Handmade sterling silver ring made by a Hungarian silversmith
This jewelry was made as it was in the old times, how even ancient, now extinct cultures made the jewelry. The material, its processing, the art of forging, was available for our ancestors as well.
Even its color is like as if it was dropped here from some romantic era/place!
The design of the ring is as if you have grabbed a silver band and loosely coiled it around your finger. In reality to achieve this wispy and spontaneous effect, the silver had to be forged. Where the ends of the strip close the ring, a tiny stud holds them together.
This small stud, just like a stone, is also a decoration on the ring. For this ring that was also made of silver, it's polished a little shinier then the rest of the ring, and on the head the trace of the hammer hits can be seen nicely, which generates tiny shining surfaces on the top of the stud.
The silver band, which the ring started out from in the past, at one of its ends becomes narrow, and ends in a spiral on the upper side of the hand, which makes the jewelry feminine. This visible structure gives the ring its dynamic look.
The metal became „wrinkled” on the side where the palm is, like a silk ribbon would wrinkle by the bending of your fingers!
This is why it is so comfortable (even if it was made of massive metal), like a good long standing, comfortable shoe.
Unique, handcrafted sterling silver ring made by a Hungarian silversmith. He heats it to a high temperature so it softens but don't think it will be soft like dough! He will still need hammer and hand tools to bend them to there beautiful tendril pattern shapes!
The size is adjustable, approximately between 53-56.
The ring has an unusual non-figurative tendril pattern which makes it an individual piece.
