Alice Cicolini is a creative polymath. Author, curator and jewellery designer, she reignited her childhood love of gems during her time as director of arts and culture for the British Council in India.
Combine that with her MA in jewellery design at Central Saint Martins, exquisite colour sense and dedication to preserving ancient crafts from both East and West, and the result is contemporary jewellery with soul.
The east London-based designer’s Totem stacking ring unites her love of colour with convertibility and intricate pattern with sheer scale.
“The challenges are always in the details: matching the pattern, the colours of enamel and stone, the perfection in the way the three pieces slot together,” she says.
