Expressive vintage ring made of silver & pearls, Germany around 1970

In the post-war period, jewellery design was continuously and experimentally searching for new possibilities of expression. The aim was to create an independent abstract formal language that would stand out from the preceding historicizing styles and at the same time be recognizably contemporary and modern. Since then, the materiality of the pieces has often been in the foreground, the contrast, for example, between reflective and matt surfaces and the play of light and shadow. Today, these handcrafted creations are once again appreciated as vintage jewellery, as they convince through their independent design language. This expressive ring is made of solid silver and is a typical and particularly beautiful example of this period: the cast piece presents three cultured pearls on its front in a kind of moonscape of polished and patinated parts that organically form individual free forms. A wonderful jewel for the hand - a piece of wearable decorative art and great addition to any collection of modernist jewelry design.
