I am an unabashed enthusiast of Viking Craft jewelry, and am very pleased to present this rare sterling silver ring. Albert Horwig founded this company in the 1930’s in New York City, and admired the organic naturalistic style originating in Denmark with Georg Jensen. Combining Art Nouveau’s flowing style with his own sensibilities, Horwig created a line of jewelry that continues to intrigue and delight collectors. Though this particular piece is in Horwig’s popular calla lily motif, Viking Craft rings, in particular, seem to be scarce, if not rare.

This striking vintage ring is very sculptural, and exhibits a beautifully balanced design. The fluid shape of a calla lily is juxtaposed by its leaf, and bisected with a sinuous line of graduated silver balls. The shoulders of the ring have a similar arrangement of smaller lilies, leaves, and balls. It is marked “Viking Craft Sterling,” and is in excellent condition with a patina that only time creates. The calla lily has been recognized as a powerful symbol of purity and magnificence throughout time, and remains a popular emblem of long lasting beauty. It would make an exceptional wedding band.
