Ring Calyx n. 1, nylon and stainless steel
Calyx is the name for that part of flowers that protects the blooming petals, but once the blossoming has ended is often shed, or withers and dries off. The contemporary artists Nitz & Schieck, however, have an eye not only for the obvious part of flowers and plants, but concentrate on those elements which we normally at best see unconsciously. And yet, as this ring shows, nature provides us with most stunning and beautiful treasures. What even plants do no longer need, is here taken and turned into a stunning design.
The design is combined with an advanced technique of 3D printed nylon. Such very light, but strong and flexible material interacts with the idea of covering and protecting, as it resists pressure while being bent. While the surface of the material is slightly porous and has a granular look, even short contact with water does not harm the material or colour.
Nevertheless, please make sure, in order to maintain the high quality of your product, avoid contact with saltwater, soap and excessive exposure to sun.The stones are made from 3D printed stainless steel with added 0,5 micron gold plated.
The ring is available in sizes 52 – 62 (mm circumference of finger). If you are unsure about your ring size, you can convert the inner diameter of one of your rings (diameter in mm multiplied by 3,14) or find assistance at a jewellry store.
