June is lively and floral—always ready to head out with flares, hot pants and a free spirit. She has her own playful nature being two rings but designed to be worn as one.
Women in the 1970s loved to use jewellery to make bold statements and were flamboyant and vibrant in their choices. Named after a strong mum, the concept of the ring is based on June’s actual ring from the 70s.
June is designed and made by our Goldsmith, Kati, who was inspired by the visuals of florals and kaleidoscope videos of the time. The ring is crafted in 18ct yellow gold with a 0.51ct brilliant round diamond and petals created from eight smaller diamonds.
Taranaki in the 70s: In 1970, Monica Brewster transformed New Plymouth’s Regent Theatre into the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, which Len Lye later called “the swingiest art gallery in the antipodes”—a sign that New Plymouth was finding its feet as a destination for artistic expression.
