r¿ng is a 10 carat white gold Möbius band with a hand tapped 16 gauge internal [female] thread to receive three uncut rough diamonds set individually into screw-in external thread-form propeller claws. Housed in a 215-piece hand-painted box with threaded lid for safekeeping the 6.86 carat total weight over three different diamonds*. [Black 3.53ct / White 1.88ct / Yellow 1.44ct]

My love it came, my love it went…
So I plied and so I played
with brevity and breadth, I gauged with breath
and depth
and mined and moulded, and with my arms I then held it.
Three stones.

A big black rock. An average to large white rock. And a smaller yellow rock… The economy of desire was measurable but not immutable
And with all that was left, bent gold around each cleft,
was shaped band and claws from a propeller lent.
Till threaded and golden gleamed this ring thrice revolving.
[Threaded, that is, to keep her mindful of the stone and of me.]
boxed and placed and presented and requested…

So now, she chooses which stone to wear – one for work and one for stares. One for evenings and one for mournings. One for what ever she cares.
And now I too play this game of choice… to add another to the compliment of raw precious diamonds; rough to remind my nights before her, and rare as the days now empty.
Or, to take one away.

– is made on request to individual size with the option to select stone shapes with a four to six week lead time to shipping
– is produced in cooperation with the steady hand and mindful mind of This Charming Man’s Edward Janssen
– has been shot in the macro world by Marnio Thorlacius
– is housed in a box made with Snorri Már Snorrason
