Ed Wiener Citrine Gold Ring
United States (c1980)
A handsome gold and citrine ring by Ed Wiener. The 18k 1 1/2″ yellow gold, hammered finish, lozenge shaped ring with a pear-shaped collet set Madeira citrine. Ed Wiener, influenced by both modern art and jazz, found his expression in making sculptural jewels. Many pieces are one of a kind or in small editions. This ring, a later piece in Wiener’s oeuvre, is indicative of his progressive style that often changed to reflect the times. After the late 70’s, his work became more organic than geometric, favoring rich colored hammered or textured gold and colored gemstones over the earlier, more hard-edged silver works. Elegant and comfortable . Size 5 3/4.
