Hans Hansen Denmark silver modernist Ring

on Sep 17, 2020 in Rings/earrings, US/European

Slick, absolutely minimalist, wrought in sterling silver this vintage “mirrored” ring bears the signature of Hans Hansen, one of Denmark’s most inspired modernist jewelry designers. There is nothing excessive here – the ring’s towering geometry rises above the finger in two triangular flat-topped pyramids facing each other. The glistening sterling surfaces make the void between the two more dramatic – a dark chasm within which the gaze is lost or a shady valley that invites exploration depending on the way the light hits it…
