is shaped by the uniqueness and duplicity of the element it is named after and with the concept carrying the chemical name for carbon in the periodic table. The C6 is based on usage of pure carbon atoms materialized in multiple forms, with the jewelry composed of carbon in two completely different appearances – namely graphite and diamond. Combining science and aesthetics, the C6 design concept brings the diamond back into a beautiful cradle of its natural element. With its stringent and minimalistic design it is authentic, contemporary and timeless. C6 being both modern and classic is an innovative renewal of the traditional diamond ring.

The element C6 is the basis for our living world. It is found deep inside our planet, in living creatures, in the air that we breathe, and throughout the universe. Without C6 there would be no life.
Created by Supernovas stardust C6 was spread into the universe and formed the planets and life on earth. Graphite and diamonds – the two materials constituting the C6 concept – are allotropes of carbon, pure forms of the same element that differ in structure.
The C6 jewelry boxes is handmade by the danish ceramic artist Helle Bovbjerg. Inspired by the industriel containers it brings the C6 jewelry back to the ocean and in to the world with an unique piece of art and handcraft. Please feel free to explore her work and art at:hellebovbjerg.dk

The C6 design concept is based on the philosophy of C6 as a symbol of life. Black as coal and clear as light itself. This duplicity and the elements’ duality embody the magic of the elemental cornerstone, C6 of the living world. The design also plays with time, space and being. An evolution from supernova explosions to modern technology. An existential state of mind by the simplicity of C6 and yet complex.
It all started with a passion for the ocean. Seeking simplicity in life Danish Anne Cohen went out sailing and crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice – the Southern route in 1993, and later the Northern route in 1997 on a 60-feet Vendé Globe racing boat.
The actual construction of the 60-feet Vendé Globe racing boat was where Anne Cohen became familiar with carbon fiber. During the work with the creation of the racing boat she learned about composite materials both in mind and doing.
With a passion for design and material Anne Cohen fell in love with the carbon element being the most simple and yet complex atom, and with its large spectrum of materializations making carbon appear in multiple forms. The dream of making a carbon ring based on pure carbon atoms was born. With graphite fiber and diamonds she could tell her story of life.
Every piece is carefully crafted by hand and is a long process from raw fiber to the final ring. All settings are placed directly in to the carbon fiber without any additional materials, which gives a unique ring that consists only of pure carbon atoms.
To bring out the design concept the handcraft is the key role to fulfill the materialization of the C6 uniqueness. At the Copenhagen Jewellery Fair 2010 Anne Cohen was awarded with the 1st prize for innovative design and use of materials.

“To me the C6 ring truly reflects the duplicity in life and in living – while being a concept of both power and poetry the C6 at the same time radiates verve and vulnerability. Being a Danish design – contemporary, simple and elegant – there is no doubt that Anne Cohen with the C6 has created a unique design that has the potential to reach out to an international audience with its powerful and precise expression appealing to both men and women. I see Anne Cohen’s C6 design as an elegant vanguard of jewelry design and innovation.”
“Det kræver mod at have talent og mod og talent er essensen af C6 for mig. Det kræver mod at udfordre de konventionelle materialer og det fordrer talent at gøre det så fuldendt og æstetisk som Anne Cohen har gjort det. C6 er for mig noget af det mest geniale og nytænkende på en ellers meget traditionel scene i mange mange år.”
“Det er lykkedes dig at forny diamantringen. Og når jeg ser på det her – er det hele universet samlet i ét. Det er et koncept der er kommet for at blive. ”
