Mother of Pearl BIG Ring Sterling Silver 1970s Jewelry #14834
This is a the largest, most unique, vintage Mother of Pearl you will probably ever see! Not only is the oval Mother of Pearl cab HUGE, but it is also a perfect specimen with deep iridescent reflectiveness and the cab is flawless with no pits or dimples.
The ring is made of very thickly cast sterling silver and is signed 925.
The frame around the cab is a Mid Century Modern double layer design with small round polished sterling beads all the way around the perimeter. The ring looks like it might be a Mexico design but with no Mexico mark, I believe the ring was probably made by American Indians in the desert southwest in the 1960s or 1970s.
It is assuredly hand crafted as the sterling setting was hand cut and hand soldered.
The ring is a size 5 3/4 and the ring band is not adjustable.
The face of the ring measures 1 5/8" tall x 1" wide or 40 mm x 25 mm. The ring weighs a hefty 15 grams.
The entire ring is in superb condition and is microscopically clean and bright. There are no imperfections or flaws. The ring band and the sterling on the back has some light sings of gentle handling and wear. If you would like the ring size to be enlarged, a jeweler can enlarge the band for you.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation ring box.
