SILVERSTONE RINGS & MAGPIE STEALS RING by HARTOG & HENNEMAN
The Silver stone collection raises questions about value and authenticity by creating a conflict between the form of the ring and its material. The desire that a gem stone can create fascinates us. The role of gemstone in the traditional culture of jewellery is to determine rarity, and thus, exclusivity. This is changed by replacement of the gem with silver.
The ring is made in dusted (matt) silver. The stone will slowly get a little bit more shiny. By wearing you will polish your own jewel.
Each model can be made in any size
The MAGPIE is known for its preference for shiny objects, and there are stories around of magpies stealing silver and golden jewellery. Some people recognized themselves in the bird, and are often been called magpie.
