Dante’s Zircon

I have always been consumed with a love for fashion & its technicalities. The use of colour by designers such as McQueen who conceived pieces beyond the norm & imbued feminine beauty with power.  I wanted to make a piece in which the colours jarred, the yellow diamonds jump against the blues & the depth of the burnt orange pop against the pale green. This juxtaposition excites the whole piece.

Details: 2018. 14.56ct rare orange beryl, cut by the late Erwin Springbrunn, with 344 coloured diamonds & sapphires set into an 18kt rose gold ring with honeycombed undercarriage
