Contemporary neo-tribal ring from Rajasthan
A sample ring developed for one of our clients in the early days of Lai, this part-tribal, part-modernist ring is an absolute stunner to wear. Since this is an original sample, you can still see chisel and chasing marks on the ring- the wonderful marks of the maker. The silver bead in the cavity in the center is a solid ball and gives this ring a wonderful heft. Lightly oxidized to bring out the wirework detailing as well as the 3-dimensionality of the design.
Composition: Sterling silver.
Measurements: Face of the ring: 2.8 cm diameter
Ring size: US ring size 7 (inner diameter 1.75 cm). Medium size.
Country of origin: Jaipur, India
Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than the actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
