Vintage Lapponia Diamond Beacon Ring
* * SOLD * *
A striking, vintage modernist ring, by the beloved design house Lapponia Finland, modeled in bloomed 18k yellow gold and accented with platinum. This ring features a small, sparkling brilliant cut diamond (E/F, VS). The diamond is set in a long, platinum tube bezel, so it reads like a beacon, beaming out over the organic forms beneath it. We see these soft, undulating forms as waves, but they might also be read more abstractly, as an embrace. The diamond could be a sun, or moon, rising atop a mountain in the distance, or it could be a searchlight, guiding onlookers away from danger. We love Lapponia's designs for their reflection of the natural world, and for their ability to inspire the imagination! This graceful example would make a lovely engagement ring! It stacks well with other slender bands.
This bears a full series of Finnish hallmarks. It is marked for Lapponia, and for the year 1989.
