The design that John Reinhold hashed out with designer Marc Jacobs over dinner one night is an interesting concept.
Following the trend of anti-bling, The Diamond Rattle Ring is unique in that the diamonds are contained in the hollow gold band within eight interior compartments, with each segment capable of holding a .25 carat diamond.
When the inner part of the ring is rotated, a window appears over one of the compartments, which enables the wearer to remove one of the stones, giving them the ability to feel the stones and hear their “delicate music.”
The 18 karat Rattle Rings can be ordered with as few as two diamonds, which equal One-half carat ($4750), to as many as 8 Diamonds equaling two carats, ($10,750) and sizes in between.
In addition to diamonds, the ring also can be ordered with eight gemstones: Amethyst, Aquamarine, Sky Blue Topaz, Swiss Blue Topaz, London Blue Topaz, Citrine, Garnet, Peridot, Rhodalite, Green Tourmaline and Pink Tourmaline, but not emeralds as they are too soft.
To complete the set, a matching Rattle Bracelet can be purchased for $11,500.
“People thought I was nuts, hiding a diamond. But for some people, it’s about discretion. A lot of men love them because this way they can have the diamonds, without the Las Vegas effect. For me, just knowing the diamonds are there is enough.”
