Small glowing spheres, deep black or sunny yellow, roll in the ring like magic pearls: Swing along!
Abacus is pure play for all senses. You can feel the small spheres just slightly projecting above the edge of the ring. You can listen to the soft tinkle that changes with each different combination of materials. You can watch the spheres rolling in the ring. Feel the strong, wide ring—and the playful, little balls.
Fine contrasts in perfect harmony
Kinetic jewelry in perfection
Abacus is made from Niessing stainless steel. The ring is wide and has a strong presence; at the same time the profile is slender and the edges are rounded on the inside, making it comfortable to wear. In one place, the solid ring is interrupted by a gap: This is where the three spheres can move freely.
The solid ring is steady, clear, and calm. The pearly spheres are playful, free, and yet connected. A fine contrast, merged in beautiful harmony.
Playful and clear
Niessing Abacus is based on counting frames as they were already used in antiquity. Beads of wood or glass that could be slid along wires served for counting. In parts of Eastern Europe and Asia, abaci are still in use even today.
Niessing Abacus is a jewelry that invites to play; it is technology for the senses: Swing along!
