The Niessing Tension Ring has won numerous design awards since its invention in 1979. The ring’s band securely holds a ‘floating’ diamond thanks to the inherent tension of work-hardened precious metal. The Niessing Ring has rightfully distinguished itself as an icon of modern jewellery culture and has been accepted into the permanent collections of museums worldwide.

Niessing’s collections wed the classical with the experimental and in the course of its 140-year plus history, this company has amassed a unique wealth of experience in the art of working with precious metals. This tradition expresses itself in the interplay between skilled craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology.

Jewellery aficionados can experience Niessing in its purest form in select galleries all over the world. Niessing jewellery appeals to all senses. Small, delicate pieces or dramatic eye-catchers; they are softly rounded with a silky touch or clear, cubical and pure. Their message is as individual as their wearer’s personality: sometimes its candour, sometimes placidity and distance.

Niessing collections are available in Scotland exclusively at ORRO.
