Custom Silhouette Ring
Inspired by 18th Century profiles and silhouettes, especially Verre églomisé examples made in France in the 1770's and 1780's. We have reinterpreted the art in gold and enamel.
With the help of CAD design, we create the silhouette of your personal image then enamel and finish the ring entirely by hand in our Austin workshop. 18k Rose gold & enamel.
The sample shown is a silhouette of our daughter. When told to turn profile for a digital shot, she roared like a lion. Perfectly capturing her spirit, it won out as the chosen image.
You will be contacted within 24 hours with detailed instructions on digitally capturing your loved one for the perfect silhouette.
From the 1770s silhouettes or profiles as they were also known became a fashionable alternative to painted miniatures. Pre-dating photography by decades, they were often set into rings and given as love tokens with the sentiment 'Je cherie jusqu'a son ombre', I cherish even her shadow.
