Anita Ko has created a special gold phalanx bat ring for Wear LACMA. This ring, also known as a midi-ring, is designed for any finger and will sit between the first and second knuckle. The design was inspired by exquisite bat motifs from two Korean objects in LACMA's permanent collection: a reading table used by scholars and a delicate porcelain bottle. The symbol of the bat signifies good fortune and is also a play on words, a homophone, since the pronunciation for the Chinese character for bat 蝠 (bok) is the same as the pronunciation for the Chinese character for good fortune and happiness 福 (bok).
Anita Ko launched her fresh and modern jewelry collection in 2006. Her unique contemporary designs employ micro-pave diamonds, 18-karat gold, and vibrant semiprecious stones. Ko’s whimsical approach to design is evident in her use of geometric shapes and animals, and she finds inspiration for her pieces in her embrace of the Los Angeles lifestyle.
These one-of-a-kind items are sold at the LACMA Stores and NET-A-PORTER.COM with proceeds benefiting the museum. This project was created by LACMA’s Director’s Circle.
For most people, to determine the proper size ring, take your current ring size and subtract by 4.
