Artist list

Karl Fritsch

German jeweller Karl Fritsch is a cult jewellery icon and the maker of the most covetable rings in the world. Now residing in New Zealand, Fritsch uses gold, silver and precious stones to make pieces that seem to have been unearthed from some distant, romantic era... but the imaginary ravages of time and entropy have left these rings more fascinating, more compelling and more desirable than ever. 

Collected with passion by fashion and art movers and shakers, and awarded the highest honours in contemporary jewellery, Fritsch's work is also held in public collections worldwide, including our own NGV. 

Presented as part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2012.
