The object was inspired by the works of Kandinsky. Munique (Munich) was the city where Kandinsky was married and began his career. The ring’s bezel is one piece of multi-colored oval resin. It has a high polish and rounded edges with a flattened top surface. The black ring shank is one tapered piece ending in a circle which is fastened to the bottom of the oval.
