A striking modernist ring, with a highly structural form that also suggests a rolling movement. The ring face is composed of panels that curve to resemble something like a tank tread, and these panels are each set with a long, flat-cut carnelian gem. The split shank is open form, and it creates the illusion that this form was once flat, before the shank was pinched together as the handles of a handbag might be. Interesting and bold, this smarty-pants would be a wonderful addition to any collection of fine, modernist jewelry.
