There are few more distinctive jewelry styles than brutalism. Its beauty is in its unusual forms, inspired by the rougher parts of nature. Where other naturalistic design movements focused on the soft, rounded curves of flowering plants, brutalism draws inspiration by the more rugged parts of the earth: the bark of a tree, its knotty roots, or the face of a rocky cliff. This exemplary c1970 ring is incredible in its execution of the style. Its sculptural design creates a bold look, yet its layering and spacing gives it a bit of air and lightness. Three Akoya pearls center the piece and add a touch of softness. This miniature work of art was created by Birks of Montreal, among the finest Canadian jewelers. The ring is currently a size 4 3/4 and may be resized up or down upon request.
