Sleek "mod" sterling silver ring by Spanish designer Joachim S’Paliu. Joachim S. Paliu is from Cordoba Spain and is known as a Spanish Modernist. As a jewelry designer, he distinguished himself with great modernist designs and quality finishes. His pieces are not that easy to find so I am always happy when I come across one of his items, especially from that era. The ring is minimalist and clean looking but makes an impression on the finger. Ring size is between 6 3/4 and 7 (US sizing). Item is in vintage condition but surface scratches from loving wear and age are visible, especially under magnification. This piece is a vintage piece dating back to the 1960's or 70's. Marked Sterling Silver, S'Paliu and Spain on the outside of the band. The piece is in unpolished condition as found. I prefer not to remove any patina. One could bring it back to an almost pristine condition if taken to a jewelers for buffing and polishing if desired. Joachim S. Paliu of Cordoba Spain is known as a Spanish Modernist. As a jewelry designer, he distinguished himself with great modernist designs and quality finishes. It is difficult for collectors to find vintage silver jewelry from Spain and from S'Paliu. A great piece to add to a modernist collection!
