Award winning jewellery designer, Simone Ng, has collaborated with architect and ‘City Time Traveller’ TV host, Jason Pomeroy, to create the first of its kind, ‘Jewels of Architecture’ capsule collection. Together they have explored their love for history, art and design in a collaboration they describe as “mutually inspiring and fulfilling”.
‘Jewels of Architecture’ consists of 6 bejewelled rings that track the evolution of British architecture from the 11th to the 20th century. Each ring is a modern reinterpretation of an iconic building from various art eras spanning from Gothic through Modern Contemporary. These include Kings College Chapel, St Paul’s Cathedral and Swiss Re Tower, to name a few.
It took a year of diligent effort to translate the ideas to skilfully crafted rings. Every ring is constructed like an architecture, layered with high quality sugarloaf gemstones and an array of fine materials, using different techniques and highly skilled craftsmen. To top it off, a secret compartment is built within the ring which mimics the interior of buildings adding mystery and artistic flair to the rings.
