Vintage Iconic 1970s Original LOVE RING by Robert Indiana Heavy Brass
Heavy Polished Brass Ring is a version of Robert Indiana's LOVE Image and is one of the most Iconic images of our time.
Original Vintage Robert Indiana Love Ring The iconic vintage "Love" symbol was designed by pop artist Robert Indiana as a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art in 1964. With the impact of the Free Love Hippy Movement the symbol was quickly embraced by the public and has been rendered in countless forms since. In response to the immense popularity of the symbol and following the construction of the Love statue in 1970 the Love ring was produced by Charles Revson (of Revlon & Ultima II cosmetics) in the 1970's around the same time he was reproducing the high end costume versions of Cartier's Love bracelet designed by Aldo Cipullo. The ring is comprised of heavy gold electroplated metal and features the Love symbol with tilted O jetting out from the setting with high relief sculptural details and textured finish on the sides. It is a substantial and well constructed piece of costume jewelry and has a nice weight and feel to it. The ring measures 1" wide and 7/8" deep at it's greatest points and measures a size 6 on the mandrel. It is in excellent vintage condition with minor surface wear
This ring is highly collectible and usually sells for well over $350. I'm listing this one to sell.
