THESE EXTRA PHOTOS ARE PROVIDED AS PROVENANCE. Although currently famous for their micro-inlay, they started out doing traditional work like this in the early 1970s. Almost all of the pieces in the collection were hallmarked with their stamp, however there were a few pieces without hallmarks. This is one of them.
The last 3 photos show some of the rings from that collection and a couple of the hallmarks. Although there are various styles, it is obviously the same work from one ring to the next in the collection. When he retired and moved back to AZ recently, he brought the collection out of storage and we then acquired it. The items were NOS from over 40 years ago and all were early works of Carl and Irene!
