She knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw. How she longed to get out of that dark hall, and wander about among those beds of bright flowers and those cool fountains.
Inspired by the neglected garden of Miss Havisham or Mrs. Dinsmoor in the film adaptation of Charles Dickens, Great Expectations, the ring captures the first feelings of childhood overpowering love and how the innocent nature of youth can be thwarted by frustrated expectations of older generations. Reflecting on the stillness of her childhood, the designer feels that this ring encapsulates the vicious cycle and emotional hurt the older women of her family were unable to break and how their unmet expectations stole the beauty of the generations to come.
The Estella Fountain ring is an expression of the romantic perceptions we have in childhood and how these change with moral and spiritual growth in adulthood. The ring features a rare rectangle cut Tourmaline surrounded by grey brilliants, set in 18 Karat solid gold.
The Tourmaline has been said to be a stone of reconciliation, a stone that fosters compassion and healing used to stabilise and reaffirm our Earth roots.
