When I was a kid and I used to help my stepfather on home improvement projects I often ended up trying on copper tubing and six-sixded nuts on as rings. Azature, a young and brooding jewelry designer, has taken that six-sided design and turned it into a fabulous piece of jewelry. The Hollywood-based designer has an abiding love for black, using black diamonds and a sterling-platinum alloy to craft high-end bangles, necklaces and rings for both men and women. Many of his designs have an industrial rough-edged look without being hopelessly gimmicky. They are powerful.
The piece shown above features five carats of Russian black diamonds and sells for $12,900.
