18ct Yellow Gold Mid 20th Century 'Sputnik' Ring by H Stern Circa 1950’s
Encapsulating an era this exotic ring by H Stern was designed when Stern was commissioned to showcase the vast array of gems available in Brazil, and what better way than a large ‘bombe’ ring!
During the space race this iconic rings began to be know as ’Sputnik’ rings after their resemblance to the 1957 Soviet launched satellite of the same name.
Crafted from 18ct yellow gold and featuring nineteen round brilliant cut gems in rub over settings - Amethyst, Garnet, Tourmaline, Topaz, Citrine and Peridot - in a splendid ‘bombe’ style which just exudes the Retro era.
With an arched open gallery with small scroll detailing curved to hug the finger and a slim flat shank this not too heavy ring looks incredible and feels effortlessly comfortable on the finger.
Be the talk of the Christmas dinner table (and parties!) with this rare and striking ring, Retro jewellery is so very popular right now!
