rare Los Castillo Mexican silver Ring with Chinese jade bead

on Jun 14, 2018 in archived

Rare Los Castillo sterling ring, its shank having a hand-hammered look that brings to mind Arts and Crafts jewelry, this beauty becomes even more interesting because of the old hand-carved Chinese jade bead that adorns it. Shaped as a pumpkin, the bead is secured in place with a silver pin that goes through it and its color is a rich, soothing sage. I am thrilled to be presenting such a one-of-a-kind treasure…

 

Size/Weight: sz 5.75 (the perfect pinky, let me tell you!); band is 1/2″ wide at top center; bead is 5/8″ in diameter and that’s also the height of the ring when you have it on; 9.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: “LOS CASTILLO TAXCO” and partially stamped Eagle assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with fantastic patina, a great combination of materials and no damage or repairs noted

 

 

SOLD – Thank you!
