Celeste II Treasury Double Halo Ring
Celeste, like its stellar epithet, is both timeless in its nature and design; its textured surfaces and incandescent qualities reflect myriad colours and emotions. The rich and varied blues and greens with gold have a kaleidoscopic, luminescent beauty.
This ring has been meticulously crafted using the technique of lost wax casting, in which gemstones are set into sculpted wax, then carefully displaced with molten fair-trade 9 carat yellow gold. The 1.55ct central teal sapphire is surrounded by a halo of diamonds and a larger halo of blue and green Australian sapphires.
The ocean is a vital and powerful source of expressive and artistic inspiration behind Celeste, which sublimely interlaces Tudor and Elizabethan aesthetics with classic romantic literature. Themes of longing, love and destiny, found amongst the pelagic drama of Austen’s Persuasion or Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, are crucial to designer Ciara Bowles innovative style; the passions of lovers or bonds of sibling-hood, separated by the fatalistic, cruel indifference of raging oceanic tempests, imbue this stunning piece with a wealth of artistic interpretation to be determined by the limitless and individual imagination of the wearer.
Size L 1/2, please get in touch regarding sizing.
Ciara Bowles' journey towards being a jewellery designer started from a very early age. Making things and understanding how things are made was always a fascination. By the age of 13 she had gathered together a collection of tools and had started making jewellery out of wire and drinks cans. After completing her training as a jeweller in 2012, she went on to work in the jewellery industry for world renowned jewellery brands and fashion houses - finding her feet in the London Jewellery district of Hatton Garden.
Ciara says; 'Being brought up in London's East End, my tastes in colours and aesthetics have formed through being surrounded by a multitude of cultures, historical legends and the urban city. Inspired by the patterns and forms that I see in my native environment, I strive to create intricate fine jewellery that are luxuriously exciting and imbued with a sense of playfulness. Using colourful stones and the ancient technique of lost wax casting, the jewellery combines the old and the new – and will hopefully stand the test of time.'
