According to statistics, rings are the item of jewellery most worn by women, regardless of their budget. These little mini-sculptures also offer designers the opportunity to express their artistic talent. Here’s a look back at the new rings in the precious jewellery (silver, gold) section at the January edition of BIJORHCA PARIS.

True vintage

The jewellery may be modern, but vintage-inspiration is the order of the day, as we saw in the hammered-effect rings by Astorga Jewels. This Portuguese brand combines silver and gold in pretty rings adorned with zirconium oxides, which could easily have come from a bygone era. Representing the brand Théma Créations, designer Catherine Lestrat brought silver swivel rings, some covered in gold leaf. These authentic, customisable creations, made using traditional techniques, come in numerous combinations of hammered granular metal. Portuguese designer Tania Gil, who operates from Lisbon, goes even further by taking her inspiration from submerged relics. Her Underwater Habitat ring uses oxidised copper on silver to imitate a seaweed finish, evoking the depths of the ocean. The leather-crafted and amber cabochon ring by the brand Opalook, well-known for its incredible collection of amber jewellery, evokes 18th century splendour and the famous antechamber of Catherine the Great in Russia. Barcelona-based El Expreso de Oriente takes us back to the volutes of the Art Nouveau years with a beautiful coral on silver ring. Barcelona is also famous for Antoni Gaudí, the illustrious artist responsible for the most beautiful architecture of the period such as Park Güell and the Sagrada Familia. This collection is a wonderful tribute to Catalan Modernism, Barcelona’s own Art Nouveau!
