Shy and David Dayan’s “Manno Line”

A show-stopping men’s ring – bold and decidedly masculine. Designers Shy and David Dayan’s work has been getting some serious notice. And for good reason.

4. Shy Creation’s Manno Line

Designer Shy Dayan aimed to create a ring that his brother and business partner, co-owner David Dayan, would wear. The result: a 14k yellow gold ring with colorless and champagne diamonds in a squared-off, European-shank style with a gallery and black rhodium behind the brown stones “to make them pop,” says David, the 22-year-old firm’s toughest critic. The piece, the colors of which accented his Daytona Rolex watch, received so many compliments that the siblings turned the design into the Manno line.
