Antonio Pineda Mexican 970 silver and vermeil Band Ring ~ Taxco pre-Colombian key design

on Oct 28, 2017 in archived


Rarely seen Antonio Pineda silver vermeil band ring, this is the dream piece for those of us who love Mexican silver yet like a touch of gold from time to time as well! I want to call this a “pre-Colombian key” motif and find its architectural quality very appealing. The gold wash has mellowed over time and the dark recesses in the design look dramatic against it…


Size/Weight: size 6 (not resizable due to the continuous band of decoration); just shy of 1/2″ wide; 9.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Antonio’s crown, Eagle 17 as well as “SILVER”, “970” and “STERLING MEXICO”;¬†pre-1970

Condition: excellent vintage with the light signs of wear that add character and bestow a life-story to old jewelry


SOLD – Thank you!
