I bought this ring because it’s very distinctive and I loved it on first sight. It was sold from a seller who was selling a lot of his jewellery. I’ve never heard of Hans Rudi Hofer, I know he is from Germany nothing else, I’ve looked online but found nothing really of interest about him.
The ring was made circa 1930, made of silver and gold leaves with a large peridot and tiny rose cut diamonds, to me it screams Art and Crafts. Under the leaves and diamonds is a black surface at first I thought it was enamel, now I’m thinking it’s oxidised silver.
If anybody has any information regarding Hans Rudi Hofer, I would be really interested to know more about him
Many thanks for looking
