Monica Bonvicini Ring, 2014
18kt white gold with white diamonds and soft chain ring
edition of 50
Monica Bonvicini’s wearable art pieces are each one-of-a-kind. The artist’s relationship between power and gender are evidently reflected in each piece of this series, translated into inimitable and exceptional statement design. Exclusively made with ethically sourced gold, Bonvicini added her touch of humour to the pieces from the featured grenades alongside the sapphires in the long chain necklaces, to the satirical play on watch-fetishism in the bracelets. Luxury is redefined, by purposely moving away from shiny gold to sexy black, with blackened white and pink sets with striking white, brown and black diamonds, as well as sparkling emeralds and deep blue sapphire. Their minimalist yet hard and sturdy look was tailored to suit today’s strong and inventive woman, bringing a punch of beauty and sophistication.
