This wonderfully flamboyant vintage silver ring hailing from old Mexico is not for the faint of finger, rendered in a slender ellipse shape it covers the finger from side to side and reaches well past the knuckle!
The ring features a marquise cut chrysoprase gemstone (sometimes called Mexican jade) that is carved into a Mayan mask design. The stone is domed and a vivid shade of deep emerald green, very eye catching! It is bezel set into the mount and framed by a line of rope trim and large silver beads.
A simple D-profile band with split shoulders completes this impressive and unique ring.
