This is a sweet vintage 1970s silver hallmarked ring. It was made for Caithness Glass - and has a sweet little millefiori glass gem as an embellishment. The tiny paperweight is in faint hazy glass - with subtle colours of lilac and purple.
The ring comes with its original vintage Caithness Glass presentation box (rare to find boxed) - as photographed.
It is designed for a medium-large finger - and it is measured at a UK ring size R, as photographed.
The silver hoop of the ring is quite Brutalist in design. With a thicker silver hoop incised with little flecks. The ring is interestingly hallmarked for Birmingham (instead of Edinburgh) and with the date letter A for 1975.
As a fine piece of Scottish jewellery - it looks very stylish when worn - this Caithness Jewellery boxed rings are now hard to find.
As you can see from my images - it is nice and clean. It is listed at a fair price given it comes with its RARE original box. It would look nice with my Caithness Glass pendant also listed in my shop. Postage would be capped for multiple buys at £4.95.
Have taken lots of images for your inspection which should give you a good idea of how these look.
These pieces of silver jewellery were initially Paul Ysart’s idea. He had been making small ‘stones’ and setting them into cheap jewel fittings as presents for friends and family.
Caithness Glass saw the commercial potential in them and put Colin Terris in charge of further development. The range was officially launched in December 1970. Colin Terris designed a range of brooches and pendants inspired by traditional Scottish designs and hired Lucia Polanski as jewellery designer; she produced the rings, earrings, and cufflinks designs.
