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

on Oct 28, 2017 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings


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


Offered at $195.00
