Jony Ive and Marc Newson’s all-diamond ring revealed

Pictures have been revealed of the ring made by Apple’s departing design chief Jony Ive and his frequent collaborator, renowned designer Marc Newson, from a single enormous diamond.

The duo designed the all-diamond ring last year for AIDS charity (RED), whose chief operating officer Jennifer Lotito describes the piece as “a thing of absolute beauty and sustainability”.

Sotheby’s auctioned the ring at Design Miami in December 2018, where it was purchased by an anonymous buyer for US$256,250.

Since the whole ring, band included, is cut from one diamond and cannot be resized, it was crafted bespoke for the buyer after the auction.
