Mexican Taxco style silver and calcite mask ring


A wild vintage Mexican piece of jewelry!  One of the jade-ish stones used by Mexican jewelers, this is calcite, with a rich green hue and easier to carve.  So, a huge carved calcite face or mask, set into a surprisingly delicate silver ring.  The edges of the band behind the edges of the face, are curly foliate forms with leaves – so much labor, only seen with effort.  Silver prongs hold the stone securely.  Small-ish size, difficult to measure due to the shape but it’s around a size 7 and it could easily be sized.  The only mark is a partial “STERLING” on the inside of the band.
