Unique Jewellery from the UK | The Battenburg Ring
Posted on 27 March 2015
As a child, I craved everything sweet. I would be the kid that would sneak down the stairs to the kitchen, climb on the sides to open up a door full of sugary delights. How happy and content I was when I had my favourite treats in the palm of my hands.
There are three delicacies that I favoured; a good old Wagon Wheel, A Fondant Fancy and then Mr Kipling's Battenburg. The Battenburg stands out to me because of how joyous I felt when I took the first bite into the sugary bar to reveal the warmest and kindest colours of soft yellow and bright pink.
Tessa Metcalfe has re-enacted that feeling through her memories of childhood delicacies and her love for birds and created what can only be described as a mouth watering piece of art that sits elegantly on your finger. Tessa's interpretation of the Battenburg is named 'The Battenburg Triptych' and features a huge yellow Citrine centre piece accompanied with two elegant pink Rubies set in her infamous Pigeon Claws.
The Battenburg Triptych expresses both a daring edge with a cute, sweet feel and is worn by the darling trend setters of our generation.
