Like a flower Blossoming
The concept of 'Embrace' is centred around presentation and preservation of jewellery.
An idea is born, a ring is selected, a moment is chosen. 'Embrace' is a means of presentation, slowly unveiling the beauty of the ring chosen. As it is opened, the beauty of the ring within is unveiled. This is a means of going above and beyond to present the one you love with something truly special and unique.
A ring is forever, but it is not always worn, life ensues. There are dirty moments, unsafe circumstances. 'Embrace' gives you a safe, beautiful setting in which to store your precious items. Each time it is opened over your lifetime it is a reminder of the blossoming love that first brought you the ring.
Like the facets of a diamond
The future of 'Embrace'
'Embrace' is an early fully functional prototype. The next stage for this product is to develop it further into a pristine, high quality manufactured object.
'Embrace' is a provocative idea which can add a new dimension to gift giving and jewellery ownership.
The 'Embrace' concept does not stop at this item, this is a part of a developing series of elaborate containers, each one housing a different piece of jewellery with its own expressive way of opening. There are currently concepts in development for necklaces, earrings, watches, bracelets as well as other ring container designs.
