Sofia Wood often wonders who wore her Eternal flame before her.
When Sofia Wood is not dreaming, cooking and getting inspired by food, she is working as Head of Product Presentation and Communication at Filippa K. Her role involves, among other things, being responsible for how the brand presents its products, whatever channel. Sofia’s side project, the food blog Chez Wood, is an inspiring site to visit when looking for easy, mainly vegetarian dishes to make in everyday life. We ask Sofia about her Eternal Flame – a piece that she bought without hesitation.
Tell us about your Eternal Flame!
– My wedding ring is a french Art Déco ring dating back to the mid 1920’s. It has a fine platinum band with a black onyx setting cupping two larger diamonds and milligrain detailing encrusted with tiny diamonds on each side. I love how there is so much symbolism in the form, the octagon onyx setting makes up a number eight shape, a symbol of eternity and the use of two stones symbolize partnership. I often wonder who wore it before me, who she was and what her life was like, nearly 100 years ago.
– When I studied art history I fell head over heels in love with the Art Déco period. Everything from the architecture, interior design to jewellery appeals greatly to me and how it’s graphic yet delicate at the same time. I unexpectedly came across my ring at an antique jewellery dealer when accompanying a friend who was contemplating a piece there and instantly knew it was “the one”. Mind you, I’m a person who bought four different wedding dresses so deciding on (and sticking to..) something this quickly was a pretty good achievement for my libra-personality!
