This 225th anniversary collection consists of rings that recall the characteristic style elements of the famous Amsterdam bridges. The gold rings are enriched with brilliant-cut diamonds of top quality. In addition to diamonds, rose-cut black diamonds, sapphire, and tanzanite have also been used in the collection.
Jewellery inspired by the city
Who doesn’t know them: the many characteristic Amsterdam canals and bridges? They know how to seduce tourists, but also the people of Amsterdam themselves, again and again with their quirkiness and history. Amsterdam has more than 1500 bridges. With their characteristic appearance, they are jewels for the city.
History in the making
The first ring from the anniversary collection ‘Bridges of Amsterdam’ is an ode to the famous point in Amsterdam where most bridges can be seen one after the other. This point can be found at the corner Thorbeckeplein / Reguliersgracht. This location is also connected to Bonebakker history. It is the location where Bonebakker once opened its first branch.
Another ring from the collection – the anniversary edition – is handmade from 18 karats rose gold. The ring has an arch pattern that symbolizes elements from the famous bridges in Amsterdam. Brilliant diamonds, capture the light thanks to rose-cut (an antique cut) black diamond as the canals can sparkle in the sun and moonlight.
Amsterdam School Style
In the jewellery collection, there are also references to the characteristic architectural style, the ‘Amsterdam School’. This famous architectural style is characterised by beautiful wrought-iron balustrades, expressionist brickwork and striking use of colour. It is also these features that have been chosen as the unique style characteristics for the unique Bridges of Amsterdam Collection by Bonebakker Jewellery.
