FOC Reality Check

“Reality Check” is a composable ring by Josien Pieters, winning project of the first FOC Talents competition brief created by jewellery designer Ted Noten in early 2010. The challenge for the Freedom Of Creation Talents was, to develop a new wedding ring design showing a research into the phenomenon of wedding rings throughout history and different cultures, and for which 3D Printing is the only option for its realization.

The jury praised Josiens’ witty approach to marriage and how she has translated both the historic Claddagh symbolism and today’s marriage reality into a playful ring. The ring, consisting of 3 pieces, can be worn in different configurations. Just like the historic Claddagh ring each item of ‘Reality Check’ is a symbol for marital status, allowing the wearer to communicate this to the outside world.


Reality Check is available in our online store
