There’s nothing quite like experiencing a piece of jewellery in real life: holding it, feeling its grooves, materiality, and of course trying it on. The B.V.D.V. Showroom in Amsterdam is always open by appointment, with an expert team ready to help with fitting, styling, and be-spoke requests. If you can’t make it to the studio, we also offer a try-at-home service, and expert advice delivered virtually.
The Diamond Alligator Wrap Ring is a new, glistening take on Bibi van der Velden’s hit Alligator Wrap Ring, a design whose limited edition of 25 pieces entirely sold out. Now, the ring is reimagined with rows of twinkling diamonds adorning its body. This highly detailed design is crafted in 18k yellow gold, and is articulated, so that its body wraps around the finger. In a playful touch, the alligator’s jaws snap shut to close the ring, while the design opens at the click of a catch inset into the creature’s head. Each part of the alligator moves, from its tail that swishes side to side, to its delicate legs. Green tsavorites depict the alligator’s eyes, while white diamonds embellish its body. This versatile design can also be worn as a pendant, with the alligator extended and a chain threaded through its mouth. When not being worn, display this striking piece with its body lying flat, as an elegant art object.
