Sitting on a gracefully curved pave diamond band, two love birds lean toward each other, their beaks nuzzled close together, as if the birds were staring into each other’s eyes. The larger bird, with a citrine body, looks down lovingly at the smaller, tourmaline bird. The diamond band that the birds are perched on has a flowing curve reminiscent of a telephone wire or tree branch. Part of Lorenz Bäumer’s Inséparables collection, the title of this piece suggests these birds have a lifelong love and cannot bear to be apart. The narrative evoked by this lovely piece of jewelry makes it the perfect romantic gift.
The details of this ring are what make it special. Though it is figural, this brilliant designer gave the ring a low profile, so it is comfortable to wear and rests beautifully on the hand. There are 28 tiny diamonds that are pave set into the band, and on each end, there are two even smaller, flush mount diamonds to give a pretty accent to the ring. The 18k pink gold has a wonderful hue, and both the citrine and tourmaline sparkle and compliment each other nicely.
Lorenz Bäumer is a French designer and the only independent jeweler on Place Vendôme—a historic square in Paris that has become an epicenter for Parisian culture and fashion, and home to many of the world’s top jewelry houses. Bäumer has collaborated with Chanel and Louis Vuitton, and famously designed the wedding tiara for Princess Charlène and Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The ring weighs 3.5 grams. It contains 0.20 of a carat of white diamonds; 0.60 of a carat of orange citrine; and 0.60 of a carat of tourmaline.

The ring comes with its original presentation box which has a magnetic closure and the Lorenz Bäumer insignia on the top.
