Question regarding Antique Diamond Wedding Set Old Mine Cut 14K Gold

Q: why are you selling a picture listed under wedding rings. Why not under art. This is misleading. Especially if someone doesn't read every word on your description. Why mention the size of the ring and other characteristics.

A: This is part of a larger art project. The listing is in fact listed under art as well as wedding rings. One reason being, that the project is intended to be exhibited outside of an art context. Additionally, by blurring the lines between the object and the image it questions the role of photography in our culture as well as consumerism. Even with that said, I do endeavor to be quite explicit in stating that the auction is for a photograph and not, in this case, a wedding set. I appreciate your concern and apologize for any confusion this may have caused. If you would like to learn more about the project please visit, erikdalzen.com
