We have talked about jewellery inspired by art, jewellery inspired by nature as a whole, so today, we are going to talk about jewellery inspired by the animal kingdom.
Animals have been inspiring artists and goldsmiths in a variety of ways since centuries. Animal jewellery has been used as amulets, to represent a favourite pet or as a symbol, for strength for example.
We have selected a few pieces of jewellery, including original diamond rings that represent beautifully the animal kingdom.
Monarca Butterfly diamond ring
This elegant and subtle butterfly diamond ring is part of the Monarca collection of BAUNAT.
It is the Monarch butterfly and its dynamic and colourful beauty that has inspired this collection. The diamond ring is made with 18 carat white gold and set with 0.75 carats of small high quality diamonds.
The Dragonfly & Flower diamond ring
From BAUNAT’s Pas-de-Deux collection, this diamond ring stands out because of its uniqueness and lovely combination of a dragonfly with a flower that seem to float on the ring. It is set with a total of 0.55 carats of small high quality diamonds.
Fluttery Whimsical blue brooch
Wallace Chan has been an inventor when talking about jewellery techniques and gemstone carving. We chose here a stunning butterfly brooch that really highlights the unique way the jeweller manages to carve gemstones into the shapes he has in mind, the incredible technique used to work the metal and set the stones.
The Flamant Corail necklace
This astonishing transformable necklace was created by Van Cleef & Arpels. It represents a pink flamingo essentially made of coral, pink sapphires and diamonds. The pink flamingo looks like it is spreading its wings around the neck in a beautiful necklace. And in line with the Maison’s tradition, the body of the bird itself, can detach into a clip allowing this piece of jewellery to be used in different ways.
This is a small selection of the many wonders that can be found in the world today that represent the animal kingdom creatively.
At BAUNAT we have a lovely design collection with butterflies and dragonflies as you have seen above. Furthermore, BAUNAT has a great team of designers that can support you in the whole process of designing your very own animal diamond ring.
