japan-based design firm torafu architects has developed ‘gold wedding ring’. the jewelry piece gradually transforms as the
thin exterior coat of silver plating rubs away to reveal a gold band underneath. the creative agency tells designboom that
the ring band actively portrays ‘the time shared between two people’ as the individuals wearing the set displays this passage of time
through the wear and tear. ‘gold wedding ring’ has been developed in both rounded and squared bands as the 18 carat gold may be unveiled
in either set of dimensions. the piece is available at deux poissons in tokyo, japan.
