Verdura's fascination with birds can be traced back to his childhood home where an enormous birdcage filled the foyer. Decades later and a world away, the simplistic and utilitarian design from his childhood inspired him to create the first Caged Ring in aquamarine and rose gold, owned by Dorothy Paley Hirshon
Verdura replaced the exotic birds with mixed-cut gemstones that "sang" softly as they rattled against one another in their gilded cage. In 2005, Verdura reintroduced the Caged Ring and over the years it became a renewed icon of the house.
In 2018, Verdura adapted the design to create a lariat necklace, cuff and pendant earclips
