Asymmetrics + Diamonds
A Double Ring
Architecture and how the combined use of simple and complex elements create sophisticated boldness.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The piece is a free-standing sculptural double ring with large asymmetrical gemstones and diamonds. It never closes in a perfect circle, as it's read as one continuous element that hugs the fingers and provides structure for the gemstones at the same time, giving it an organic feel. The metal's delicate intervention of grabbing the gemstones allows them to appear as floating when worn, yet the metal becomes the extroverted main character of the piece when it's not in use.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The double ring is designed to be worn either on the middle and ring finger or the ring finger and the pinky finger. The gemstones are positioned to follow the natural ascending and descending position of the hand knuckles to promote harmony between the hand and the piece. This design detail works when worn on either hand.
