Origins of the Ring
This type of ring is known as a Mexican Biker Ring or Souvenir Ring. After the Mexican Civil War the currency plummeted and the Peso was almost valueless. Jewelers melted the coins down and made them into these large rings. Tourist from America would visit and buy the rings as Souvenirs. Also, biker gangs would come down to the border and buy these rings and use them instead of the then illegal Knuckle Dusters. The Mexican Biker Ring or Souvenir Ring became a popular and legendary style with outsiders.
