Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Cycles Ring by Verda Alaton Cycles, 925 carat silver square ring, is designed with five movable plates connected to the center. Inspired by the talismans of West Africa, the plates symbolize the fingers, and the main body represents the palm. The designer brings together the idea of constant transformation and change, through infinite cycles and motion. The ring's surface reflects feminine light, and its geometric form represents strength. Cycles is a contemporary expression of rooted traditions and a way of taking them into the future.
