This minimalist 18k yellow gold ring by Eva Fehren, resolving itself in a tiny thorn point at the centre, has a vaguely religious look to me. Catholic religious have long used visual and physical objects to remind them of Christ’s Passion and I can’t help but think of those when I see this.
Eva Fehren is a collaboration by two New Yorkers. In their words: The Eva Fehren Fine Jewellery Collection was created by New York designer Eva Zuckerman and her business partner and longtime friend, Ann Gorga. Formally trained in fine arts at the Cooper Union, Eva Zuckerman honed her jewelry design skills under the tutelage of Philip Crangi and went on to work with Anna Sheffield and Monique Pean. Eva draws from the industrial, architectural and geometric elements of her native New York: icons such as the Chrysler Building, the criss-crossing of power lines, and patterns in the cracked sidewalks of the West Village where she was raised.
I can see the Crangi influence but not sure I am channeling New York as much in this particular piece. The duo have their own website. This piece can be bought at Barneys for USD $1,230.
