This quirky, unusual ring features my unique ‘Diablo’ mechanism, allowing the oxidised silver discs to roll and spin across the top of the sterling silver frame.
Handmade in my studio using traditional silversmithing techniques, the ring and top frame are constructed from sterling silver then finished to a soft matt polish. The ‘diablo’ mechanism is formed from the two oxidised silver discs secured with a hand-tapped screw and screw thread between them, allowing them to roll and spin freely through the frame.
Comfortable to wear, and great fun for those who like to ‘play’ with their jewellery!
This one-of-a-kind design is available in a UK size O only.
The ‘Diablo’ discs are 6mm in diameter and approx. 2mm deep each. The frame sits about 7mm above the top of the finger. The ring band width is 6mm.
Hallmarked with my own maker’s mark at the London Assay Office and presented in a a Claire Wood Designer Jeweller gift box.

I've always been fascinated by the way people interact and 'play' with the jewellery that they wear, usually when they are 'thinking deeply' or having a bit of a daydream!
I'm also really interested in mechanical engineering and the way things 'work', so the two have been linked together in my kinetic designs, to form unusual and intriguing jewels.
This collection of kinetic designs came about after I had watched acrobats performing with the ‘diablo’, a two-part ‘cone-to-cone’ shape which magically spins along a piece of wire, controlled by their expert movements. I bought my own version, but could never make it work in quite the same amazing way! The engineer in me decided to create a mechanism that would allow me to bring similar movement to my jewellery, and these pieces are the result...
