Vuoden Kaunein Sormus 2021
(Most beautiful ring of the year) competition
The theme for The Most Beautiful Ring in Finland 2022 competition was "A New Beginning". Petri manufactured the Tiima diamond ring that made it to the finals, by hand. Follow the link to vote for our ring!
This is the story behind the Tiima ring: The story in English When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2014 this became a turning point in my life. My condition rapidly deteriorated when treatment started. My last commissioned work before sick leave was a wedding ring for a young couple. This was embossed with an hour-glass which for them symbolized a new beginning and eternity. During chemotherapy I often looked at the drip bottle, the hour-glass. When the treatment was at its worst the Reaper was standing by my bedside reaching out his scraggy hand: clasp this and your pain will be gone. I clenched my fist under the bed cover and thought that soon it will be time to reverse the hour-glass, soon a new start is ahead!

Midsummer is one of our oldest celebrations, and is also a popular day for getting married. Since ancient times, people have honoured the summer solstice - the longest day and shortest night of the year - with ritual fires and flowers as a sign of rebirth and new life. In the Norse mythology, Freya is the goddess of love and fertility, and also the patroness of marriage.
The theme of the Most Beautiful Ring of the Year 2019 competition “From celebration to celebration” was really exciting. I wanted to create an engraved diamond ring that reflects both ancient traditions as well as modern time summer parties. The myths about the goddess of love and fertility have given me great inspiration to the golden Freya-ring. Its diamonds and decorative flower-engravings symbolize both old and new celebrations and traditions of Midsummer.
We now also have earrings and a necklace in our Freya collection, and there is more to come. The Freya jewellery is hand-made to shine and last through all kinds of celebrations, and is now one of the finalists in the competition Jewellery of the Year 2021!
