Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson Design All-Diamond Ring for (RED) Charity Auction

Posted November 12, 2018 at 6:38pm by iClarified
Jonathan Ive, Chief Design Officer at Apple, and Marc Newson, industrial designer, have created an all-diamond ring for the (RED) charity auction. The piece is officially called 'THE (RED) DIAMOND RING' and is estimated to sell for around $150,000 - $250,000.

Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s Chief Design Officer, and renowned industrial designer Marc Newson - having curated the (RED) auction five years ago - have, this year, designed a unique ring, made exclusively for (RED) by Diamond Foundry. Consistent with their mutual obsession with transforming raw material into objects of value, Ive & Newson’s design is singular, clear and un-compromised by the traditional metal settings and bands that have previously been required to create ‘diamond rings’. Theirs will be created by removing material rather than adding - an ambition made possible by the extraordinary scale of the stone which will enable the ring to be completely made of this material.

Creating a ring-shaped diamond is no small feat; the diamond block will be faceted with several thousand facets, some of which are as small as several hundred micrometers. The interior ring will be cylindrically cut out for the desired smoothness using a micrometer thick water jet inside which a laser beam is cast. The finished ring will have between 2000-3000 facets which has never been seen before on a single piece.

The gemstone will be created by Diamond Foundry, the certified carbon neutral diamond producer who has pioneered and developed the proprietary technology to form diamonds safely and sustainably.

The (RED) Auction takes place December 5, 2018 at 7:00 PM EST. Hit the link below for more details...
