On me, it is pinky ring. MARKS: Inside band Top line is Lapponia mark, 925 (silver purity), crown in heart (Finnish National mark), date code U7 for 1973 (I think it is a'U' but could be a'V' for 1974). The next line is'Sterling','Finland', and the last line'Lapponia' and'Bjorn'. Expect the possibility of light surface marks for normal aging and use. Björn Weckström was the first to combine silver and acrylic in jewelry design.
At first this combination was considered strange. That changed when in 1975 John Lennon appeared on the Dick Cavett show with Yoko Ono, who wore Weckström's Petrified Lake acrylic ring. The TV cameras took several close-ups of the ring, and soon silver and acrylic jewelry became much sought after. PLEASE SCAN DOWN FOR HIGHER RESOLUTION PHOTOS.
