It is always a pleasure to see extraordinary talent continue from one generation to another, younger one.
Bryan is the son of Al Joe, and bringing his own vision to his father’s acclaimed flawless silver work and exquisitely minimalist design.
This fabulous ring is dramatic, but in a quietly assured way.
The long, oval form, with a slightly convex top, has a reticulated, all-over texture that is slightly antiqued.
Overlaid over this, two pairs of glistening, polished silver, curved lines face in opposite directions.
These are separated by a similar straight line, that bisects the ring in a very slight diagonal, about one-third of the way from one end.
The design refers to flowing water, a traditional symbol of good luck, but appears chicly abstract and contemporary.
The sturdy shank comprises five bars, to best support the ring, with two of them chiseled into a rope-like texture.
This repeats the polished and textured design of the ring’s face, and is an artful design touch.
Definitely a statement, the ring is, nevertheless, graceful and elegant in design and impeccable in execution.
Assured and bold, this ring is a stunner; you will love wearing it, and the compliments it will attract.
We welcome this gifted young jeweler, and the promise of more remarkable pieces, like this wonderful ring.
