Our first STEM Jewel starts with a beautiful bang, by way of Katharina Kraus’s “Imbalance Ring”!
In the spirit of the scientific method, this one-of-a-kind jewel is an experimental investigation of the natural light reflection in gemstones - prasiolite, rock crystal and topaz. The highly technical stone cuts manipulate light effects by freely playing with angles, facets and updating traditional gemstone shapes. It’s a delicate exploration of fragility with the stones sitting free from its setting and elevated above the hand, so the wearer can play with light at different angles when wearing it.
“Imbalance Ring” is a 2018 finalist for the Deutscher Schmuck- und Edelsteinpreis Idar-Oberstein.
