Colosseum opening ring & magnifying glass

REF: 1-1-15-0749 S
Price On Application

A second collaboration between Theo Fennell and world-renowned micro-sculptor Willard Wigan MBE has resulted in this one of a kind Colosseum ring.

This incredible creation has been entirely handcrafted in the Theo Fennell London workshop by some of the most outstanding craftsmen in the world. The piece, modelled after the Roman Colosseum which was commissioned in AD72 by Emperor Vespasian, took a total of 160 hours to make.

Crafted from 18ct yellow gold , the rock crystal dome opens up to reveal a slain gladiator lying in the sand. Created by Willard on a minute scale, the attention to detail is quite extraordinary. Measuring about one milimetre high and crafted in 18ct yellow gold, the gladiator is wearing a loin-cloth and a helmet, with his shield and sword lying beside him. 

The ring is accompanied by an exquisite magnifying glass, which has been designed to be worn as a pendant to allow the wearer to see the minute details of the entire ring. Superbly crafted from 18ct yellow and white gold and studded with diamonds , the magnifying glass is suspended from a Roman sword poised between two skulls with Roman helmets. The 18ct yellow gold chain is set with diamonds.

Even the box that has been created to hold the ring and pendant is a true work of art with minute detailing and hidden drawers and modelled on the Pantheon – the great building in Rome, commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus and rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian about 126 AD.
