Abraham Paz Mexican Deco silver and amethyst Ring

on Sep 17, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings

The quintessential Art Deco designer, Abraham Paz is one of the earliest maestros of Mexico’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance. He worked in Mexico City and many of the designs we associate with Fred Davis are actually Paz’s creations. His minimalist “masks”, shield-form links and tiered ring settings epitomize the elegant geometry the 1920s and 1930s are known for while also foreshadowing the less-is-more attitude of modernism. Pinky-size yet easily resizable, the ring I am presenting here is adorned by a piece of amethyst rich in inclusions that rests graciously upon an angular sterling gallery…

 

Size / Weight: currently sz 4.5 US (yet easily resizable by your jeweler); face is 3/4″ N-S and 5/8″ E-W; 5.3 grams

Hallmarks / Date: signed with maker’s initials “AP” as shown as well as “STERLING MEXICO”; 1920s-30s

Condition: very good vintage with great design, nice patina and a beautiful stone; no damage and nor any repairs noted but there is a very small fleabite off one ridge – not visible to the naked eye though and thus not distracting from the ring’s beauty
