RAMI ABBOUD: Studio Jewels from Lebanon

Lebanese contemporary jeweller Rami Abboud has put Beirut at the forefront of jewelry design thanks to his unique pieces. An extremely original designer and very brave and modern jeweller, Rami's experiments are rare amongst his contemporaries because he uses noble and fine stones but on the uncommon range like black diamonds or the boulder opal in the ring featured. His pieces are always on the edge and they have earned him well deserved recognition in New York like his presence in the exhibition Elegant Armor: the art of jewelry, at the Museum of Arts and Design.

I found this ring for sale at Aaron Faber, New York.
