Exceptional Large Vintage Modernist Sterling Stone Ring, Hans Hansen Denmark:
Pictured below is an exceptional vintage modernist ring in sterling silver and sodalite (I believe) designed for Hans Hansen Silversmithy, Kolding, Denmark, circa '60s. The ring features a geometric, sculptural mod design, with a large, angled, square cut loaf of sodalite in a big, thick frame of sterling silver; this is raised off the wide, plain, flat band with a thick, cylindrical rod. The stone is a lovely inky dark blue color, with veins of white running throughout.This is a sizeable, very substantial and weighty ring; the quality and craftsmanship are absolutely excellent. It's a terrific ring, with big, bold scale, clean geometric modern lines, and huge presence on the hand.
Measurements: The top of the ring measures about 7/8" per side of the square frame. The big rise off the band is about 5/8". The ring is about a US size 5 1/2..
Condition: The ring is in very good used vintage condition, with just light surface signs of age and wear, a small area of scratches on the sterling at the bottom of the band, some darkened patina, but no detractors.
Marks: The ring is signed on the interior of the band with impressed marks, 'HaH, 925S, DENMARK.'
