The original “motion” or “spinner” ring was initially created in 1971 by the renowned jewelry designer Norman Teufel. He manufactured these pieces in Beverly Hills, California.
The early rings, such as this 14k yellow gold one pictured here are no longer produced and have more diamond weight than those offered today.
Here the signed Teufel kinetic ”swinger ring” displays a crescent moon and star motif. In all, thirteen brilliant cut diamonds, total weight of .85 carats with G-H color and VS clarity appoint the piece.
Utterly fascinating, the crescent moves around the “star” in a circular motion and are highly collectible and pure celestial fun.
