Adorable Swoboda Turquoise & Onyx Bee Ring
Edward Swoboda started the Swoboda company in 1956 and was one of the few costume jewelers of the time to use semi precious stones in costume settings. Nate Waxman joined the Swoboda company in 1957 and was a pivotal force in making the company one of the "legendary" costume jewelry firms of the 20th century. Nate worked with designs, castings, plating, and mold making, but it was this knowledge coupled with his business know how that landed him business partner in the 1960's. The company maintained 3 permanent showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas, and retailed through the finest of stores including Neiman Marcus, Harrod's of London, Gump's, Marshall Fields, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Lush Life Antiques is pleased to offer select pieces from Mr Waxman's personal vintage collection as well as select reissues.

This unbelievably sweet bee ring measures 1 3/4" long x 1 1/8" wide and is made from 22k gold plated metal. The body is comprised of polished turquoise stone accents, while the wings are intricately set with genuine faceted onyx, with two ruby eyes. It has an adjustable shank and will fit most average ring sizes. The underside has the Swoboda hallmark and is in excellent unworn condition.
