Throughout history, light has been essential to jewelry design: gold is polished until it shines like a mirror, gems are precisely cut to reflect light and sparkle.

We take this fascination with light to a new level. Our award-winning technology, developed at EPFL and Rayform, over years of scientific research, allows crafting a gold surface so precise that rays of light are reflected to form a meaningful image, a personal message painted with light. Illumination can be artificial, but sunlight best reveals the hidden image.

Using advanced optical simulation, we calculate the precise surface of your ring so that light is concentrated to reveal your message. We then structure the ring surface in a multi-step process using high-precision tools. Finally, the ring is carefully polished by hand to perfection.

Even with their astounding properties, the surfaces we produce are beautiful and smooth, perfectly blending into the ring’s elegant design. As long as the surface is shiny, scratches will not affect the reflection and the ring can be repolished.

The brief was set: to create rings made of gold, diamonds and light. Radiance refined and unified in a single ring. The starting point for the most challenging and inspirational jewelry design project I’ve ever worked on. THE RAYY ring collections are the result of a design process exploring abstraction and redefining jewelry. A quest for simplicity and timelessness. To achieve pieces that speak for themselves, when they begin to whisper with light.

My creative process is guided by three main criteria, a constant obsession of mine: abstraction, modernity and purity.

I never think: “Let’s make a ring”. My creative process often begins with an abstract idea, such as: “I want to wear a gold dot.” The interaction between the shape and how it meets the body begins, until it seems effortless and becomes evident. An artistic and conceptual rather than a traditional approach to jewelry design.

I love reshaping and reinterpreting the “Classics”, giving them a twist and thinking differently about their construction. Free from the constraints of the past. Keeping in mind their substance as the main rule of the game, and then refining and updating.

To rid of all decorative elements and focus on pure and simple shapes. Abstraction and clear lines, retaining only the essence. Shaping and reshaping until the strength of the form remains.
