Masses of sparkly crystals are secluded inside and are unveiled when reduce in half. The ring performs with the juxtaposition involving the matte and the glint, the rough and the elaborate, the hollow and the entire.” Mild geometric varieties meet salt-and-pepper diamonds, tourmaline, tsavorites and peridot, in her characteristically minimalist opulence.

The Coral & Barnacle Cluster Art Ring By Ami Pepper

Full of hand-labored texture and granulation, this ring attracts on the designer’s childhood recollections of beachcombing in Wales, and the shells and creatures she identified there. “By studying the traces of the tides and colours of the landscape, the ring encapsulates an essence of the raw, organic treasure, encrusted with barnacles like a shell would be around time below the sea,” says Pepper of the jewel, which sees eco-friendly sapphires of different hues bursting out from very small pipes and bubbles of 9kt gold.
