KIPA Ring


The history, culture and textiles form Peru inspire the form for this ring style. Handmade in Peruvian mercury-free gold, these Kipa rings are a playful form of fine heirloom jewellery pieces. 

Kipa, meaning ‘seed’ in the native Quechua language from the Incas, these are the pieces that triggered the design for the Jarap’ay collection. They embrace a combination of ancient goldsmithing techniques from Peru and in particular, the use of the textile mantle ‘Lliclla’ worn by Peruvian women for millennia. Kipa are the beginning of the journey for designer Andrea Jose and her connection towards the Peruvian textile tradition.

As a statement ring, it can be worn at any occasion but they are better for those days when light and motivation is needed to begin day. Kipa is the beginning, the seed, a starter.

Each piece requires constant iterations and a careful work that decants in more than 50 hours from the design and making process between designer Andrea Jose and local goldsmiths.
