Los Castillo Mozaico Azteca Mexican silver modernist Ring

on May 24, 2019 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings

Modernist Los Castillo Mexican silver ring with azurite and malachite inlay in the Mozaico Azteca style, this is an exercise in modernist geometry. There is something distinctly zen, if you allow me the term, in the circle-in-circle design that dominates the flat ring face. Quite elemental still impressive because of the intense colors in the inlay, it has been well-loved and enjoyed during its long life…


Size/Weight: sz 10 (possibly resizable but not dramatically, if you need to make it smaller); face is 3/4″ in diameter; 15.2 grams.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: “LOS CASTILLO”, “925 MEXICO” and Eagle 3, which the Los Castillo used yet also signed with initials “SMM”; 1950s-60s

Condition: very good vintage with great patina and light scratches in the silver shank as expected of a well-loved, thoroughly enjoyed ring yet no damage and no repairs noted; the inlay is all present albeit its plane is slightly lower than the sterling cloisons that delineate the circle-in-circle design


ON HOLD – please inquire!
