Fahrner jewellery from Pforzheim occupies a special place in the history of Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery. For Theodor Fahrner and later his successor Gustav Braendle knew better than almost any other modern jewellery manufacturer how to make artistically convincing designs and quality workmanship the hallmark of their brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Theodor Fahrner made artists' jewellery affordable by combining modern forms with democratic materials. He did not create individual pieces for a small elite like Lalique or Cartier, but 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 Jewelry - based on designs by the best artists" allowed every woman to participate in a modern life full of beauty. Every year, traveling salesmen with large sample cases presented the new products developed in Pforzheim to local retailers. One such sample case had lain untouched in an attic for the last 40-plus years until it was offered to us for sale. It contained samples of most of the series from about 1919 until the dissolution of the company in 1979, mostly marked with a model number or the "Original Fahrner" seal. The piece of jewellery presented here comes from this case. It is therefore unworn and perfectly preserved. The large oval ring head is made of lightly gilded silver and presents a shell cameo in its center. The oval cameo shows a young lady in profile. Fine cord piercings frame the beauty and give the ring a playful look. A simple gold ring band completes the piece of jewellery made in the years around 1955. Fahrner jewellery is often collected.
