This ring is absolutely mesmerizing. It draws you in like a whirlpool -- no surprise, since that's the shape of it. You could also think of its dramatic design as a vortex, a whorl or a gyre (or, to be whimsical, a pinwheel). Whatever you call it, it's certain to command attention.
When this beauty crossed my path, it wasn't just tarnished; it was soot-black! Normally I leave things as found, in deference to the purists among us, or polish them only lightly, but a deep cleaning was required here. Exposing the silver exposed a sterling mark (925). We didn't find a maker mark, but the ring does appear to be hand-crafted.
Provenance is an East Coast collection of mid-century treasures and current size is about a US 6.5, easily altered since the shank is plain.
