TESTUDO, a symbol of protection. In ancient Viking and Roman warfare, the Testudo formation was a type of shield wall, a military tactic where soldiers used their shields to form a tortoise-like protective cover.
SHIELD™ ring in sterling silver and 18kt yellow gold set with faceted spessartites and brilliant-cut diamonds; size 7, as shown.
As pieces are made by hand, often using one-of-a-kind gems, the custom process allows us to create a similar concept/version, but one reflective of your specific needs and aesthetic.
Weaving historic and symbolic references, inspired by Norse mythology, SHIELD™ explores the fusion and synergy of male and female power.
Yellow gold is the metal of our past and representative of the sun; thus harbours its strength, beauty and power.
The white of silver perfectly balances the piece with femininity and the mystery of moonlight.
