Light-drilled Diamond 1992
Rough, polycrystalline diamond, fine gold wire around a core of cobalt. The diamond is in its natural state except for a hole drilled for the passage of the cobalt wire. The stone is flexibly hung on this axis in the manner of ancient cylinder seals or Egyptian scarab rings. A double layer of gold wire has been wound around the cobalt. The clash between archaic workmanship and state-of-the-art technology underlies the concept of this ring.
