The 2021 Ring of the Year LIFE IS.
change. Movement. Everything flows. Every moment is a gift.
Let's celebrate the special moments of 2021.
LIFE IS a journey. No-one knows what destiny has in store, but one thing is certain: good times always follow bad. The challenges of 2020 illustrate this clearly – never before had we been so aware of what matters and how precious time is with our loved ones. With this 2021 Ring of the Year LIFE IS, we celebrate these countless wonderful moments – life, in all its rich variety.
For just 221 women worldwide.
A wave of sparkling diamonds curves around the 18-karat yellow gold ring. When the wearer turns it playfully around her finger, the wave of diamonds moves rhythmically up and down. The individually hand-set diamonds come to life and become an array of sparkling moments of happiness, dancing around the finger – an enduring rhythm of life.
The diamond band is framed by planes of brilliant white cold-enamel, an elegant colour combining pure white with transparent cold enamel, specially developed by Wellendorff. Once the goldsmith has engraved three levels of pattern relief into the gold, several layers of cold enamel are then applied by hand and painstakingly shaped and polished, imbuing the motifs of the LIFE IS ring with beguiling dynamism.
A decorated fan spans the golden number 2021, in which nestles a small, red heart. It represents the wearer’s one special moment in 2021. Signed with the Diamond W, LIFE IS embodies the Genuine Values of our family business. It is a ring for 221 women worldwide who love life – in all its rich variety. From Love. The Best.
