Erika Hult de Corral Ric Mexican modernist silver and lapis Ring

on Jan 28, 2020 in archived

Big, modernist Erika Hult de Corral sterling silver and triple lapis ring made in the post-1980 period yet bold and beautiful! Though the so-called “T-mark” jewelry from Mexico are now considered almost “officially” vintage, at least the ones from the early 1980s, I don’t deal in them unless it’s a piece by a designer I know and respect or if it’s an affordable, well-made copy of an earlier “big name” piece. This ring obviously belongs in the first category – just look at it! The geometric cut-outs in the silver-work temper the massiveness of the ring’s body and the color in the lapis spheres is dark and rich. It’s Ric doing her magic all right…

 

Size/Weight: sz 6.75 US (resizable by your jeweler provided you don’t mind losing some of the hallmarks); face is 1″ N-S and 5/8″ E-W; 14.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: signed “Ric” in cursive as well as “TA-26” and “MEXICO 925”; post-1980

Condition: excellent vintage with impressive presence, a great modernist design that touches on brutalism almost, beautiful lapis stones and no damage or repairs noted
