Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver Black Enamel Inlay Gecko Signet Ring - Size 10 1/2 #c779
This fabulous Taxco ring features a very thick and chunky sterling silver setting. The rectangular face of the ring, or signet portion, features the horizontal figure of a gecko or lizard that has been inlaid with black enamel. The black enamel inlay really pops against the silver setting of the ring, making the gecko figure stand out prominently. The rest of the ring is finished in a smooth silver. It's a marvelous ring!

The ring measures about a size 10 1/2 and weighs a substantial 10.3 grams. It is signed with a partial Taxco registration number of "TF_9" and hallmarked "925" on the inside of the band. I believe this to be a true Taxco ring as I have seen similar Taxco men's rings with registration marks that have this TF_9 mark and also marked only with a TF. I believe this ring has been sized which may have obliterated some its original marks.

This is a marvelous ring! It's big and chunky and really makes a statement on the hand. It is a men's ring, but its style is unisex and it could be easily worn by either a man or a woman. It's a great piece for anyone who loves geckos or lizards and would make a great addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection. The ring is in very good vintage condition. The black enamel inlay is in great condition. The ring has been worn and loved and the silver does have scratches and minor dents from use. As mentioned previously, I believe the ring has been sized up. The silver in the back is slightly thinner and the ring is slightly out of round. It's still an awesome ring with a unique and beautiful look!

SIGNED: PARTIAL TAXCO REGISTRATION MARK OF TF_9 AND 925 ON THE INSIDE OF THE BAND (BELIEVE RING WAS RE-SIZED WHICH OBLITERATED A PORTION OF THE MARKS)

CONDITION: VERY GOOD, PRE-OWNED, VINTAGE CONDITION. NORMAL SURFACE SCRATCHES FROM PREVIOUS USE & WEAR. THE ENAMEL IS IN GREAT CONDITION. THE RING HAS SCRATCHES & MINOR DENTS FROM PREVIOUS WEAR. THE RING BAND IS SLIGHTLY THINNER IN THE BACK & IT IS SLIGHTLY OUT OF ROUND WHICH APPEARS TO BE FROM A PREVIOUS RE-SIZING.
