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!

NIESSING ARTIST

Niessing Artist reinterprets diamond jewelry in an entirely new style. The innovative jewelry system in platinum or in one of the Niessing Colors of gold merges completely with the
Niessing Coil, tracing its soft curve and highlighting the coil itself as a beautiful piece of jewelry: classic and modern, minimalist and magical, all at the same time.

Niessing Artist translates the Bauhaus principle »form follows function« to jewelry. Thanks to its sophisticated

design, Niessing Artist can be easily fit onto the Niessing Coil, where it has a safe hold.

Seven, nine, or eleven glistening diamonds dance on the Niessing Coil like sparkling spots of light. They follow their own enchanting rhythm in a stunning balancing act that is infused with artistic ease and grace. Let Niessing Artist work its spell on you!

NIESSING RING ROUND EDITION 40 ®

The Niessing Ring® embodies our deep roots in Bauhaus design like no other jewelry piece by Niessing.

Is it possible for a ring to hold a diamond completely without a setting? In the 1970s, Ursula Exner, the granddaughter of the Niessing founder, and Walter Wittek, the sculptor from Vreden, dealt with this question. After a long time of research and experiments, the idea of the freely floating diamond was born in 1979.

For 40 years, the Niessing Ring® has been providing fascination by its reduction to the essential.

Held absolutely secure in only two minute points between the ends of a ring band, the diamond is visible from all around, apparently floating.

Surrounded overall by light, the diamond is brought to life, glowing in all colors. A ring and a floating diamond is all it takes for the original tension ring.

We are celebrating the birthday of the design icon Niessing Ring® Round with an exclusive edition limited strictly to the year 2019. Platinum or gold in the most beautiful Niessing Colors meet brilliant-cut diamonds of 0.40 ct—by request, particularly precious Canadian diamonds. Inside the ring, a stamped »4« and a small diamond set next to it together read »40«. This special mark distinguishes the Edition 40 rings as exclusive collector’s items.

Celebrate the original!

NIESSING ARCHITECTURE

Modern architecture playfully explores round and angular forms, static and dynamic elements, colors and materials. Niessing Architecture similarly has its origin in the experiment. Structures and
patterns, ovals, circles, and cylinders: The play with shapes is a never-ending, inexhaustible source of inspiration for the work of the Niessing designers.

Niessing Architecture is an invitation to play and to feel, to combine and to collect, to wear on their own or together. Each Niessing Architecture ring has its own effect; and they all fit smoothly to one another. Monochrome, colored, or with one of the beautiful color flows Niessing aura® or Niessing Solaris?

Whatever your choice, the rings’ unique structure and their outstanding play with light and shade will add a new dimension to the Niessing Colors of precious metal.

With their rippling outline and their special structure, Niessing Architecture rings create an unusual tactile appeal. They make extravagant company, for example for Niessing Color Rings or for a Niessing Engagement Ring or a Niessing Wedding Ring.

Create your very own architectural ring highlights with Niessing Architecture Structure, Line, and Step.
