Ring, 2013

This is a Ring. It was designed by Hemmerle.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Gebrüder Hemmerle as part of Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial.

It is dated 2013. Its medium is bronze, white gold, diamond.

Hemmerle’s wonderful rings combine precious stones with unusual metals—here, diamond meets bronze and white gold. Hemmerle is a firm with a long tradition of jewelry-making. In 1895, Hemmerle was appointed purveyor to the Royal Bavarian Court. In 1995, Stefan Hemmerle took control of the firm with his wife, Sylveli. In 2006, they were joined by their son, Christian, and his wife, Yasmin. Nature is an endless source of inspiration. The design of the jewelry is a collaborative process for the family and their workshop. Each piece is shaped through iterative sketches—some taking up to five hundred hours to complete.

It is credited Courtesy of Hemmerle.
