Diamantring designad av Jony Ive ute på auktion
Put a ring on it

En lite ovanlig diamantring designad av Apples evige designer Sir Jonathan Ive och Marc Newson kan nu äntligen bli din. Så om du alltid har drömt om att få en diamantring av Ive så är chansen här – men det kan komma att kosta dig någonstans mellan 150-250 000 dollar.

Ringen är skapad för product RED som är en  insamling för kampen mot HIV/AIDS i åtta afrikanska länder, vad som gör att Ive och Newsons diamantring står ut lite mer än en vanlig ring är att den är gjord helt av diamant.

För att förtydliga: hela ringen är gjord av diamant, ingen metall – bara diamant.

Auktionen av ringen kommer att äga rum i Miami den femte december på auktionshuset Sotheby som säger så här om ringen:

”Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s Chief Design Officer, and renowned industrial designer Marc Newson – having curated the (RED) auction five years ago – have, this year, designed a unique ring, made exclusively for (RED) by Diamond Foundry®. Consistent with their mutual obsession with transforming raw material into objects of value, Ive & Newson’s design is singular, clear and un-compromised by the traditional metal settings and bands that have previously been required to create ‘diamond rings’. Theirs will be created by removing material rather than adding – an ambition made possible by the extraordinary scale of the stone which will enable the ring to be completely made of this material.

Creating a ring-shaped diamond is no small feat; the diamond block will be faceted with several thousand facets, some of which are as small as several hundred micrometers. The interior ring will be cylindrically cut out for the desired smoothness using a micrometer thick water jet inside which a laser beam is cast. The finished ring will have between 2000-3000 facets which has never been seen before on a single piece.

The gemstone will be created by Diamond Foundry®, the certified carbon neutral diamond producer who has pioneered and developed the proprietary technology to form diamonds safely and sustainably.”
