Chunky gold, a ring stack, recycled diamonds, a signature designer aesthetic. This ring from the London-based Judith Peterhoff’s Orno collection has all of those very in-demand features rolled into one.
If that sounds like a mishmash, it isn’t—the wide statement ring, though comprising multiple attributes, appears crisp, clean, and wonderfully unique.
The ring pictured is a one of a kind—and has indeed been sold—but Peterhoff says requests often come in for look-alikes, which can be commissioned for any size or type of center stone.
This original version, though, was inspired by its half-carat old-cut center diamond. “I sourced the diamond from a vintage ring and immediately knew I needed to make a bold statement piece with it,” Peterhoff says. “I felt the stone needed a ring as striking, special, and individual as the stone.”
Peterhoff’s Orno collection is “inspired by perceived imperfections and celebrating what makes us unique,” according to the designer, a statement that’s exemplified beautifully with this ring—it looks so remarkably individual that one can only imagine how truly special it is to wear. “An old-cut diamond isn’t perfectly circular and has its own unique shape and cuts, which makes it truly individual, just like us,” says Peterhoff. “These irregularities are reflected in the texture of the ring and the setting for the stone.”
This ring marks one of the first “statement” pieces made by the jeweler, who introduced her eponymous brand in 2019. Made using recycled metals and stones—as is the case with all of her jewelry—it’s as worthy of fashion wear as it is for a wedding ring. For customers interested in similar styles, Peterhoff offers slim bands and a best-selling wide version without a center diamond—see more from the Orno collection here.
