TORAFU ARCHITECTS
TORAFU ARCHITECTS was founded by Koichi Suzuno and Shinya Kamuro in 2004 in Japan. They employ a working approach based on architectural thinking. Works by the duo include a diverse range of products, from architectural design to interior design, exhibition space design, product design, and spatial installations etc.
Their first work of jewelry was “gold wedding ring” in 2012. This series has been receiving a lot of attention and orders from all over the world.

TORAFU ARCHITECTS’s “solitaire ring” is made of very minimum elements: a diamond and 0.7mm-wide 18K gold band that goes directly through the diamond with a laser pierced hole. The thinness of the band allows the brilliant-cut diamond to appear bigger. The starting point of design process was a simple idea to make a hole directly in a diamond, the most solid gemstone, instead of setting a stone on a base. Sophisticated handwork by craftsmen made this idea possible to realize.

“solitaire ring” can be a special engagement ring and can be enjoyed for everyday use as a fashion ring as well. You can also create your own ring by selecting other kinds of stones, such as sapphire and topaz, and band materials.
