CATHÉDRALE DE STRASBOURG RING
Conjuring the rose coloured stone walls of the Cathédrale de Strasbourg in France, this pink tourmaline ring is a one of a kind masterful homage to gothic architecture. Sandstone sourced from the nearby Vosges Mountains is what gives the cathedral it’s uniquely famous hue.
Exquisitely handcrafted in 9kt yellow gold this divine ring features a heavenly 3.2 carat round cut pink tourmaline in the most gorgeous shade of peachy pink. Set inverted and resplendent against the gold, it sits atop a signature William Llewellyn Griffiths cathedral setting and split shank. The setting like a vaulted ceiling, serves to draw in the maximum amount of light, allowing it to pass through the stone and portray it's true vibrancy. The centre stone measuring 8.8mm in diameter and 7.4mm high, is held by 4 fleur dis lis shaped claws, each studded with it’s own sparkling white 0.9mm diameter round brilliant cut diamond. The cathedral is flanked by two guardian skulls perched across the shoulders of the ring.
This incredible memento mori ring is definitely a statement piece. Weighing 5.66 grams it sits comfortably on the hand and has a gorgeous weight to it.
The ring fits Australian & British size K 1/2 (US size 5 1/8). Ring size can be adjusted within reason.
All pieces are made with love in William Llewellyn Griffiths' Melbourne studio.
