Situ Neon Rings

The new range of Situ Diamond Jewellery rings marks the revival of the neon trend, introducing brightly coloured rings in yellow, green, blue, orange, pink and purple to match the current clothing trends. A must-have for summer, these rings can also be made up in any colour or shape combination of your choice. The collection makes for fun, bold accessories for both night and day - they light up under fluorescent lighting and glow in the sunlight, so they're bound to catch someone's eye wherever you go. A collaboration between jewellery designers Philippa Green and Ida Elsje, and architect Gregory Katz, resulted in Situ Diamond Jewellery which combines the enduring glamour and rarity of brilliant-cut diamonds with precious metals and high-tech polymer resin. Inspired by suspended steel beams often used in architecture, each ring is produced using fluorescent coloured resin, uniquely faceted with the 9ct gold bar and diamond suspended independently above the luminous layer. The rings cost R2 900 each and are available at Situ Diamond Jewellery, 76 Church Street, Cape Town or online at situ.co.za. For more information visit the website or call 021-424-1101.
