It's also very unimaginative. I'd at least try to figure out how to encase a solid diamond core into a platinum ring so that the light refracts through little exposed diamond protrusions all the way around.

Um, you're missing the point which was to make a ring that is literally ONLY diamond.

It's likely synthetic, and probably took Ive 5 minutes to design while the jeweler figured out the actual facets.

Surprisingly, he "designed" a ring and didn't remove the finger hole. It could have been just a flat circle. Tech is wireless now. Rings could be "fingerless". Unapologetically simple. You read that in Ive's voice, didn't you? ;)

I believe jewelry is stupid. That ring can never be resized so it won't fit everybody. It's good only to store in a safe. Cutting it up into traditional shaped diamonds that would be easier to sell would be a waste.

Is it real diamond or man made? I didn't read the article. Not that it would make a difference to me.

If you want to invest in valuable rocks to store in a safe, buy gold.

Oh, I agree (well, except about gold) especially because the price for diamonds is purely artificial.

The diamond WILL be manmade. "WILL" because the base stone will be created for the buyer who's finger will be measured and then the stone will be carved partially by lasers to fit.

You are right that basically this item will be unsellable except MAYBE for curiosity value. Only if a new buyer happens to have a finger of the same size or a bit smaller, it also will be unwearable. Maybe a subsequent buyer could strung it on a necklace if he/she wanted to display it, though personally I would view this ring basically as a sign saying "I'm with stupid".
