An elegant Art Deco ring, decorated with a string of Diamonds around its entire edge that has been set on Black Rhodium plated Sterling Silver. Along its center, the ring has been embellished with beautiful iridescent hand-cut Abalone Shells.
The collection drew inspiration from the elegance of the 1930s Art Deco movement, an influential visual arts design style that first appeared in France. The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation. Merged with the iridescent colours of Scarab wings, the ring sits beautifully on the fingers making it an easy wear during the day or even formal evening ‘dressed up’ gatherings.
Lotus Arts de Vivre sources its Mexican Abalone Shells from Indonesia and cutting them into these fine pieces for a design is an intricate skill. These Abalone Shells are oval shaped with natural imperfections and the iridescent colours of the shells enhance feelings of peace, beauty, compassion, and love. The main commercial sources of these shells started in the early 1900’s, worn by the Kings and Queens of various eras. Popular for their sturdiness and beauty, it was also used to decorate watches, knives, guns, and jewellery.
The piece took 7 craftsmen and designers 1.5 months to complete.
