Vintage sterling silver, onyx and lapis lazuli modernist ring.
Made circa 1960's.
US size 6.
Approx 29mm / 1 1/8th inch from top to bottom and 23 mm accross the top.
Weighs 7 grams.
Exceptional design: a U-shaped band of silver containing a core of onyx, with slight mottling that looks like natural shell, highly polished.
Stetched above this, a long tube-shape carved from beautiful blue lapis lazuli, ending in silver coletts that are also the terminals of the outer silver band.
The look is the epitomy of elegance and sophistication in a subtle modern sculpture.
The previous owner of the ring insisted that it was made in France, but the hallmark is 925 for the Sterling standard.
The maker's mark appears to be SOM with a dot and a little 'tail' on the O, in an oval cartouche.
No damage of any sort found.
NO registration required!
