Spectacular like a statue, sinuous like a dress, the Ruby Drapery ring is inspired by Baroque sculptures, also known as “living marbles”. Highly expressive due to their dynamic poses, fluid movements and swirling draperies, these masterworks perfectly epitomized the creative vision of an era. Drawing from this aesthetic approach, Bvlgari successfully takes on the challenge of crafting precious metals and gemstones - hard and rigid by nature – into a piece of extreme vitality and motion.
A jewel conceived like a dress: diamonds and rubies flow with an exquisite sense of movement, evoking the sensuous dynamism and sculptural quality of a precious fabric.
Pigeon blood red is one of the rarest shades in the world of gemstones. With its wondrous color, the standout top of the range cushion-cut ruby (5.04 ct) enhances the ring’s compelling depth and dynamism.
A long story of artistry kept in one small piece of ultimate preciousness: rings are the highest expression of the craftsmen’s unique abilities. The balance of the composition, the stone-setting and the fundamental lightness of the piece requires a wide range of skills as every step is mastered by the artisan within an extremely reduced volume.
Flawlessly three-dimensional, the Ruby Drapery ring flaunts an extraordinary construction that can be appreciated from any point of view. Likewise, Baroque sculptures were usually placed in the middle of a room or a square, to be admired from any perspective. Indeed, Baroque never compromised and accepted nothing less than perfection: an approach that guides the Roman High Jeweler in its quest for excellence.
