Karl Fritsch

(DE,1963)

Karl Fritsch has played around with every style, shape and tradition of the ring. Unwritten rules about the ring have been broken and no challenge has been left unturned. From very large and heavy to very tiny,  from playful to serious carat content. His rings never are what they seem and tell a story on their own. Whilst being famous for these, Karl is also a genius at one-off objects and silver work that perpetrate his signature style.
