About the Item

A rare ring designed by Ed Wiener (1918-1991). Beautiful modernist unique art-piece, created in New York city back in the 1970's by the artist- goldsmith Ed Wiener. This sculptural one-of-a-kind ring was crafted in solid rich yellow gold of 18 karats, with hammered and textured finish. Mounted in the center in a bezel setting, with a sugarloaf cabochon cut (10.3 x 10.2 x 11.5 mm) of a natural Brazilian vivid purple amethyst of 7.45 carats. Has a total weight of 15.5 grams and the actual size is 6, sizeable. The top view measurements are 20 mm by 20 mm (0.79 x 0.79 Inch) and raise 12 mm over the finger. Stamped, with the Ed Wiener maker's mark, the hallmark for the assay of the gold and signed, "ED WIENER .750". Ed Wiener (1918-1991), began his career in the artist's circles of the post-Bauhaus. Was very active at Provincetown and the Greenwich village in New York. Work immediately in the early days of the abstract expressionist movement of the post-war period, late 1940's. His most famous customers was the sculptor Louise Nevelson and Martha Graham, the dancer. He worked extensively in sterling silver until the beginning of the 1950 when he made a lot of sculptural pieces of jewelry in gold with precious gemstones. He has his retail store and goldsmith atelier in New York, located in 53th street & 5th avenue. His gold pieces are one-of-a-kind, using the lost wax method and then finished with hammered patterns. This is an amazing and rare collector's piece in great vintage condition, with gorgeous patina. INVENTORY REF: R0000MSTE/.3725
