This is a special ring in the Bridges of Amsterdam Collection in many ways.
It is inspired by one of the 8 remaining wooden draw bridges in Amsterdam and located close to the most famous draw bridge over the Amstel River, the Skinny Bridge. The wooden slats of the bridge are visualized by the invisibly set baguette cut diamonds ‘crossing’ the bridge. The lights on the bridge cannot be missed and are the twinkling brilliant cut diamonds.
The impressive center diamond symbolizes the spirit of the incredible person the bridge was named after, Walter Suskind.
Suskind was a German Jew who helped about 600 jewish children escape the Holocaust. He was a member of the Jewish Council of Amsterdam (Joodsche Raad) during the Second World War and the manager of the Hollandsche Schouwburg (Dutch Theater), where the Jewish inhabitants of Amsterdam had to report themselves prior to their deportation to the Westerbork transit camp. In his position he was able to manipulate the personal data of children, remove them from the register and bring them to safety.
