Antonio Pineda Mexican 970 silver and moonstone Ring

on Jun 18, 2018 in archived

Towering Antonio Pineda silver and big moonstone cabochon ring wrought in his favorite – signature, I should say – .970 alloy which is higher in precious metal content than the standard sterling. What’s not to love about this beauty? Look at the raised crown setting and the ornamentation on the shoulders. Though it’s not an overwhelmingly big ring, it has a lift that catches the eye and the mystical semi-translucence of the moonstone bewitches and mesmerizes…


Size/Weight: sz 5.75 (can be resized but your jeweler will have to add to the shank on both sides since the hallmarks are right across the back of the stone); face is 3/4″ by 1/2″; ring rises approx. 11/16″ off finger when worn; 7.6 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Antonio’s crown, “970” and Eagle 208 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with great patina, a silky, gorgeous stone and no damage or repairs noted
