Slick Taxco modernist silver ring in a highly stylized floral design with a beautiful aventurine flat-cut stone nested in a hefty sterling setting. I think it is based on a Pineda design and I have seen it executed by Erika Hult de Corral as well, if I remember correctly, yet in our case there is no maker’s signature. The assay mark that it bears is not very clear so I couldn’t say whether the ring was made in either one of their workshops but I can guarantee you it is very well made, has amazing patina and the stone’s color is such a soothing treat for the eyes. Did I mention that it’s also adjustable?
Size/Weight: sz 7 US (resizable by your jeweler thanks to its open shank); face is 1″ E-W and 3/4″ N-S; 13.4 grams
Hallmarks / Date: Eagle assay mark not very clearly stamped as well as “TAXCO” and “MEX925”; 1950s-70s
Condition: excellent vintage with great patina, a very slick, mod design, featuring a gorgeous stone with no damage and no repairs noted except for a couple of tiny tiny fleabites on the edge of the azurite that are, however, expected with a ring of this age and not visible to the naked eye
SOLD – Thank you!
