Stunning modernist square ring by the phenomenal UK designer, Joel Degen. It has recently been professionally polished and looks absolutely phenomenal! I believe the center accent piece is Titanium but I am not 100% sure. A rare and spectacular estate find, perfect for Degen collectors or lovers of modernist and bold jewelry.

**The last picture is a photo of a collection of Degen's rings from 1972, including this exact ring design. Courtesy of the Design Council's slide collection from Manchester Metropolitan University, in Manchester, UK. The Goldsmiths Hall 2000 exhibition ‘Treasures from the 20th Century’ featured a Joel Degen ring from this series. Circa 1973 he shifted his attention to working in gold and titanium.

Joel Degen (1941-) His pieces are ‘constructed’ using 18ct gold or titanium rivets, rather than ‘sculpted’. Brooches, necklaces, pendants, cufflinks and earrings featuring anodised titanium, stainless steel, sterling silver and 18ct gold elements use similar construction techniques. The effect produced by the marriage of modern industrial methods with traditional metals, as well as the use of unorthodox approaches to construction, is reinforced by the cool, unfussy character of the design. Nodding references to our technological environment underpin the whole collection. 
Joel Degen pieces are held at The Goldsmiths Hall, The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Australia, and other museums and institutions throughout the world. He has exhibited widely. - Bio courtesy of Contemporary Applied Arts Gallery
