huge Los Ballesteros Mexican silver and smokey quartz Ring

on May 22, 2019 in archived

Stupendous Los Ballesteros modernist ring wrought in sterling silver and housing a huge smokey quartz faceted gem in a towering setting! I love “kapow” rings and this one is the epitome of the … word. A veritable show-stopper, a ring that does not need anything else to support it when you dress to impress. I will rest my case here and leave the rest to the photos…


Size/Weight: comfortable sz 6 (your jeweler would be able to re-size it for you but you might lose part of the hallmarks yet not the Los Ballesteros signature); face is 15/16″ in diameter; gallery rises approx. 1/2″ off finger; 17.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully hallmarked with the Los Ballesteros logo as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO”, “STERLING 925” and Eagle 47 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: very good vintage with strong design, a fantastic gem, beautiful patina, and no damage or repairs noted; this is a well-loved, well-enjoyed ring and the silver shows evidence of that yet nothing dramatic or unsightly that affects the way it presents


SOLD – Thank you!
