This beautiful big ring has been one of our "classics" of the Rust & Co. Collection but this one is going to be the last one, at last for a while.
We have drastically reduced the use of stones in the last years as we think it is better to reduce mining, both for environmental and ethical reasons. But we still have some and we also really love them, so we have decided to use them wisely and keep a small reserve for special occasions. This is why this is going to be the last Black Diamonds Ring for some time.
Going back to the ring, it is a big silver ring with an irregular square shape and a thin line of small diamonds. Its contrasting features give it the mix of roughness and glamour we specially look for for our rings. The two samll cylinders between the upper part and the shank make it very comfortable despite its size.
As a small jewelry brand we make all our pieces personally in our workshop, mixing together traditional and innovative goldsmithing tecniques. We value the metal and the stone we work with, as they are precious resources with their strength and beauty already before any human intervention. But we also value what we can create by interacting with them.
Our pieces always bring traces of this view. They are rarely polished and their surfaces are irregular but comfortable. We think that a jewel should tell a story, have a clean design and show its link to the natural forces that shape our experience as living beings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The rings is made of recycled sterling 925 silver and the black diamonds are part of an old batch we bought years ago. We use recycled silver as much as we can, to reduce the environmental impact of our work and for ethical reasons.
Recycled silver has exactly the same characteristics and value of mined silver but it is obtained from old jewelry or silverware. From our personal point of view, it adds value to the jewelry we make.
