HOW TO WEAR IT
Selini is authentically a very exclusive jewelry house from rural Lancashire where every piece is designed and handcrafted by Robin Girling whose main career as an engineer but his artistic sensibility drives him to create highly precise intricate jewelry. Thanks to the manufacturing techniques of his background, an example of his work is this beautiful ring in 18 Kt rose gold filled with beautiful white enamel and finished with diamonds from the Ivy Collection.
We are presenting this month as the Ines Arenas engagement ring for February not just for its design or for the evident level of perfection in the execution. We choose it for the beautiful meaning of the word Ivy which in Latin means header Helix, and Helix definition is an old-world vine with lobed evergreen leaves and black berrylike fruits.
Something that can hold the meaning “Evergreen” transmits peace, amplitude, kindness, and life. All these components create the right emotions for something that can never grow old: Love!
Understanding that the piece from Selini that you are wearing is redefined for one individual to be produced, that it’s necessary to master all the techniques, and that working entirely alone to be able to produce a piece of art of this level is a unique concept in the jewelry industry.
