Zig-Zag Repousse BandRonnie Henry
Ronnie has emerged as an increasingly creative artist, working on designs and techniques that are new to him.
Although he has made repousse band rings in the past, this style is really handsome and really different.
“Repousse” means pushed out from behind, in jewelers’ French.
A band of silver has had horizontal ovals pushed out from the inside, and the indented outlines are blackened, for graphic contrast.
The edges of the ring have been carefully cut into peaks, whose contours exactly match the form and size of each diamond shape.
The result is a ring that is simple, but striking; far from ordinary, yet understated, but noticeable.
There are small twin diamond shapes that are vertical, rather than horizontal like the rest of the ring.
These will allow the ring to be reduced – or increased – in size, by removing one or both of the vertical shapes or adding silver between them.
If it almost fits, especially if you are a woman, it looks chic and fetching placed on one of the larger fingers of your hand – like the index finger.
This ring is a splendid result of confident artistic exploration.
