This stunning Theodor Fahrner ring is an example of his Art Deco filigree style produced in the 1920s and 1930s into WWII. Fahrner began work in Germany in 1855, creating jewelry of Art Nouveau or Jugendstil style. The designs were later inspired by the major European Art movement or Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Art Moderne.

The ring is beautiful, featuring a superb rectangular emerald cut spinel that changes color according to the light from blue-green to dark forest-green ~ sparkling and wonderful. As natural green spinel stones are very rare I would assume this to be a lab created stone. Synthetic spinel has been produced by the Verneuil process since about 1909. The setting has an easily recognisable Fahrner design in very lightly gilded sterling silver, using the finest corded wires and beading called the millegriff technique. This is used in an intricate swirled pattern framing the superb stone and carried onto the underside and shoulders of the ring. The effect is delicate and stunning at once ~ just wonderful.

Dimensions are : the gem-stone is 9/16 inch long x 3/8 across; the ring face is 3/4 inch long x 5/8 inch wide ; it stands just over 3/16 inch from the hand. Weight is 6.5 grams. Size is US 6.5 and easily re-sized. The stone has flawless clarity to the unaided eye with very slight facet blemish (visible in magnified image, but not the naked eye) and the setting is excellent with gentle wear to note to the band. The hallmarks are 925 in a cartouche ; TF (linked & circled)~ the mark TF in a circle was used from 1901.

This is an exceptional and very collectible Theodor Fahrner Art Deco ring showing his elegant craftsmanship - reminiscent of the 18th century. Theodor Fahrner designs are very sought after by collectors.
