Hans Appenzeller 14 Karat Gold Dutch Postmodern Sculptural Ring



Postmodernist 14K gold sculptural ring created by Hans Appenzeller of Amsterdam, circa 2000. Ring is a finger size 7.75 - 8 and is signed with the 585 hallmark for gold content. In very good vintage condition. 34.1 grams. After his training at the Rietveld Academy in 1949, Appenzeller opened his first Dutch jewelry gallery in 1969, together with Lous Martin named Galerie Sieraad in Amsterdam. Besides his own work, there was jewelry from twenty Dutch designers that he organized exhibitions of including Art Deco jewelry. In the turbulent sixties, Galerie Sieraad always shows the latest developments with changing exhibitions in addition to the permanent collection. Appenzeller makes jewelry from aluminum and rubber and always with the utmost wearability. He created the clap bracelet in which the flexibility of the wrist ensures the closure of the bracelet. In 1974 Appenzeller opens his own shop. He continues to emphasize the applicability of his jewelry. With 'catwalk shows', but also with an exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum, together with clothing designer Jan Aarntzen. In 1975 the shop moves to the Grimburgwal in the heart of Amsterdam. Hans moved to New York in 1983 and opened stores on Madison Avenue and West Broadway in Soho. He returned to Amsterdam in 1991. The store is located in a beautiful building from 1932 by the Dutch architect van Kempen. The shop interior was designed by Wim de Vos.
