Are you looking for the perfect sparkler to wear whilst admiring your Damien Hirst? A new collection of jewellery designed by Turner prize winning artist Damien Hirst and American fine jewellery house Hoorsenbuhs is launching soon...
The Cathedral Collection includes a contemporary rosary and matching ring, set with rubies, white diamonds and black diamonds. These “portable sculptures” are available in 18k yellow gold, rose gold. Both pieces are limited editions of just 25 and each has been stamped and numbered.
Damien Hirst isn’t the first major artist to experiment with making jewellery. There’s a little-chartered tradition of jewellery-making by early 20th-century artists. Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque both made jewellery late in the careers, as did Surrealists Salvador Dali and Man Ray. Handmade jewellery by American sculptor Alexander Calder has sold at auction for as much as $35,000.
