18ct yellow gold and channel-set black sapphire cocktail ring
The Longitude Ring is a great example of an every-day cocktail ring. Its neutral colour palette and classic shape makes it a really easy piece to pair with denim and weekend wear, as well as more formal workwear and other party jewellery. This ring really does go with anything.
Here the channel-set black sapphires replicate the globe's line of longitude, which famously passes through London at 0 degrees. Hailing from our For King and Country collection, this body of work draws its inspiration from the tools used to explore the seas during the Golden Age of Discovery – a period of European history marked by extensive exploration, dangerous sea-bound voyages and great adventures in the quest for colonial expansion and new, economic riches. Iconic navigational symbols of the sky – such as the stars and moon – here sit alongside forms recalling globes, maps and latitude lines. The heavy use of pearls in this collection is also important as it echoes the coveted bounty of the day, plundered in the East and brought to the West over this period of time.
