Once and a while, you happen to find jewelry that captures a certain pure, feminine and romantic lightness and combines it with a dark, masculine almost armour-like feel. Shaun Leane knows how to capture this style, his colleague Stephen Webster has the same knack for dark romanticism. Now we can add another designer to the list, jewelry designer Cristina Ortiz.

Spanish born Cristina Ortiz has an extensive design background (Prada, Ferragamo, Maison Lanvin) and decided to take the plunge and start her eponymous jewelry line. Her first collection is inspired by angel wings. The first thing that popped up in my head when I saw Cristina Ortiz’s jewelry is “Goddess jewelry”. It is something a goddess would befit. Seriously, in my next life I want to reincarnate as a goddess, for the simple reason I would get to wear this jewelry. Forget superpowers and fighting for world peace, this jewelry would be the sole reason ;-)

This handmade rose gold ring is set with 0.80 carats of pavé set diamonds. Available at
