Bibi van der Velden has created an entire collection centred on this simian muse. Her Monkey collection is inspired by their mischievous and intelligent nature, with motifs of climbing monkeys, bananas and tropical leaves. The Monkey ring recreates an entire troupe of climbing monkeys, etched out in pavé brown diamonds with palm trees made of green tsavorites. The ring is a combination of rose and yellow gold, and sterling silver. It also holds a secret - the Monkey ring opens up, revealing a small Banana ring from the same collection.
