Francesca Villa

Being Crystal Woof Ring


The Being Crystal collection is inspired by Francesca Villa's travels and stories told to her by family. The captivating pieces are recreated by a team of skilled artisans in her Italian atelier.

Essex Reverse rock crystal carving and painting is one of the few art forms of modern times to develop in secrecy, being passed on from one generation to the next. The popularity of these "tiny masterpieces" began in the second half of 19th century and soared as the twentieth century began and they remained quite fashionable until the early 1930’s.

This 'Being' ring depicts a Fox Terrier painted on vintage crystal surrounded by diamonds and yellow citrines.
