Stacey Whale / Moritz Glik / Royal Asscher


Previous rings — like this one (follow the "trompe l'oeil" link) and this one — have used magnifying lenses to humorously enlarge a "cheap" diamond. In her "Illusion" series, however, New Zealand's Stacey Whale seals loose gems under a magnifying lens to give the impression that the stones are floating in liquid.




Fine jeweller Moritz Glik of New York has a similar idea with these rings featuring diamonds and gold chips enclosed in double white sapphires.
