Rongorongo Ring

Tania Pistone Rongorongo, 2019 18kt gold and bespoke black enamel ring also available: red, white, and blue enamel 1.5 cm unique within the series   Tania Pistone’s wearable art project for the Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery came to life following the artist’s Rongorongo series, paintings which depict an imaginary alphabet on gold-leaf plates. In her Rongorongo paintings, Pistone creates symbols in a deliberate attempt to reach an ideal alphabet, which addresses our shared, collective human subconscious which she believes has been shaped by the experiences of our ancestors: ‘The modern human is unable to recover the vision of the world held by our ancient ancestors, a vision which I believe still lives within us. We can only access it is through symbols which represent a story, a colour, a number, or a star… To make a sign vibrate as a symbol our interpretative intent must be to achieve that freedom one feels after making a void. This void gives the symbol some space to activate within us, just like sound vibrations in a sound box. A soundbox cannot produce any vibrations if it is full or if it is completely closed. The sign then becomes a bridge between two worlds, where the subtle becomes […]

Segmenti

Giorgio Vigna Segmenti, 2015 Oxidised silver and 18 kt yellow gold ring with and South sea pearl Unique and signed Giorgio Vigna’s artistic pathway is a journey out of the ordinary expressed by the strong link between his broad artistic research and nature, and the relationship that connects form and matter. In the jewellery, as much as in his artistic production, Vigna shows his versatility. The artist creates unique pieces expressing the diverse disciplines he works with: the virtues of glass, the jewellery as sculpture, and the soul of the precious.

Shell (Neptunea Angulata)

Rebecca Horn Shell (Neptunea Angulata), 2014 18kt pink gold ring Edition of 12 The jewelry project came to life through collaboration between the artist and Luisa del Valle, a noted goldsmith living in Spain.  After months of research, del Valle sourced rare stones, shells and ammonites to develop the concept of movement and energy central to Horn’s work. Each piece is unique, hand-made and exquisitely crafted by del Valle through the ancient Etruscan technique.  As a result of their collaboration, this jewelry is  a mélange of antiquity and contemporaneity, timeless sculptural pieces in the form of rings, earrings and necklaces which are deeply sensual.

Jannis Kounellis Labbra (Lips), 2012 18kt yellow gold lips ring 2.1 x 6 cm Edition of 12 Signed and numbered When Elisabetta Cipriani proposed the jewellery collaboration project to the noted artist Jannis Kounellis, he liked the idea of recreating his 1972 gold sculpture, which was stolen in the 1980. However, this time with an entirely different purpose, as wearable sculpture – a ring. The Labbra (Lips) ring, a cast of Kounellis’s lips, is reminiscent of the purpose of the ancient Greek masks.  

Rose

Ute Decker Rose, 2017 18kt Fairtrade Gold ring 4 x 3.5 cm Unique within a series Signed – UK Hallmark with artist initials UD, 2017   As natural roses curl and blossom, gently extending their petals out into the world, Rose captures that momentary movement of expansion and beauty in an eternal golden ring. It’s intricate, tightly curled extension into the spaces around the hand echoes that delicate beauty. From a finger-sized loop, Decker continues to curl the metal in a looser arc, then vertically arches the gold, as if encapsulating the finger. Part of Decker’s ongoing series, The Curling Crest of a Wave, the first edition of Rose now sits in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Rose is equally dynamic in its materiality as it is for its wearability. This ring has been doubled as a pendant hanging from a golden torque also made from Decker, which re-transforms this statement piece amongst collectors.
