    Striking in every way, this statement band ring from the designer’s Nebu: Sands of Gold Collection features bands of hand cut black jade and clear quartz in a matte 22K gold finish. Handcrafted in California. Band is 0.6 inches wide and 0.12 inches thick. Size 5.75.

    “The banding of this ring mimics the patterns seen throughout ancient Egyptian jewelry, most notably seen on the pharaoh’s staff, typically in turquoise and lapis.” — Loren Nicole

     


     

    Loren began her career in archaeology working on numerous digs in Central and South America researching ancient civilizations of northern Peru and then as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. It was there where what began as a curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion for ancient metalsmithing that ultimately eclipsed her academic interests and resulted in the launch of her inaugural collection in Summer 2016.

    Her love of the past and studied approach continues to be visible in her work, whether through researching museum collections of ancient chains to experimenting and perfecting her approach to chain making, or by employing the 3500 year old technique of granulation.

     

    We love the rich elegance of this black jade and quartz ring. One can almost feel the strength and energy of the Egyptian pharaoh’s staff that it is designed to emulate.
