The Tiffany-setting diamond engagement ring: design classic, symbol of marital bliss, emblem of our status-obsessed culture. byAMT's jewelry line puts a playful spin on this icon. The Tiffany ring's silhouette and basic shape remains intact, but rendered in different materials, colors, and widths.

byAMT also offers sterling silver, 14-karat gold, and platinum versions of the ring. These metals have been deemed "precious" because they're relatively rare, they're shiny, and they last. We value diamonds because they're even more rare, shinier, and durable (and often fraught with human rights concerns). No wonder they are so expensive. Do we really need one to prove our love? byAMT rings are precious for their creativity, ingenuity, style, and wit–not their glittery bits.

The metal rings include a "too-thin-to-be an engagement ring" (2mm), "perfect diamond ring size" (4mm), a square 9mm size. The thinnest rings hint at the fragility of marriage and commitment. The largest is a sly commentary on our culture's competitive nature when it comes to conspicuous consumption: "my diamond is bigger than yours." The Diamond Rings invite us to step back, get some perspective, and even laugh at ourselves.

Made in: Cast & Hand Finished in sterling silver in New York City

As part of her bling_blink series, Alissia Melka-Teichroew's Diamond Rings question our material obsessions by playfully emulating a classic Tiffany setting, an all-too familiar symbol of luxury.

The Diamond Rings are produced in various extrusion-like lengths, perhaps replacing the notion of carat value with a range of dimensions.

The rings, which are available in gold, silver, and a colorful range of plastic, can be found at the MOMA store in New York and The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.


How to determine your ring size

Wrap a piece of string or a strip of paper around your finger.
Mark the point where the two ends meet.
Measure the string or paper against a ruler to get the circumference of your finger.
Divide that by 3.14 to get the diameter of your finger.
Look up your ring size using the guide below.

7.............17.35..............54.0
