This beautiful conceptual sculptural sterling silver ring is part of my 'Six Memos for the Next Millennium' series. The rings are based on the book by Italio Calvino of the same name. This is ring number 1, based on Calvino's first chapter on the subject of 'Lightness'.

I took the idea of representing the lightness of space. It is about the most weightless thing I can think of! The ring is made from sheets of sterling silver which have been cut by hand and meticulously soldered together. The hollowed half dome that rests on the top is patinated on the inside to give the silver a blackness and depth. It has been drilled with many tiny holes to create a little universe.

I can make this ring to order - please let me know your ring size in the drop down menu. If you have your ring size in a European, UK or other size I can use this to work out your ring size - just send me a message with the size that you have and I will do the rest.

I will advise you on how long it will take for me to make your ring (normally 1 week plus shipping time).

The band in the picture is a US ring size 6 and a half
This equates to a UK ring size N
In France this is a ring size 54.
The internal circumference of the ring is 52.8 mm

The ring is 1.5 inches (40mm) in overall height. It has a maximum width of 1inch (25mm) which is the diameter of the half dome. The width of the ring band tapers from 0.2inches (6mm) to 0.28 inches (7mm).

It is hallmarked with my unique mark along with the traditional sterling silver marks. I get this carried out by the Assay Office in London. It is your guarantee of quality and authorship.

It comes gift wrapped in a black box - ready to give as a present to yourself or someone else.
