Handmade by a Karen tribal silversmith, this lovely ring is skillfully made of high quality silver. Inspired by fine basket weaving, it features a wide band of woven silver which is finished with an edge in plain silver. The modern design goes with everything from ethnic to contemporary looks. An opening on the lower side allows it to be adjustable. This would be a wonderful, stylish gift for that special lady.
Size: 0.75 in. inside x 0.85 in. wide
This short version of a ‘tower’ ring may have come from Yemen- it was found in a souk in Saudi Arabia over 25 years ago. The silver could be from the large Maria Theresa ‘thalers’ that were the coin of trade in the Middle East and around the world (83.3% silver). It is ornamented with twisted wire and flat disks, with a 7mm wide band. This unusual ring is a special find at a special price.
Size: 0.75 in / 19mm inside at widest part; tower is 15mm high overall
This old Bedouin ring is a handsome design and well made. It could be made of 90% silver, due to apparent oxidation. We’re not sure what kind of dark green stone is set into the top. It makes a statement and could be worn on any larger finger, or used as an unusual pendant. This is a nice example of its type and is in good condition.
Size: 0.75 in. / 2cm inside at widest point; tower 18mm high
Probably made in Yemen, this attractive ring includes granulation, gallery wire, twisted wire and filigree. The red ‘stone’ appears to be opaque glass and is decorated with granulation on top. Well made, it is in good condition and is very wearable. The silver quality is good- probably coin silver (+80%). It could be easily worn, or would make a nice addition to a collection.
Size: 0.75 in./19mm inside widest point; 17mm high
