Santoni by Zani Shield ring in pink and blue enamel

Santo by Zani’s designs unfold to reveal inner surprises. Founder Zani Gugelmann’s transformable aesthetic has culminated in her brand’s latest line of Shield rings, which take inspiration from the mechanical designs of masonic orb pendants of the Victoria era. Her designs have a more exuberant and pop-colour focus, like this colourful yellow gold and blue enamel ring set with light pink sapphire, which opens to reveal an inlayed diamond nestled inside a fuchsia enamel shell.

Be it a family heirloom or an engagement ring, jewellery has the power to mark a rite of passage or act as a microcosmic symbol of history. It’s this sentimentality which Stockholm-based jewellery brand All Blues has tapped into for its latest Copy concept. The brand have looked to both omelettes and the eating habits of serpents as inspiration behind its designs, but for its newest offering, they are taking an approach more personal to its customers. Offering a revolutionary and nostalgic approach to customisation, customers are able to transform a physical object or person into a silver necklace, keyring or paperweight, using All Blue’s innovative scanning pod. The service launches at Alex Eagle in London on Thursday, and whether you fancy a paperweight of your grandfather’s head or a keyring fob of your favourite childhood toy, the sentimental sensibility is down to you.

Foundrae founder Beth Bugdaycay creates jewellery designs boasting a host of mystical symbols. Her inspiration also draws from more everyday elements, and her idiosyncratic cigar ring looks to the designs of paper cigar bands. Now, in a nod both symbology and smoking paraphernalia, Bugdaycay has teamed up with Zippo on a collection of windproof sterling silver and 18-ct gold lighters, animated with magical symbols. The four limited edition styles are available to buy from Browns, and we think they’re a sure-fire accessory addition, whether you favour a cigarette, cigar or simply the allure of an illuminating accessory.
