Sibilo Ring by Fabio Brazil & Henrique Murgel

Home > Winners > #30236


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sibilo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Ring

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration came from the gemstone itself: A brazilian tourmaline with a deep and rare blue/green tone. The idea was to create a ring with a clean design that could emphasize the beauty and the color of the tourmaline.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The main attribute of the Sibilo Ring is its simplicity. The neutral tone of the white gold serves as a clean surface to reflect the color of the gem, and its tension setting makes no other element able to draw attention from the tourmaline, one of the finest gemstones found in Brazil and the main element of this piece of jewelry.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
N/A

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was developed in São Paulo, Brasil, and it took around 3 weeks from the first roughs to the final piece.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
18K white gold; green tourmaline stone. Produced manually using metal forging process.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
24g / Dimensions: Width 15mm x Depth 22mm x Height 22mm

TAGS:
Ring, White, Gold, Tourmaline, Gemstone, Brazilian, Jewelry, Design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
N/A

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge of this ring was the type of setting applied, because in most cases the tension setting is made, the metal parts that hold the stone are parallel to each other, exerting the same pressure on both sides of the stone. In this case, the two sides that hold the tourmaline form an angle, creating a pressure much greater at one end of the stone, which can break it or push it out of the ring. These factors had to be taken into consideration so that the tourmaline would fit perfectly.
