This wonderful German Jugendstil Ring is true to the aesthetics of the period. With twisted ropes and coral colored enameling running in geometric lines, the details perfectly offset the squared domed shaped gems of Amazonite and Coral. This ring is attributed to Theodore Fahrner. Similar examples can be seen in the book, Theodor Fahrner Jewelry: Between Avantgarde and Tradition. The ring is 935 silver, the typical fineness for Fahrner Jewelry, and for Germany. The use of Coral and Amazonite is a common combination for Fahrner pieces of this era, and the shape of the gems as well as this particular color of matte coral enamel can be seen in many of his pieces from the early part of the 20th century. Fahrner exhibited at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900 where he won the Silver Medal for Jewelry.
Measurements: 25mm x 13.5mm at the top, 5.3mm at the shoulder, and 1.6mm at the back of the shank. The stones are 5.7mm.
Condition: The ring shows it's age, but in a good way. It is very wearable. There is an old chip to a corner of one of the Amazonites, it is visible under magnification. The ring likely lost its TF when it was sized at some point. There are traces of the 935 mark. There are scratches on the shank, they can likely be buffed off, I will leave this to the buyer.
Size: 8, It can be resized using a laser.
Era: circa 1915.
