The ring was inspired by Masonic and Odd Fellows Folk Art.
A handshake - symbolizing friendship or 'fellowship' is the center piece of the ring. A Sunrise and Floral engraving adorn the face of the ring also. Each side of the ring has a shield with the Fleur-de-Lis.
The face and side accents are made from brass and the ring itself is made from solid silver. This is a large ring with a nice weight to it. The face is aprox 1 inch x 3/4 inch.
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.
