Is that a football on your finger? Is that a walnut you're wearing? You may get an odd response to this odd ring but those who appreciate great Modernist design will recognize true Scandinavian Art when they see it.

This bronze ring was made by Pentti Sarpaneva (1925-1978), a Finnish jewelry designer. He worked primarily in silver and bronze and his designs were said to be influenced by memories of his shamanistic, blacksmith grandfather and the landscape of his native Finland. His designs have textures which evoke molten metal, melting icicles, volcanic lava and tree bark. His bold modern designs were produced by the highly regarded firms of Turun Hopea and Kalevala Koru.

This bronze ring is what it is...a shape that looks different from different angles. Oval from one side. Round from another. The top measures 1 inch across by 3/4 inch high from the adjustable band. The inside is signed P. SARPANEVA.

The bronze has evolved to a beautiful aged patina with some verdigris inside. The ring is in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1970.

When they ask you "What is it?", just smile knowingly and say "It's Sarpaneva".
