Giampaolo Babetto

Italian jeweller Giampaolo Babetto has had a long, much-celebrated career, beginning when he entered the Istituto d'Arte Pietro Selvatico in Padua in 1963. That's 43 years of creating "architectural objects for the body," as he likes to describe his geometric pieces. Pictured here is a red pigment and gold ring from 1993; not only does it look good, it's got two sizes built right in! To view more of his work, select a decade from the "archivio" menu in the navigation bar, wait for the entire page to load, then roll over the shadowy images for a full-colour version.
