jose hess diamond and 18k gold sculptural ring


The Story

A chic vintage ring that will stop you in your tracks. Made from rich 18 karat yellow gold, a sculptural design frames a bright and beautiful round brilliant cut diamond. The 0.25 carat stone is artfully set between two bar prongs putting the diamond in full view. The bar prongs, which work their way through the tall shank of the ring, each finish with a 0.01 carat diamond adding a subtle sparkle to the side view. 

Made by the German born Jose Hess, it's masterfully done. Known for his sculptural designs, this incredible piece feels like a true work of art. Sitting off the finger with great presence, it's well made and feels amazing on the finger.

Wear it on its own as a statement ring or pair it with your favorite pieces. It would make an incredible unconventional engagement ring for someone looking for a unique piece.
