A’Design Award Winner, 2020
“A’ Design Award and Competition is the worlds’ largest design competition awarding best designs, design concepts and products & services.”
The A’ Design Award was launched in 2010, entering the global design award space. This competition was developed as a part of a Ph.D. thesis in Politecnico di Milano and it was optimized for advertising and creating publicity for winners. The award-winning products and designs are highlighted to the international public via the A’ Design Award Gala-Night and Exhibition in Italy and they are communicated to all relevant press across the world.
Tanvi Garg was a proud winner of the A’Design awards in 2020. In an endeavour to relive feminine moods with elegance, the brand crafted a ring naming it ‘Blooming Beauty”. The elements of this ring are designed with a playful spirit. The petals are fused with plique-a-jour enamel which brightens with illumination, and maintains a dense character in tranquillity and dimness. Free movement of structured petals with movable diamond studded center ball highlights the easiness of innate elegance with bold decision making; thereby signifying how dynamics of efflorescence can fashion the blooming of an avant-garde.
The ring is inspired by night efflorescence water lilies, blooming their best at midnight. Just as lilies flower in the pleasant moonlight glaze, this ring’s structured petals and movable center ball can together be manoeuvred with wearer’s mood. These can be placed on fingers or on hand; signifying impactful flaunting, within one’s comfort zone. Thus, this polki diamond studded jewel is an embodiment of preserving one’s original self in quest of avant-garde, blooming in the moonlit inner peace.
Production Technology & Materials in Jewel Manufacturing
Following the impeccable tradition of ancient times, this ring’s prototype to final structure was altogether handcrafted. Petals were intricately detailed with the method of piqué-a-jour enamel. For their hue, hot magenta was meticulously fashioned with Purple Heart after multiple attempts to perfection. The polki diamond studded in center ball is the crown jewel in its original rough yet polished form. Finally, the silver-based ring has black and gold rhodium machinery polish for a final touch.
Unique Operational Feature
Highlight of this ring is that the user can play and interact by the way it is worn. Spreading out placement of structured leaves and movable centre ball can be placed on fingers or on hand. This dynamics of manoeuvring suits the mood of the wearer while elegantly flaunting a new look. The mobility also evolves light effect on petals fused with plique a jour enamel. Their colour, a blend of hot magenta with Purple Heart, further brightens up with illumination; thereby giving it a unique feature.
Research Abstract of Design Develoment
The idea to fashion this ring is a fancy recollection of the full bloom lilly, blossomed its best in midnight. The colour and dynamics of plique-a-jour enamelled petals under light, mirrors the brighten lilly in moonlight radiance. Natural material like silver with handcrafting technique is chosen for a natural bent. Its assembly has motivated Indian craftsmanship and generated employment. Thus this jewel is an attempt to impersonate the magnificence of nature and a giveback to the environment.
While handcraftsmanship is a unique method to create an authentic jewel piece, it is indeed the toughest way to manufacture an ingenious one. The altogether handmade ring posed challenging in achieving the colour of its enamelled petals and then the dynamics of manoeuvring its structured petals and ball. Arduous methods were devised with multiple attempts to get the perfectly resembling colour of the inspirational lilly, as well as for state-of-art mechanism that follows the moods of the wearer.
