In celebration of the New Year, a deeply rooted design instinct and as part of our
10 year anniversary, Annoushka has collaborated with coveted Chinese jeweller
Austy Lee, to create four exquisite One of a Kind sculptural rings inspired by her ancestral homeland, Russia.
These unique creations demonstrate the superb craftsmanship of high jewellery
in a fresh and creative expression. Paying tribute to the Touch Wood Collection, each ring contains a slice of wood, making them as talismanic as they are majestic. Inspired by the domes of Russian churches, the two designers have concocted a riot of colour, detail and imagination for the hand. Each domed palace ring is named after four Russian cities: St Petersburg, Moscow, Kazan and Sochi. Regal golden pearls, diamonds and precious stones evoke the colourful skies and landscapes of the cities.
“I have always loved statement jewellery where there is no compromise.
Austy Lee’s jewellery is the perfect example of that: exquisitely crafted and beautifully detailed, it is wearable sculpture, rich in colour and complexity.
Meeting Austy was serendipitous and I am so glad I wandered into his treasure trove of a studio in Hong Kong. His enthusiasm when he introduced me to his beguiling collection had me smitten on the idea of working together and I am delighted to introduce his work to a global audience through Annoushka.”

Austy’s technical flair is showcased in exquisite faceted pearls, hand-cut lapis, entrancing amethysts and even a movable central spire in the Kazan ring that detaches to reveal two separate rings.
Each Golden Pearl used is directly sourced from the fishermen of Ilo Ilo, a place very close to Annoushka’s heart.
Each ring is crafted in polished 18ct gold with accents of diamonds and are all sold in a handmade lapis lazuli box.
