Carved cast and fabricated ring 18k gold with 23 white diamonds set in platinum, nestles between fingers for a comfortable fit.

This piece alludes to the contractile tentacles of the squid, considering the gold diamond engagement ring as a symbol of captivity. As diamonds irresistibly attract our attention, so the suction cups lining the tentacles inescapably grip the squid’s prey. As lustrous gold is both soft and durable, so the muscular tentacles are both viscous and crushing.
