A luscious visual feast of a ring, this one is inspired by the sumptuousness of The Banquet of Cleopatra.
The legend which is depicted in many paintings tells the story of the rivalry between Cleopatra and Mark Antony as to who could host the most expensive feast. Cleopatra won the wager by taking off her priceless and rare pearl earring, dissolving it in a cup of vinegar and drinking it.
We've tried to capture a feeling of luxury and excess in this ring, with generous flashy stones in unusual cuts, held up on the heads of an amphisbaena (two headed snake). This motif is a nod to her future death where she is bitten by an asp (Egpytian cobra).
Each piece is created with stones and jeweller's wax, which we carve and then cast. This is called the lost wax technique (where the wax is melted out and replaced by molten metal). We then hand polish and finish each piece, before sending them to be gold plated in London's Hatton Garden district.
Each of these rings is completely unique and one of a kind. They can never be reproduced exactly the same.
