Another piece has emerged from undeserved obscurity!
We keep finding little gems from the past, as we tidy up and reorganize, and this is a beauty – and anonymous, without a mark to research the maker.
So, the style and workmanship are all the information we have. What do they tell us?
The style is intriguing, with the sterling silver forming a little feather-like flurry at the top, and the inlaid stones echoing the angular form of the shank.
Black onyx and luminous, white mother of pearl create a sharply graphic pattern that is both chic and timeless.
The design and shape of the ring are in close harmony, with smooth inlay work.
Handsome design and practiced workmanship, with traditional colors and symbols, used in a contemporary way.
This ring is, indeed, a gem. (And it can be sized up or down, as well.)
