Deception

This piece of deceptive jewellery is inspired by the animal’s camouflage technique of countershading, where the surface of an animal is darker on the upper side and lighter on the underside of the body. Transfering the idea onto jewellery, the colours on each side of the gemstone facet are adjusted, so the gemstone is completely “disappeared" under certain light source and angle of viewing. This also creates an impression of a broken chord. Although the gemstones here are made to be “invisible” whereas traditionally they are usually the centre of attention, they are as important and valuable to this piece of jewellery.
