NIESSING RING® HIGHEND

A clear, graphic outline is joined by a logical, powerful form: Niessing Ring®HighEnd is Bauhaus architecture for the hand. The ring opens outward at a nearly right angle. The straight surfaces hold the diamond like two protective tangent lines pointing toward the ring’s center. Surfaces and angles, straight and round forms are in perfect balance. From a wide bottom, the ring tapers unobtrusively toward the top, where ring band and diamond meet: a clear structure for a splendid performance.

There is virtually no limit to the size of the diamond. Niessing Ring®HighEnd is a splendid ring for splendid diamonds. Confidently, it lifts the diamond onto a stage, where everyone can see its beauty and sparkle. Niessing Ring®HighEnd comes in platinum or in gold in one of many Niessing Colors.

Niessing Ring® HighEnd is clear, straightforward, and to the point—at the same time, it is smoothly rounded on the inside for highest wearing comfort. A milestone in Niessing Ring®design history, HighEnd offers ultimate clarity for a large, precious diamond.

NIESSING SPHERES

A sphere is the form of all forms, round and tempting. A sphere, worn as a pendant on a Niessing Coil, is jewelry in perfect harmony: Simplicity and sensuousness, both taken to their highest level!

At the core of the Niessing Sphere is the art of reduction, clear forms that do away with redundant, decorative elements. That is typical of the sensuous minimalism of Bauhaus— and it is typical of Niessing design.

Each and every Niessing Sphere is a masterwork. The smaller spheres are solid and pleasantly weighty. The larger ones are forged by hand to form a sphere that is both sturdy and lightweight thanks to an innovative laser method.

All spheres are finished to perfection by hand in our manufactory.

Niessing Spheres are manufactured in platinum and in many of the Niessing Colors of gold. They come pure or with sparkling diamonds. A single diamond sparkles from the center of the solid sphere, where it is gently embedded and safely protected. Larger diamond spheres can have several sparkling spots, or a single line of light, to magically draw looks.

Niessing Spheres are an invitation to play, combine, and collect. Whatever your choice is, spheres are sensuous and timeless classics for the Niessing Coil.

100 WORDS FOR 100 YEARS OF BAUHAUS

Niessing’s design philosophy is rooted in Bauhaus. We create jewelry without decorative elements, jewelry that always remains up to date. We take inspiration from natural phenomena and the sensuous minimalism of Bauhaus architecture. We want to break rules, strike out on new paths, and open locked doors. We see traditional craftsmanship, high-tech innovation, and visionary design as inseparable. To us, less is more: the 40-year-old Niessing Ring® stands as beautiful evidence. In this year of Bauhaus, we look back with pride—and ahead with eagerness. Enjoy many new and unique designs; celebrate our timeless jewelry classics with us. Typically Niessing!

NIESSING RING® BAUHAUS

Bauhaus architecture thrives on transparency and open, light-flooded spaces. The boundaries between inside and outside dissolve. Niessing’s floating diamond ring takes Bauhaus ideas further, and translates them in terms of jewelry. The ring holds the diamond entirely without a setting, solely by the tension in the precious metal. Diamond and ring become one; the diamond receives the greatest possible degree of freedom and light.

The Bauhaus theory of colors and forms associates blue with the circle, red with the square, and yellow with the triangle.

Three Bauhaus tension rings embrace this idea and combine platinum with a round brilliant-cut, Classic Red gold with a square princess-cut, and Classic Yellow gold with a triangular trilliant-cut diamond.

The diamond is set laterally into the wide ring band, creating a boldly dynamic and spectacularly different tension ring. Celebrate 100 years of Bauhaus with us—and venture a new look at the floating diamond!
