Vintage sterling silver Mexico made malachite ring. This large ring has a uniquely sculpted modernist style setting that resembles a sun with a large round malachite cabochon set in the center. The stone has prominent striping with a single blue stripe that appears to be chrysocolla.
Condition: Some signs of wear on the band and light surface scratches on the stone. The stone has some space around the edges of the setting but is not currently loose. May need future reinforcing and it is recommended to keep from getting the ring wet in order to maintain the integrity.
***All jewelry is lightly cleaned and earrings are disinfected. Personal preferences vary greatly for the amount of patina on vintage jewelry, therefore I only lightly polish with a sunshine cloth as needed.
Size: The band size is 12.25 and measures just under 3/4" wide at the top. Weighs 17.3g
Marks: 925 & a worn Mexico mark
