Karl Fritsch Gold Ring with Orange Sapphires $4,200>
Ornamentum

A very-wearable Fritsch ring example... 18k gold beset with orange sapphires, Fritsch's history as a classical trained goldsmith is on display, while the little quirks in the design clearly show it to be a Fritsch original. Known for his irreverent approach, Karl Fritsch pulls his designs 'from his gut'... doing whatever he pleases at that moment. From Cameo stone images of a man throwing up to a gemstone set in place with a screw or a nail, he simultaneously embraces and discards all of the traditions of jewelry making. It is this playful wit that finds him to be one of the most highly collected working jewelers, and his oeuvre (almost entirely) of rings are found in the collections and on the hands of fine art connoisseurs and jewelry collectors alike.
