What happens when Canada's favourite gem dealer collaborates with Canada's pre-eminent abstract artist?
Together through a combination of art, science, and the magic of the earth, artist Matthew Crookshank and Skyjems’ David Saad have created Blue Oracle, a one-of-a-kind piece of art that is as mesmerizing as it is enduring.
No human could ever have created such a perfect piece of art without the help of nature, and that is why Matthew’s artistic skill is the ideal amalgamation with this perfect 90ct museum-quality aquamarine from the Skyjems collection. This breathtaking gemstone took hundreds of millions of years to form, and had most recently been sitting in David's safe waiting to realize its destiny.
Matthew’s creation is timeless yet modern, bold yet delicate, with his signature nest of 18k yellow gold and diamonds dancing around David’s flawless, richly-saturated aquamarine. The pairing is exquisite, and needs to be seen to be believed.
It is David and Matthew's vision that in 300 years, children will press their faces up against a glass case at the Royal Ontario Museum to view Blue Oracle for themselves. Until then, they feel blessed to simply be the caretakers of this precious piece of art, waiting to pass it on to its next lucky owner.

This may add up to 3-4 weeks for export depending on the destination country.
