Ring of Fire design, worth £20,000, to be exhibited at retailers.
Hannah Martin’s winning design for Mastercut’s Diamond Jubilee competition has finally been realised in 18ct gold and diamonds and is now set to tour the UK, stopping off at Mastercut’s leading stockists.
It will tour the country as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, and will continue throughout the summer. The ring will also be on show at CMJ’s buyers’ meeting in September.
The ring is set with Mastercut diamonds, which in total are valued at more than £20,000.
The Ring of Fire design is inspired by the monolithic nature of Russian communist architecture, Hannah also references the heavy machinery used in mining diamonds.
Martin said of winning the competition: "I wanted to create a piece that represented the strength and passion in the stone, and of course the emotions that are tied up in them.
“When you are wearing the ring it should feel like a symbol of power – a burning emblem on your finger.”
The Ring of Fire name is taken from an area in the Pacific Ocean where most of the world earthquakes and volcanoes take place, and also references the famous Johnny Cash song in which he “wrote about falling violently in love”.
The ring will also be showcased at IJL in September.
