New additions to Hopea’s collection, how I love these elegantly minimal 14K gold rings from Finland. All from about 1960 – 1970, they really capture the modernist movement towards simple forms and an emphasis on honesty of materials. Local stones were also preferred by designers who elevated them, incorporating them into modern work with gold.

1 / Gold “Valkea” ring from 1964, Finland.

3 / Nils Westerback ring. Finland, 1967.
