The new ring

The haute joaillerie collections presented in July paved the way for the return of a massive rectangular ring. Its highly architectural design features a large flat base sporting a citrine, emerald or octagonal sapphire. The terraced mount inlaid with multiple stones consists of inclined or cut planes. It may be structured by lines of diamonds, black enamel, etc., and the whole piece makes endless play with cuts and facets. A genderless neo-signet ring.
