Architecture Rings Celebrate the World’s Iconic Skylines of Beloved Cityscapes

Goldsmith Ola Shekhtman creates delicate pieces of jewelry inspired by the world’s most beloved cityscapes. Every few years, the artist moves to a different metropolis and allows her surroundings to seep into her creative ideas. She melts, rolls, saws, solders, and polishes metal by hand to form rings that reflect the architectural beauty of the world, highlighting iconic skylines recognized by just about everyone.

The recognizable details that go into each of Shekhtman’s designs are arguably the most appealing aspect of her craft, since it allows customers to carry popular landmarks from beloved cities–including London, Paris, and New York–with them all day. So far, other locales in her collection include Berlin, Washington D.C., Charleston, Boston, Hong Kong, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Stockholm, and Edinburgh.

A growing selection of these cityscape rings are currently available to purchase through Shekhtman’s Etsy store.

EDIT: Shekhtwoman Dreams commented in our Facebook feed, “Thank you for beautiful article! But it is 3D printed rings. I make 3D models and then print them out in different metals.”
