A diamond ring might be the epitome of jewelry perfection, yet Satomi Kawakita's rings do not embody the usual expression of rigid forging. The clean lines and flawless curves to which almost all expensive accessories aspire are certainly not present in the designer's collection of R series finger bands.
Made from yellow gold or platinum, these luxuries pieces have been sculpted very organically into roughly circular shapes, revealing kinks, bends, bulges and other deformities from their manufacturing processes. Thickness of the material varies greatly throughout the circumference of each ring and the precious stones have been embedded in crooked settings and even with remarkably irregular spacing.
As an exploration of the properties of metal, Satomi Kawakita's rings look to have been melted and warped or hastily hammered out. However, the aesthetic is deliberate and presents an intriguing collection of unique opulent items of beauty.
