Bohemia at Lake Balaton

Gorgeous vintage silver ring with bohemian garnets, Hungary around 1970

This ring sets five Bohemian garnets in unusual faceted cuts in solid silver. In the center of the ring head we see a garnet in a carré cut, accompanied by a drop in each of the four corners. With its historical appearance, the ring posed a bit of a riddle for us, as this magnificent piece of jewellery is reminiscent of the artistic creations of Historicism at the end of the 19th century, as they were created in the multi-ethnic state of Austria-Hungary. But a small hallmark in the ring's band reveals that the ring must have been created in the years after 1967. Its home country is indeed Hungary, and so the beautiful ring is in the tradition of the goldsmith's work of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Ideal with traditional costume, the ring is just waiting to be taken out and worn again.
