To showcase a tiny “world within a world” is the goal of the breathtaking rings by Italian jewelry brand Dreamboule, founded in 2018 by Ben Crocco, an alumnus of the Swiss watch brand Hublot. The cabochon cocktail rings feature tiny scenes erected on watch bezels in 18k gold and precious gemstones—frozen forever inside a scratchproof sapphire glass flooded by an undisclosed liquid Crocco calls a “dream solution.” It took four years of research and development to figure out how to bring these rings to life. Clearly, they were worth the wait.
