Loving this beautiful and unusual ring from Dalila Barkache, Parisian jewellery designer, who turned her back at the fashion capital in 2006 to seek her fortune in Beirut where she opened Lebanon’s first Comme des Garçons pop-up shop that same year. And though she has since returned to Paris her jewellery is still handcrafted in a small atelier back in Beirut. When asked about this rather unusual concept, Dalila explains “But traveling between Europe and the Middle East is invigorating. It’s a nontraditional way of working that is essential to my inspiration.”
Her Half Ruby Ring along with some other pieces is available from London’s Dover Street Market in-store and online.
