A lovely ring by one of Finland's foremost jewelry designers, Liisa Vitali. From her iconic "Leppäkertu" series from 1966, this design was known as "ladybird".This simple yet sophisticated design features a large, perforated sphere of silver which sits elegantly upon its band.
Liisa Vitali was part of an avant garde group of jewellers who in the 1960s pushed Finland onto the international stage of design. Beginning her career at a young age, she developed her skills working alongside designer Tapio Wirkkala at the firm of Westerback Oy. Vitali's designs have become quintessentially Finnish - her original creations are still reproduced today.
