Hannah Warner: defying Del Boy
The signet ring; for years it symbolised the wealthy, money-making upbringing of men in suits making business deals over lunch, but with the fresh new designs and female backing to match, has the signet ring joined Yorkies and McCoys in the no-longer-just-for-men group?
Hannah Warner is a jewellery fanatic at heart, with an educational backing from Wimbledon School of Art, London Metropolitan in metalwork and Gemological Institute of America in New York in gemology and diamond grading. All of her original designs are influenced by life around her, whether it is life, death or decay, she draws inspiration from her landscape.
Her newest endeavour out now is Skins, a collection of signet rings that don’t scream Only Fools and Horses. The first is Skin, based upon the underbelly of an alligator; the individual design will give anyone something to marvel at.
Finally there is the Alligator with Onyx, a fantastic ring with the pure deep black stone upon the face, and again the inspiration of the dangerous camouflaged water creature around the band of the ring, this will classically grunge up any look.
With all of the rings calling inspiration from all walks of nature, they create an unusual yet spectacular new trend, fitting into the array of textures this season, but reviving an old trend in a new fashion.
The signet ring is back.
