”Together We Stand” interprets the stages and intricacies of a relationship. It deals with the very beautiful and optimistic, shiny and dream-like beginning, followed by a crisis moment which can make one feels that they've been ''hit by a train'', and ending full-circle with a balanced, peaceful, personalized stage which comes as a result of work invested by both partners in saving the relationship.
We are never ready for what will happen in the long road of a marriage or committed relationship, but if we manage to survive through the crises and challenges, we can reach a point where we build our own normality and balance. The result is a “we” way more beautiful, special and personal yet imperfect ( stage 3) than the “we” imposed by society (described in the first stage).
To build this collection, I have used 6 classic gold engagement rings to portray in a very blunt, straight-forward way these stages.
For the second stage, the wedding rings were flattened after being laid on a railroad and ran over by a moving train. The symbolism behind this act suggests the strength of the very possible emotional shock that occurred within a crisis in a relationship.
