Many of us have heard of the seven deadly sins. This classification of vices is part of the Christian ethics and is something most Christian children learn from their first introductions to religion. The classification of the cardinal sins has been used since early Christianity to educate believers about humanity’s tendency to fall into sin. The capital vices are considered to be: wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. But what happens when these devious sins become gorgeous pieces of jewelry?
Internationally acclaimed jewelry designer, Stephen Webster has created an amazing and stunning collection, basing his inspiration on the cardinal sins. Each of the seven hand-crafted cocktail rings and pendants portray one of the “Seven Deadly Sins.” Among the stones used for this collection we name: Tanzanite, Peridot, Fire Opal, Aquamarine, Amethyst, Red Garnet and Diamonds. These stones have been set in 18ct Yellow or White Gold.
Only seven will be made for each ring and pendant. This means the collection will total 49 rings and 49 pendants. Given their rarity and the precious materials used for each piece of jewelry, you will have to empty your pockets if you wish to purchase one. The items have price tags ranging from £15,000 to £98,000.
The attention to detail can be seen in each of this rings, as well as the designer’s creativity. The Greed Ring stands out with its little stacks of coins. Envy is a green eyed monster. Pride has purple peacock feathers, while Sloth is an aquamarine sitting lazily on a red cushion. Wrath holds a chalice of poison, whereas Gluttony shows off its bejeweled red lips and shiny, white teeth. The writhing legs of Lust complete the Ring collection with style.
The “Seven Deadly Sins” Jewelry Collection by Stephen Webster is truly a work of beauty. Would you ignore its nefarious theme and fall into sin with one of these rings or pendants?
