1960s Roberto and Haroldo Burle Marx Forma Livre Carved Tourmaline and Gold Ring

$8,000Asking Price


A forma livre carved tourmaline and 18 karat gold ring, by Roberto and Haroldo Burle Marx, c. 1960. This ring is a size 5 and it is stamped Burle Marx, 750, IND BRAS, GB791. Roberto and Haroldo Burle Marx were Brazilian brothers who created exceptional jewels between the 1940s and 1980s, and developed a style of stone carving called "forma livre," or free form. Rather than faceting stones or polishing them into cabochons, each stone was carved into unique shapes, with Roberto's being more sculptural while Haroldo's are more classic modernist. Haroldo continued to make jewelry in the 1970s and 1980s while Roberto did not.
