An amazing ring from Austria circa 1960 set with a lovely hand cut cabochon of amethyst.
This extraordinary ring is an original artisan piece made in the mid century era. The amethyst chosen to sit at the top of the almost architectural design is deliberately banded with eye visible natural inclusions. The color of the amethyst is quite dark and dramatic the most lovely contrast to the sterling silver setting.
This ring rises high off the finger and is chunky in design. The top of the ring sits 11/16" high off the hand and the diameter of the cluster is 11/16" (17mm, 18mm).
Inside the shank it is marked 925 and signed by the maker.
It has an adjustable shank so can be altered to most sizes with ease. Currently this piece is a size 5 3/4 US.
This is an amazing piece - so very sci fi in design and inspiration. Not surprisingly really as this piece was made around the time man made his first landing on the moon!
It is in great condition and is ready to gift or to wear. Please note viewed obliquely the amethyst cabochon does show where the natural internal inclusions reach the surface. This is not really a defect but a deliberate part of the design and I am mentioning it for accuracy and so much modern jewelry or jewelry made in this style in recent times to imitate earlier pieces is set with hydrothermal quartz which has no inclusions. This is an original era ring and the amethyst chosen is deliberately cut from an included stormy natural crystal- its natural amethyst with natural inclusions.
This amazing ring will be sent in a presentation box ready for gifting and for safe keeping.
The photographs do form part of the description of this rare piece.
