EVA ARMRING & Eva potatis ring
EVA blad örhänge krok & Eva L halsband
We are incredibly proud that Guldviva’s ring, Eva, has won the Finland’s Most Beautiful Ring award! The ring is adorned with a versatile plant which has a low impact on the climate. It has satisfied the hunger and calmed the minds of many—something so simple and so natural as the potato, its leaves and the alcohol made from potatoes.
With our collection, we wish to pay tribute to Eva Ekeblad and her historical discovery. Like the ring, the collection has a classic romantic style and comprises eight different pieces of jewellery made of 925 sterling silver, potatoes and their beautiful leaves as its paragon. Two necklaces in the collection are adorned with cubic-like zirconia as an alternative to a diamond, symbolizing the alcohol in Eva’s discovery.
What potatoes? What alcohol? And who is Eva Ekeblad? After our Eva ring
won the award for Finland’s Most Beautiful Ring in 2022, many people have
asked us where we got the inspiration from. It is a magnificent story of a
strong woman and her passion that let to something very unexpected. To find
out more, we sought the help of a real expert!
Portrait of Eva Ekeblad, oil on board by Olof Arenius, 18th century; in the collection of the Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki.
Eva Ekeblad (née de la Gardie) was a magnificent and influential woman of science who discovered a method to make alcohol and flour from potato in Sweden in the mid-1700s. Her discovery of how to make alcohol from potatoes saved countless people from hunger and starvation. All of the grain that the farmers grew was no longer needed to make alcohol -there was more grain left over to feed families.
A new chapter opened for the farmers, a new way to avoid starvation and a new invention that made Ekeblad the first female member of Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
With our ring, we wish to pay tribute to Eva Ekeblad and her historical discovery. The ring has a classic traditional style with a motif of potatoes and their beautiful leaves. It is made of 18-carat gold with a diamond.
Guldviva’s ring Eva with Maria Karlström at the helm wins the Most Beautiful Ring of the Year 2022 competition in Finland.
The jury has chosen 10 finalists from around 70 rings. The contest is organized annually by the Häät (Wedding) and I love me fair. The winner will be announced at the wedding professionals’ gala in Helsinki on 12 November 2022.
