Repossi/Robert Mapplethorpe: “Mechanic” Ring
As part of an ongoing collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Paris jewelry house Repossi has created a collection of fine jewelry inspired by the artist’s own handmade jewelry and his early photography.
This ring is inspired by a piece of hardware that caught Gaia Repossi’s eye among the beads, dice, and other found materials that Mapplethorpe stored in tackle boxes and incorporated into his necklaces. Made of white gold and diamonds, it uses a technically complex construction with hinges that allow the ring to move.
The Gagosian Shop is the exclusive retail partner for sixteen pieces of the Repossi/Robert Mapplethorpe collection.
