Michael Aram Gooseberry Diamond Ring
The Michael Aram Gooseberry Collection was inspired by the delicate beauty found in naturally decaying foliage of the cape gooseberry. As the fruit matures, the lace-like veining that remains is the outer shell creates ghostly, other-wordly textures and shapes.
"I'm fascinated by the changed that this seemingly simple little fruit undergoes in its lifecycle. Although I love the taste of them, what really captures my attention is the casting that is often called a Chinese lantern. I also have a nostalgic association with them. Once a year there is a harvest of cape gooseberries in North India and the streets are full of push carts stacked high with bundles of them. It's a joyful image that inspires a sense of hope and enthusiasm." ~M.
