Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewelry affordable because he combined modern forms with democratic materials. He did not create individual pieces for a small elite, as was the case with Lalique or Cartier. Instead, the designs were mass-produced in silver, decorated with enamel, marcasites, and occasionally precious stones. Jewelers and department stores throughout Europe sold the jewellery, which Fahrner advertised extensively in journals and magazines: "Fahrner jewellery - based on designs by the best artists" allowed every woman to participate in a modern life full of beauty. Salesmen with large sample cases presented the novelties developed at Fahrner to local jewelers. One such sample case full of unworn Fahrner jewelry had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40 years or more until it was offered to us. It contained samples of almost every series from about 1919 until the company's dissolution in 1979, most with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The ring here from this collection is therefore unworn and in perfect condition. The ring is made of sterling silver and features a milky green agate in an oval facet cut in the center. Metallic glittering marcasite roses accompany the colored stone. Elegantly, the design swings out to the sides and gives the ring a beautiful plasticity. A wonderful overview of the wealth of designs is offered in the catalog "Theodor Fahrner. Jewellery between avant-garde and tradition", edited by Brigitte Leonhardt and Dieter Zühlsdorff, Stuttgart 2005. Discover all the other pieces of Fahrner jewelry we offer at this site.

The citrine, agate, jasper, amethyst and onyx - for the chemist all these gemstones are quite uniform quartz. However, they are clearly distinguished by their color. The color spectrum of the citrine begins with the most delicate champagne tones, shows up now and then honey-colored and extends to a rich tone like sweet Madeira wine.
