Gold and Diamond Buckle Ring


This splashy European Retro gold ring with diamonds re-imagines the buckle ring as a chic abstraction. The polished scrolling shank centers on a stylized depiction of a buckle strap and hardware, creating fascinating design tension. Set into white gold, the round-cut diamonds accentuate the beautifully balanced asymmetry of the form.
