The 1960s broke new ground in jewellery design. The newfound prosperity of the post-war period expanded the clientele of jewelers and allowed broad strata of society to purchase precious pieces. At the same time, however, the overly obvious display of opulent pieces fell out of fashion. Thus two types of jewellery developed: Gem-studded jewels of a more classical design, intended for formal evening events or for the vault alone - and jewellery that was worn on an everyday basis and for pleasure only. The latter were often characterized by less costly materials, but all the more daring designs that followed the latest fashion trends. The self-confident woman now increasingly bought not only her own clothes and accessories, but also the jewellery to match. The interest here was now unusual textures and vibrant colours. The present ring is an exemplary representative of this jewellery genre and shows itself in an unusual form: The starting point of the creation is a piece of glass banded in purple, reminiscent of an amethyst specimen or a mountain landscape. The irregularly shaped glass is held by a high base of gold. Lively surface designs reminiscent of nets, tree bark and reptile scales show the desire to experiment with forms. The result is such a statement piece that beautifully illustrates this era's zest for life and penchant for striking design. It found its way to us here in Baden.
