Wendy Brandes 2 TCW Pink Sapphire Elephant Ring in 18K Gold With Brown Diamonds

$40,000

About

The Wendy Brandes "Maneater" collection consists of seven one-of-a-kind rings, each of which features a triumphant creature on top, with a tiny man tucked away inside of the band. The "Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer" ring is the sixth in this high-concept jewelry series, and one of the most whimsical designs. Here, an 18K rose gold elephant adorned with pink sapphires stands on a "bar" of 18K yellow gold studded with brown diamonds. The elephant represents the hallucination of the tipsy writer hidden inside of the band, clasping a wine bottle and a diamond-filled wine glass. The intricate design took my artisans months to complete. And yes, the writer's visage is based on Cary Grant, while the concept of the pink elephant hallucination was inspired by writer Jack London. 23.6 grams of 18K rose, yellow, & white gold, satin finish. 262 pink sapphires, totaling 2 carats. 174 brown diamonds, totaling 2.15 carats. 3 small white diamonds. 1 small ruby. Size 6. One-of-a-kind. AGTA Spectrum Award Honorary Mention. Made in New York City.

About the Maker

Wendy Brandes Jewelry

About the Designer: Jewelry design is Wendy Brandes’s second career. Wendy started out as a business journalist at the Wall Street Journal and CNN, later switching to pop-culture coverage during her tenure as managing editor of People magazine’s website. Her story-telling skills remain as strong as ever, but they’re now expressed in carat weight and grams of gold instead of word count. Wendy's “Fine Jewelry for Witty People" is distinguished by its stellar workmanship; warm, satin finish; hidden and symbolic details, including mechanical parts; and wry commentary on everything from history to iPhone addiction. Her award-winning 18K yellow gold collection -- featured here -- is inspired by fascinating women, and all designs are limited-edition or one-of-a-kind. Wendy has been featured in the New York Times, W Magazine, and British Vogue, and her jewelry has been spotted on Rihanna, model Bella Hadid and Britney Spears.
