German designer Britta Schwalm has beautifully visualised the connection mothers have to their babies. Her unusual yet elegant collection of rings each carry a sleeping baby, either on the outside or on the inside of the ring setting. Britta Schwalm’s label is called Glueckskind®, which can be translated as Blessed Child, and this is how the rings are best understood. They are not just a piece of jewellery like any other. The meaning behind them, a manifestation of the deeply emotional mother-child relationship, is as important as the elegant design of the ring itself.
