This ring is a one of a kind, made especially for the Goldsmiths Fair 2020.
Octopuses are amazing creatures and I am fascinated by their intelligence and ability to squeeze through tiny gaps by rapidly changing their body shape.
The ring is hand-fabricated in Silver, hand-engraved and set with a blue-green oval Cat’s Eye Tourmaline. Cat’s Eye Tourmaline is rare variety of tourmaline which gives off a unique reflection of light that resembles the slit eye of a cat. The technical term used by gemologists to refer to a cat’s eye effect is ‘chatoyancy’, derived from the French phrase ‘oeil de chat’, which means ‘eye of the cat’.
