The empty quarter ring opens up to reveal a desert, and apparently deserted scene, but in reality with three miniature camels which have been beautifully crafted by Willard on a minute scale.
The ring is accompanied by a fabulously crafted magnifying glass and chain so it can be worn around the neck, allowing the wearer to see clearly the three camels as they make their way elegantly across the desert. As with all of Theo’s designs, the attention to detail on this ring is staggering: the ring and magnifying glass have both been crafted completely by hand by our brilliant craftsmen in our Chelsea workshop from different coloured 18ct golds and set with diamond, while the body of the ring has been intricately deep-engraved with desert flowers and adorned with rose gold salamanders clambering across it.
This creation - from the box to the ring itself - is a true work of art. It brings together the skills of a dozen brilliant craftsmen amongst whom are our multi-award winning mounter, enameller, setter, stone carver and polisher and of course Theo and Willard themselves.
