Modernist Silver Ring by E. Granit & Co. Finland. This is exactly what Erik Granit is known for, simplistic but stunning designs. This ring has three spheres, the center one is larger than the two side spheres and these are perched on a simple wide silver band weighing 2.6 grams. Size 5 3/4. The band is 1/4" wide at the top.
The ring has to distinct, clear marks inside the band. The company name, E. GRANIT & Co. DESIGN JEWELRY on one side and the opposite side of the band has 925 STERLING FINLAND, and the corresponding hallmarks for maker, National mark, Silver Purity, Town Mark and a date code of R-7 which is 1970. The very dark areas are just reflections of my camera or the ring sizer.
Excellent vintage condition with only slight surface marks from use and what you would expect on a vintage ring. I gave this a quick polish with a silver cloth and left the patina around the spheres.
Erik Granit (Finland (1930 - 1988) Erik Granit founded his jewelry and design shop in 1956 at the age of 26 in Helsinki. He focused on clean, simplistic, modern forms.
