JANE WIBERG Mid Century Danish Sterling & Tiger's Eye Modernist Ring
This unusual signed ring by Mid Century Danish jeweler Jane Wiberg is a wonderful example of the Modernist movement! Crafted in sterling silver, this innovative and creative ring is a vintage piece likely from the 1960s-1970s. The ring's minimalist design is simple, but quite substantial in size and appearance. A large tiger's eye cabochon stone forms the striking centerpiece, contained within a bezel setting. The tiger's eye stone has wonderful iridescent properties, flashing in the light with strong shades of deep brown, caramel, and gold. The back of the design is quite unique: three individual bands are attached to the centerpiece on either side. Stamped inside the ring is a maker's hallmark, which reads "JANE WIBERG STERLING 526." A very fun and funky ring, it has with a bold and impressive look, and is a must-have for any modernist jewelry collector!
Measurements: The ring has an approximate finger size 7, and due to the unique design of the band, re-sizing is not recommended. The tiger's eye centerpiece measures 1" tall, 3/4" wide, and rests approximately 1/2" above the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting or tiger's eye stone, which is intact and securely set. There is a natural patina on the surface of the silver that gives it a slightly darkened appearance, which is normal for a vintage piece, but could be polished for a brighter look if desired.
