Vintage Georg Jensen Amethyst Ring 18k Gold

Georg Jensen was born in Raadvad, Denmark, in 1866. His dream was to be a sculptor, he succeeded at this a little in the beginning as it allowed him entrance into the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. While attending school he earned grants due to his goldsmith skills and sculptural talents. After graduating in 1892 he still sought his dream of being a sculptor but after traveling the world and witnessing the ideas of Art Nouveau, he decided to give the idea of making beautiful yet functional things a try.

In 1904, he took a risk, as he had no money, and two kids, and opened his own silversmith shop in Copenhagen. As time went on his work traveled the world in various exhibits and by 1935 he had stores throughout the entire world.

This Mid-Century Modern amethyst gold ring was handcrafted in Denmark, after 1945. It was designed by the Georg Jensen Company in his signature style. This 18 karat gold ring features a round cabochon cut bezel set amethyst that measures 9 mm in diameter. The ring face measures 12.7 x 10.3 x 7.6 mm off the finger and the band width measures 4.7 mm at the back. This size 7.5 ring weighs 9.3 grams. It has been fully hallmarked. It bears the gold purity marks, “750” and “18 K”, and a style mark, “1124”. It also bears the name, “GEORG JENSEN” inside an oval dotted cartouche. There is a London import mark, shaped like the letter, “U”, next to the gold purity marks, “750”, “18”, and the letter, “n”.
