In this collection of rings, master German jeweler Gunter Wermekes brings together another unlikely combination of wood and stainless steel. The Grenadill Rings feature square stainless steel bands ornamented with three-dimensional square and rectangular cuts of jet black Grenadilla, a hard, close grain wood. Here, Wermekes elevates wood from a common material to a treasured item. Known for his combinations of unlikely pairs, Wermekes was the first to combine stainless steel, an industrial material with the timeless beauty of diamonds into a complete jewelry collection. He believes that every material speaks its own language; that stainless steel speak of today, of building, and of making future plans, while wood, on the other hand, conveys a timeless quality of strength and tradition.
