Fabulous Iconic 1960's Modernist Design to this stylish 9ct Gold Ring set with elegant Wine Red Marquise cut Garnets. The design of this beautiful ring is typical of the creativity around in London in the swinging 1960's that was inspired by the master modernist jewellers of the time such as Andrew Grima and John Donald. The organic abstract design of this ring is definitely an homage to the work of these jewellers and is wonderfully stylish in its own right. Perhaps originally designed as a Wedding or Anniversary band it works equally wonderfully as a dress ring.The deep blood Red Garnets contrast intensely against the rich buttery yellow gold. Garnets have long been associated with love and romance and in the Victorian Language of gemstones they symbolised True Love and faithfulness. If you were looking for a wedding ring with a difference this would be a fabulous choice. The ring is fully hallmarked by the London Assay Office for 9ct 9k 375 gold with the date letter for the year 1967. It is stamped with makers mark'CJLtd'. I have been unable to attribute the designer. The Organic Brutalist style also harks towards the Scandinavian and Finnish Jewellery of the 1960's era. The ring is set with 5 Marquise Shaped Garnets at the front of the ring. The textured design continues all the way around the band. The ring is a good solid weight at approximately 5.5 gms.
