  • GISELE GANNE MOURNING ring
    boticca.com
    From the 'Mourning' collection, this is the most iconical piece of my collection: the Mourning ring. Skulls and diamond are solid 925 sterling silver and 18k gold plated. Mourning or memorial jewellery has been worn for centuries, especially during the Victorian era where funerals and the events attached to burying, immortalizing, and remembering the dead was of much importance. Common symbols used in mourning jewellery included forget-me-nots, flowers, hair of a loved one, hearts, crosses, ivy leaves, and more macabre symbols such as skulls, coffins and gravestones. I refer to these and to other old or ethnic customs , urban legends as the Black Widow who kill her husbands for their money and historical events as crimes, serial killers, and suicides… My mourning jewellery illustrates these different forms of death. Each piece tells a story about the deceased and their widow.
  • GISELE GANNE DIVORCE ring with white pearl

    The DIVORCE ring is 18 ct goldplated electroformed bird skull with white fresh water pearl. Due to the electroforming technique, each piece is unique. Mourning is not just about dead people, it is also about dead relationships and decaying marriages. Today, 42% of the marriages finish by divorce in UK and 38% in France. My divorce jewellery refers to old and contemporary wedding customs to illustrate this sort of mourning. As a French, most of these customs come from France as the Bride Globe which it is a present to the bride to put her bouquet and her crown after the wedding. All the decoration inside symbolize the union and give luck to the marriage. I use union and marriage symbols and subvert them to show the inevitability of the breakup, but also show that from these ashes may raise a new life.
