This fabulous ring has a unique, eye-catching design rendered in Taxco, Mexico. The minimal and striking ring is crafted from sterling silver and slightly adjusts. A beautiful, vintage ring from the 1980s to wear alone or with other statement pieces!
Taxco silver is highly coveted and collectible with a high quality of craftsmanship in each piece. Taxco is a tiny town between Acapulco and Mexico City with a long mining history. In the late 1920s, a highway finally extended to Taxco, which enabled William Spratling, a gentleman from the US, to find the town and discover the potential in the artisan community. He invited great metalsmiths to join him in apprenticing young artists, and the world took notice of the divine craftsmanship in the jewelry produced.
The ring is in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. The surface of the silver shows fine lines and marks, nothing major or noticeable. The silver has a light layer of patina which has not been polished. The ring can be polished upon request. The ring is marked MEXICO TB-81 925 which means the ring was created in Taxco by the 81rst artist to register with the initial B. 925 is the metal fineness mark for 92.5% silver.
The ring is a size 7.5 and can be very slightly adjusted. The head measures 1″ tall and 3/4″ wide.
