This modernist ring is a silver and gold band with gold and black patterning. The underlying substrate is made of silver and a layer of gold with pierce-work covers the surface. The silver pattern is darkened with liver of sulphide to enhance the recessed design. In the center of the dark central band, there is a series of amorphic gold shapes soldered to the silver layer.
