GEORG JENSEN Vintage Sterling Raised Hematite Ring
Renowned Danish silversmith Georg Jensen was born in 1866. His training in metalsmithing and his education in the Fine Arts enabled him to develop a successful career based in beautiful jewelry and silver design. His signature Art Nouveau style grew increasingly popular, and Jensen became a world renowned artist. Although Jensen died in 1935, his pieces are still being created today using the same craftsmanship as when he was alive.
This vintage hematite ring from the 1960s is a wonderful example of Georg Jensen's craft! Made of sterling silver, the ring holds a hematite cabochon stone in a raised bezel setting. The hematite has a highly polished surface, giving the dark stone a wonderful shine with a semi-metallic appearance. The sterling setting is simple and smooth, and has several hallmarks on the underside and interior of the band. Stamped inside the shank is "925S," "DENMARK," and the official "Georg Jensen" signature hallmark. On the underside of the mounting is "123 B." This fabulous piece would make a great addition to any Jensen collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.75, but it could easily be resized up or down if desired. The hematite cabochon measures 3/4" by 3/8", and rests about 1/2" above the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting or hematite stone, which is intact and free of scratches.
