W&W Jewellery create ready to wear Celestial Ring to mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landing

10 May 2019

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, Battersea based NAJ member, W&W Jewellery, has taken inspiration from antique jewellery and atomic post-war design to create a strikingly beautiful piece that is out-of-this-world – The Celestial Ring.

W&W is known for their expertise in creating bespoke pieces, transforming treasured heirlooms into contemporary pieces, and using a combination of precious metals and unusual gemstones; the Celestial Ring is no different, bringing old cut diamonds into the future. 

Interweaving historical and cosmic influences, the innovative ring combines a vintage jewellery aesthetic, upcycled old cut diamonds and a contemporary geometric design concept. Digitally designed and made in platinum the ring incorporates a unique double orbit shank below the star burst set with old cut diamonds, black diamonds and pale blue sapphires. The sculptural black star draws the focus into the heart of the ring and is black rhodium plated with a steely industrial finish that adds contrast and depth to the cosmic colour palette.

The 3D star burst concept is inspired by traditional Victorian diamond brooches and the distinctive design characteristics of Sputnik. The finished piece is an outstanding example of W&W’s ability to blend extensive jewellery knowledge, cutting edge jewellery design, new and vintage materials with stellar results!

The Celestial Ring by W&W Jewellery is now on display at their Battersea based studio and is available to purchase from W&W Jewellery for £6,300.
