Mid Century Modern Sterling and Jade Ring
The design of this ring is SO midcentury, SO modern and just SO cool! Handmade and hand signed on the back ( "VAS" ? ) it's most certainly the only one of its kind. It is sterling silver with a rectangular sugarloaf Nephrite Jade set asymmetrically atop an architectural stair-step design. Over the years it has acquired the perfect amount of patina along the right angle of each step. This highlights the geometry of the design and really enhances its three-dimensional quality. The shank is relatively plain with just a simple split shoulder on each side. The overall dimension of the rectangle is 16mm long by 12mm wide by 6mm high to the top of the jade. The shank is 5.5mm wide at the shoulders and 4mm at the base. Currently the ring is a size 5-3/4 and can be sized upon request.
