Piece of the Week: Cast Jewelry’s Transformable Ring
Italian jeweler Francesca Villa is the mind behind the design.
Cast Jewelry is the brainchild of Rachel Skelly, an entrepreneur who specializes in revitalizing traditional retail categories with innovative launches like Olly (vitamins) and Plum Organics (baby food).
Skelly’s unique approach to jewelry is in her designer collective approach—she enlists her favorite independent jewelry designers to create special limited-edition collections for the brand.
Italian designer Francesca Villa is one such voice. She’s known for incorporating unique materials into her fine jewels, often reworking vintage elements, like a crystal that is then reverse-carved and painted, or even crafting a casino chip into a pendant.
This “Piece of the Week” ring utilizes traditional fine jewelry materials but is innovative in another manner.
The “Iced Getaway Ring” is a four-in-one flip ring, with two central components that rotate courtesy of a Swiss-designed mechanism to present four separate material combinations.
Crafted in 18-karat yellow gold, the ring features pavé white diamonds weighing 1.55 total carats, pavé black diamonds weighing a total 0.54 carats, and black onyx.
The hefty sparkler is available on CastJewelry.com for $10,000.
