This is a marvellous and characteristic example of the highly individualistic work done by Walter Schluep. Heavily textured, architectonic elements in silver (including a wide back to the band which allows it to stand as a freestanding small sculpture when not being worn), inset with two heavy gold rods which go front to back, and the 3 small diamonds tube set in gold, also running right through the piece.
