Ai Weiwei Ring W and Ring M 2018 24kt yellow gold rings 2.48 x 2.88 x 1.65 cm; 2.72 x 3.04 x 1.86 cm Edition of 6 (per model) After three years of intense artistic and social commitment, Ai Weiwei returns to create exclusive jewels in pure 24kt gold, which can be worn by both men and women. Ai Weiwei’s new and exclusive wearable art project reveals the artist’s continued interest in exploring themes of human migration and dignity. The statement pieces investigate what it means to be trapped, bound, and deprived of the freedom to travel and determine one’s own existence. By combining the artist’s signature iconography with iconic symbols of contemporary society, Ring W and Ring M depict stories of migrants, which unfold underneath a mysterious half-moon: by foot or by sea, some are portrayed travelling together and others alone. The artist’s use of 24kt gold as well as his reference to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics further reinforce the power of the wearable artworks as representative of the artist’s acute social awareness and exquisite artistic craftsmanship. At its core, the wearable art project is a manifestation of Ai Weiwei’s sensitivity to the duality of human nature; our capacity for both empathy and destruction.

Zaha Hadid Silene Ring II, 2015 18 kt white gold white ring 6 cm high Unlimited Edition   Zaha Hadid created the Silene high jewellery pieces in collaboration with The House of Aziz and Walid Mouzannar. The Mouzannar family has been creating jewellery since the 18th century, and with the Silene pieces, they continue their tradition of crafting remarkable jewellery. Silene expresses the fluidity and complexity of natural forms. An intricate web gently envelops the pristine white gold cuff resulting in a delicate piece that explores the evolution of organic geometries and patterns. Inlaid with diamonds that float between the fluid forms to accentuate its composition, Silene orchestrates an ever-changing play of refraction and reflection that conveys its formal complexity.
