Chiara Ring | Gold Vermeil and Rhodium Plated Silver
Inspired by our glittering and mysterious galaxy, the Iper collection is a puzzle of modern and solar references. Imagine if you can pixelate everything else but only seeing the things you want to see; this is the initial concept of the collection. The idea was inspired by a sight-pixelation technology from an episode of the dystopian TV series - Black Mirror. The shape of the design took reference from the classic arcade game - Tetris. The designs are finished in pop and contrasting colour schemes that are inspired by modern Art Deco.
The Chiara Ring in this collection is a winning design of the Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Award in 2019, and it inspired Edward to develop a whole collection of the storyline. Edward assigned each cube to a star from our universe. Each enamel is hand-painted in precision by our artisans, and each gemstone is ethically sourced and carefully selected by Edward. Therefore, each cube encapsulates a unique and truly fascinating story.
The Chiara ring is a piece of statement jewellery that is whimsical yet elegant. It features an arrangement of cubes inspired by Modernism arts with an open-ended 'X' shape design on the back. This design won the Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Award in 2019 and it is also available in 14K & 18K gold.
All the pieces from the collection are made with Fairtrade or recycled precious metal, and each piece of gemstone is set by hand in our London workshop. In order to stop stock wastage and better protect our environment, all the stone settings and platings are done after the orders are placed. Our jewellery is designed to be gender non-binary and enjoyed by everyone.
