The stacking insect-rings from Stephen Webster’s Jitterbugs collection ♦ ︎
That Stephen Webster is a sui generis jeweler is well known. But this does not stop you from surprising. The Jitterbugs collection, for example, is a combination of engineering, design and imagination, all seasoned with colored stones, gold, diamonds, and a dip in nature. But it is a nature subject to metamorphosis: the collection, in fact, is inspired by the forms of insects to turn them into mysterious creatures.
Not only that: the insect rings are actually a set of two pieces that can be worn separately.
A difficult work of planning and realization, as can be seen from the film accompanying the collection, thus allows the “pay one, get two”. The jewel in the form of an insect can attract attention in worldly situations, like a cocktail ring, while the single gold band with a single stone has a more discrete impact. A solution worthy of the fame of the designer, who in 2007 was awarded the title of Honorary Doctorate by the University for the creative arts and in 2013 was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire for training services and skills in the field of British jewelery. Collection prices: single stone rings from 1000 to 1500 pounds, insect rings from 3400 to 7300 pounds. Giulia Netrese
