Gorgeous Architecture-Inspired Rings

Can jewelry be considered art? Absolutely. Fourth generation Mexican jeweler Iker Ortiz has designed some beautiful architecture-inspired rings made of stainless steel, silver, titanium, gold, Corian and precious stones. In this new collection, called The Natural Aesthetic, Ortiz wanted to create jewelry that "let the gemstones speak to us."

These gorgeous pieces are now showing at PEEL gallery in Houston, Texas, a design and exhibition space that focuses on exquisitely made art and design.

Talk about a conversation piece.

Aren't they beautifully different?

Have a look at Calder's jewellery...all contemporary art collectors consider it art! they are sold at the major art auctions.
