DRAMATIC Sterling Silver Brutalist style RING was crafted in Sheffield, England in 1976. It is Fully Hallmarked however; they're not as crisp as I would like to confirm 100% it was made in Sheffield. It does have the "B" Date letter for 1976. Unfortunately I was unable to identify the silversmith (JM) who created it.
English ~ British silver jewelry has a Bold, Sculptural, FLAME-like modernist design... you would almost think it might be from Israel if it weren't hallmarked. BRUTALIST accessory is well crafted (the interior is polished smooth for comfort) as are the ends of almost all of the 'flames'. Presently MEASURES a Size 6 3/4 and could easily be re-sized by a silversmith/bench jeweler without disturbing the hallmarks. WEIGHS 10 Grams (~ 1/3 Troy OZ) and Front is 1 1/4 Inches N-S.
EYE Catching example of 1970's Brutalist period (which derives from the French word brut, meaning “raw”) jewelry is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! Has recently been cleaned/polished - it was completely black with tarnish when I found it. I would say there are virtually no signs of wear/use. UNIQUE piece would make a TERRIFIC Gift or Addition to your Sterling Silver Ring, Wearable Art ~ Sculpture, Scandinavian Modernist, Brutalist or Signed Silver Jewelry Collection! Could be worn by a man or woman - teenager or adult.
