Rachel Feinstein × Ippolita: Castle on the Rock Ring
Commissioned by the Jewish Museum to create a new piece of Judaica for its collection, Rachel Feinstein was inspired by medieval-style architectural Jewish marriage rings and tower-shaped ceremonial spice containers. In collaboration with Ippolita, she designed Marriage Ring, a fantastical ring in the form of a castle. Made of sterling silver dipped in 18-karat gold, it is almost a foot tall and weighs more than a pound.
On the occasion of this collaboration, Feinstein has also produced four different editions of related rings with Ippolita. One adaptation, Castle on the Rock, is a series of five handmade, one of a kind rings. Each ring features a miniature 18-karat gold castle—symbolizing the marital home of a new couple—atop a unique chrysoprase or malachite base.
