Deodat Kleist 1960s German 835 silver and amber Ring

on Feb 18, 2020 in Rings/earrings, US/European

Handmade in the 1960s this ring crafted in 835 silver follows the Arts and Crafts tradition in its chased, textured and oxidized silver-work and the choice of amber as its “stone”. Active in the 1960s and 1970s in Germany, Deodat is the first of the two Kleists known for their jewelry, the second being his son, Helmut, who started work in 1965. Beautifully made, carefully finished, the ring evokes the craftsmanship of earlier ages yet looks very much at home on our modern fingers…
