0.88

The brand name comes from the diameter of the gold wire Philippe Airaud uses to make his jewelry. “0.88 is the minimum diameter with maximum resistance,” he explains. The designer started with a simple ring for the person he loves before going on to reveal its infinite possibilities. He twists it, sculpts it, rounds it into a drop shape, or transforms it into a pin inspired by the kilt pin. Minimal, unisex, poetic. Less is more.
