London Rising - Finger Sculpture

London Rising - Finger Sculpture - Copyright Kerstin Laibach

The first and original jewellery piece paying homage to Renzo Piano's Shard.
Entirely handmade by Kerstin Laibach in recycled silver, gold and palladium this two finger ring sculpture depicts London's skyline changer that has risen from the heart the new London Bridge Quarter and currently the tallest building in the EU.
The ring merges London's history and future into one truly iconic jewellery work, with the interior containing a stone fragment from the Old London Bridge, which was dismantled at end of the 1960's.
The granite stone from old London Bridge is wrapped with strands of fine gold, while the skeletal Shard-like form is made in sterling silver with other elements forged in palladium or layered with 24 ct gold using the ancient Keum-Boo technique.
(The Shard itself is targeting a BREEAM (environmental assessment) rating of "excellent", with construction materials made from 95% recycled.)
A part of profits from the eventual sale of this ring will be donated to selected wildlife and renaturing projects in the UK and Africa.

Kerstin Laibach handmakes every aspect of her pieces including intricate chains and closing mechanisms. This aligns with her ethical principles, which, without compromise, also means nothing newly-mined, so no environment / habitat displacement, no animal-derived products and is cruelty-free.
What is the difference between recycled gold and new-mined gold?

NOTE: The screen colours of the precious and non-precious metals in Laibach pieces should be viewed as a general guide only. Computer screens vary and can affect the hue of images. For example, the gold colour often illustrated in Laibach collections is relative to 18 carat 750 hallmark. If you require other shades of gold please state your wishes when enquiring. For example, mixed colour shades of jewellery are also possible - natural white gold, yellow gold, champagne gold, rose (red) gold ... or platinum. For ethical (environmental) reasons Kerstin Laibach does not plate her jewellery.
