Sirius ring with cognac-coloured tourmaline
In early 2022, I went to Inhorgenta in Munich for the first time. Inhorgenta is a large professional fair where they sell gemstones and pearls, among other things. During this buying trip, I came in contact with a company where they were selling the most beautiful tourmalines, and I couldn’t contain myself…
I purchased some very beautiful and high-quality tourmalines at the time, and in the fall of 2022, I purchased a new set of 5 beautiful tourmalines from the same company.
I have incorporated the five new tourmalines into a new series of rings, and it has also been appropriately named: the Sirius collection.
It is named after the brightest star in the sky that can be seen with the naked eye. Like the gemstones in these rings, it is all about clarity and the stunning effect of such a single gemstone.
This series of rings is also about the use of the colour of the gemstones with the way the ring is worked. I love adding texture/texture to the ring’s band, as it has an awful lot of effect on how a ring will look in the end.
Pictured is the ring with an oval-cut cognac-coloured tourmaline set in a 14kt yellow gold ring.
The ring has been hammered with horizontal strokes and then polished. All parts are handmade in the workshop in Beltrum, and all the details together, make it a striking one-of-a-kind design and piece of jewellery.
