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, sapphires, and tanzanites have also been used in the collection.
Jewellery inspired by the city
Who is not familiar with the many characteristic Amsterdam canals and bridges? They know how to seduce tourists, and the citizens of Amsterdam alike with their quirkiness and history, again and again. Amsterdam has more than 1500 bridges. With their characteristic appearance, they are the jewels of the city.
History in the making
The first ring from the anniversary collection ‘Bridges of Amsterdam’ is an ode to the famous place in Amsterdam where most bridges can be seen in one single glance. This point can be found at the corner of Thorbeckeplein and Reguliersgracht. This location is also connected to Bonebakker’s history. It is the location where Bonebakker once opened its first shop.
Another ring from the collection – the Anniversary Edition – is handmade (like all the rings from this collection) from 18-karat 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 diamonds, and ressemble the canals that sparkle in the sun and moonlight.
Amsterdam School Style
In the jewellery collection, there are also references to the characteristic architectural style called ‘Amsterdam School’. This famous architectural style is characterised by beautiful wrought-iron balustrades, expressionist brickwork and a striking use of colour. These features have also been chosen as the unique style characteristics of the unique Bridges of Amsterdam Collection by Bonebakker Jewellery.
