Vintage 830 Silver Tiger Eye Ring, Modernist, Norway Silver, Sculptural, Wrapped, Chunky, Size 6 1/2, OOAK, Brutalist,Fab! #c163
For offer today, I have a superb vintage 830 silver and tiger eye modernist ring!
This ring is a mid-century modernist ring comprised of 830 silver. Because of the 830 silver purity, I believe it is of Norwegian origin. The ring features a very large, prong-set, oval tiger eye stone on the face that exhibits beautiful swirling bands of brown and black throughout. The stone sits up very high on the ring and is literally wrapped in a circle of roughly finished, somewhat brutalist silver bands with raw indentations and folds. The ring band is finished in a smooth silver. The ring creates a gorgeous contrast between the lovely polished stone and the bold, sculptural modernistic silver setting. It's truly marvelous!
The ring measures about a size 6 1/2 and weighs 11.1 grams. The ring face measures approximately 1 inch long and 5/8 inch wide. The tiger eye stone measures approximately 10mm by 18mm in size. The ring is hallmarked "830" on the inside of the band.
This exceptional ring is a true piece of modern art! It's a great piece for the modernist or brutalist jewelry collector or for anyone who appreciates bold silver jewelry! The ring is in excellent vintage condition. I gave it a light polish with a dry silver cleaning cloth to bring out the shine, but there is still some residual tarnish in areas. There is a very small area on the back of the ring band that is irregular (photo #2) and could be a faint mark. It's a marvelous, one-of-a-kind vintage find!
