Ring, from Garden of Delight Spring / Summer 2013 collection, 2012
A small, golden bee sits delicately between two fingers on one side of this open-ended ring. A simple pearl plays the role of “flower.” The intricately enameled bee hovers, studying the pearl as an object on which to light. The golden bee contrasts with the luminous pearl as they both appear to defy gravity in the open setting. Delettrez is a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family.
