A very good, large 18K yellow gold Sputnik ring by H Stern circa 1955. The legendary Brazilian jeweler established in Rio de Janeiro in 1945 has always been known for cutting edge modernist jewelry designed by well known Brazilian artists and designers such as Roberto Burle Marx who was resposible for the world famous mosaics on Copacabana and Ipanema beaches.
The dome is
studded with a variety of bezel-set tourmalines, amethysts, citrines,
aquamarines and garnets. Stern popularized the style in the 1950’s to
show off the variety of gemstones mined in the company’s native Brazil.
The rings were made in a variety of dome sizes, and this
example is exceptionally large. The inside of the shank is marked with
Stern’s hallmark and with 18K hallmarks, size 4 3/4.
