagonal shapes can be found everywhere you look, but the most obvious is the honeycomb, geometrically perfect home of the bee. Taking inspiration directly from our sweet friends, we chose the Honeycomb for Magpie’s Loot debut collection and our first design were the stacking rings.

Crafted from lustrous Sterling Silver, with some featuring precious 18-carat Yellow Gold Vermeil, our on-trend stacking rings come in three variants. These interlocking geometric bands, when stacked together, form a pattern of honeycomb. Wear one, two or three bands at a time and combine gold and silver for a striking colour contrast.
