Alinka

A master of asymmetric and modern design, Alinka designer Alina Barlow has a rare talent for creating delicate and sculptural masterpieces from the finest diamonds and gold on the market. Secret messages and two-fold meanings lay hidden in the rings, each with a concealed Alinka evil eye diamond inside the band.

Standout pieces from the collection include the Katia and baguette rings. Unexpected and refined, the Katia’s diamond crossover design is innovative and eye-catching. Alinka’s baguette rings are clean and feminine—the Duo is a favorite with a gorgeous Green Zambian Emerald mounted on a sculptural, open band that slinks around the finger showcasing smaller diamonds on one side and larger, square diamonds on the other.

Ina Beissner

Ina Beissner engagement rings encapsulate the essence of understated glamor. A dialogue of art and life between her two cultures, designer Ina Beissner plays with the elements of minimal European style and the mysticism of Latin America. Her timeless heirlooms meld inspirations from ancient tribes with clean designs and simplistic styles.

Although minimal, these modern engagement rings are laden with beautiful and considered details like an open band or petite diamonds encircling the ring. The Lua ring is a design masterpiece, proving that minimalistic rings can be rich with detail. The ring’s oval cut diamond is mounted on a 18k yellow gold band with smaller diamonds on the sides. The design exudes a subtle allure, akin to gazing at the ring through a soft-focus lens, where every detail seamlessly melds into the next.

Every bespoke piece is designed in her Berlin atelier and handcrafted by artisans in Antwerp.

Jessie Thomas

Having learned the trade from her father, goldsmith and designer Jessie Thomas’ bespoke rings herald the art of crafting timeless pieces that revel in simplistic beauty. Working with her father, a celebrated Master Goldsmith, David Thomas, the duo now designs and handcrafts every piece in their Chelsea studio from the highest quality conflict-free diamonds, antique old cut diamonds and responsibly sourced stones.

Artful, bold, and unexpected, the brand plays with band density and ratio with larger band widths taking center stage. Floating diamonds are set asymmetrically and off-center, while curved silhouettes reminiscent of undulating lines seem to dance when worn.
