The Wellendorff Rings of the Year
Each year has its outstanding events and stands under a special star.
Wellendorff has been presenting a limited-edition Ring of the Year, expressing a unique theme on each ring. The Rings of the Year are numbered according to the year they are made – only a few women worldwide will be able to call this ring their own.
Ring of the Year 2018 Anything is Possible
Feeling inner strength and realising one’s own potential over and over again. This limited-edition Ring of the Year 2018 is a way for Wellendorff to send a message to all women who strive for more: Anything is possible.
Anything is Possible
The manufactory chose the lotus flower as the symbol of this inner strength. It grows out of murky waters, yet creates and protects its extraordinary beauty. It stands for renewal, a new beginning, and unlimited life force.
Limited and exclusive for 218 special women worldwide
The lotus blossom – stylised in yellow gold – shines forth from the Ring of the Year 2018 with its radiant, crystal-clear tones of aqua and turquoise. The powerful nuances vary vibrantly through an elaborate, hand-made colour-gradient that makes each ring a unique piece. The transparent cold enamel draws the gaze across the wonderfully shiny background of the ring. Delicate contours shine from the depths, almost as if one were actually looking down at the shadows of the lotus blossom cast under the surface of the water.
On the occasion of Wellendorff’s 125th anniversary, the Ring of the Year 2018 is the most valuable in the series: each individual blossom is beautifully highlighted by an arc of fine, brilliant white diamonds. They sparkle as vividly as fresh dewdrops on lotus leaves.
To signify this significant year for the wearer, a golden 2018 is embedded in the blossom. The trademark of this renowned manufactory, the golden Diamond W, shines in the midst of the powerful, crystal-blue cold enamel.
The Ring of the Year 2018 is composed of four individual rings made from 18-karat gold that are connected to each other, yet free to move. In this way, the wearer can rotate her piece of jewellery playfully on her finger, reminding herself over and over of her own strength and force. Inside the ring, the limited edition is numbered, and its encouraging German statement is contained forever in gold: Alles ist möglich (Anything is possible).
