fir cone ring

this spring and summer i really got into rings as accessoires - having to wear a uniform almost every day led to the necessity of finding different ways to express my personal style at work without the free choice of which garments to wear. so i started a little collection, and one of the latest additions is this vintage ring which i got through little things vintage on etsy.













































it seems to be inspired by a fir cone, which is wonderful in combination with my acorn-necklace. also, there is lots of information to be found in the hallmarks of the ring:

























the ring was designed by erik granit, a finish designer who was working mainly during the 1950s-70s. this particular ring was made in 1967 (hallmarked O7) and was made in helsinki (as confirmed the little boat) in finland (a crown in a heart). now i just wonder who owned the ring before me and how it made its journey to a seller in the usa...

Spännande med vintage och secondhand sakers historia, det gör kläderna så mycket mera värdefulla!
