ornate Gerardo Lopez Mexican silver repousse Ring

on Jun 26, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings

Ornate and beautifully made, with a fantastic patina that makes the juxtaposition between the darkened recesses of the design and the glowing raised surfaces even more dramatic, this ornate and difficult-to-find Mexican silver ring is signed by Gerardo Lopez. I consider Lopez one of Taxco’s foremost maestros in the art of repoussage and the ring at hand is, I believe, a telling example. I will let the photos continue the story…
