18ct white gold, blue Montana asscher cut sapphire
To mark e.g.etal’s 25th anniversary, a collection of e.g.etal artists have each created a piece of jewellery that exists at the intersection of defiance and desire. These are beautiful, covetable objects that also challenge the wearer and push at the boundaries of what jewellery can be.
In the early years of his practice, David Parker was inspired and driven to create pieces that departed from the traditional. His designs had to not only present themselves as modern pieces that moved a reluctant jewellery aesthetic forward but the techniques used to set the stones had to mirror that ideal. He wanted to re-imagine the way we viewed gemstones and in particular the way we set the stones. He wanted to incorporate a (new) sense of beauty, balanced proportion and perhaps powerful elegance. To that end he developed the ‘Curve Set’ design and setting technique. Over the years the design and the techniques have evolved but the idea behind this design remains the same. For more than 15 years it’s been a design exclusive to e.g.etal but featuring a half carat white asscher cut diamond. For the desire / defiance exhibition, he has updated the ring design with an American stone, to honour his current home in the United States.
Pieces from this collection will be shipped at the conclusion of the exhibition (from 23rd November, 2023)
