collectorsitems:

Above left: Ring by Stephen Webster (from the ‘Midnight over the Caspian Sea’ collection), right: Ring by (one of my favorite contemporary designers) Lydia Courteille. Cufflinks from around 1890. I don’t like any of these, but again I find the similarities…quite uneccessary. Pictures from ProfessionalJeweller / NET-A-PORTER / Bentley & Skinner, all found somewhere on Pinterest (thanks to the pinners!).
