Dominguez Mexican Deco silver jeweled Ring ~ Matl style

on Sep 15, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings

A contemporary of Matilde Poulat’s maestro Dominguez worked in the same style the renowned maestra is known for and his jewelry offer a worthy alternative to Matl’s pieces whose prices have been steadily increasing over the last years. Held on an ornate raised oval platform, amethyst and turquoise cabs are nestled among “dimpled” dots and twist-rope wirework. The color of the stones, rich and saturated to begin with, is enhanced by the oxidized background and the warm patina of time. A veritable ode to the Mexico City style of jewelry making…
