Erik Granit vintage silver jewelry
Born in 1930 in Helsinki, Erik Granit was only twenty-four years old when he founded his own company and opened his store in the capital of Finland. For more than three decades of his activity he has created hundreds of innovative minimalist, abstract, geometric and modernist designs. Traditionally, Granit himself and other designers who worked for the company handcrafted jewelry models (mostly rings), with the use of sterling silver.
Noteworthy, the marking on the jewelry pieces included various small stamps. In particular, Erik Granit (or EG), 925H (or 925 Sterling) for silver purity, Helsinki stamp, Crown, or Boat, or Turku. Also, the marking included a letter and a number (for the year of production) – for example, S7 for 1971.
Unfortunately, the talented designer Erik Granit died in the prime of his creative powers, at the age of 58. Due to this, his once successful jewelry company ceased to exist in 1988. Jewelry pieces created in 1950-80s continue to be popular with vintage jewelry collectors today.
