This gorgeous ring is at once playful and sophisticated. Two beautiful pastel violet tanzanite baguettes lean towards each other as four brilliant green rosecut emeralds dance around and in between them. The colorful gemstones are bezel set in a rustic hand carved 14 karat yellow gold band.
Lio & Linn is a design collaboration between metalsmith Masumi Hayashi and woodworker Ryu Iida. The two work side by side in their Brooklyn studio, where they exchange ideas and experiment with materials and working methods. Hayashi's delicate jewelry is inspired and informed by nature, and Iida's furniture has a distinctly modern bent. Together, they collaborate on precious metal and wood objects that incorporate both of their aesthetic sensibilities.
