Who We Are
Where Art and Science Collide
THE RAYY combines contemporary design and cutting-edge innovation to craft poetry from light. Through the power of human ingenuity, this elemental force has been tamed: the immaterial becomes tangible, to encapsulate your inner visions. Whether set as a precious stone or sculpted in 18k gold, the surface of the jewel – referred to as a Mirror - conceals a message, to be hidden or revealed according to your mood and the will of the sun.
The story behind the solitaire
The solitaire diamond ring is fine jewelry’s answer to timeless beauty and design. Since ancient Roman times, a single diamond set within a golden band has been a treasured keepsake. In today's world, the everlasting gemstone evokes sentiments of eternal love and devotion. The Rayy reimagines the classic diamond solitaire design with a geometric, minimalist silhouette that begs to be worn in ways that reach beyond the traditional engagement ring.

Who We Are
It all started with sunlight on water. As a team of scientists watched luminous ripples dancing across the seabed, they began to wonder how their patterns could be harnessed and controlled. After 8 years of research, THE RAYY’s co-founders Romain Testuz and Yuliy Schwartzburg found the answer: a unique, patented algorithm that deploys advanced optical simulation and high-precision tools to bring hidden words and symbols to life.
