A dagger stabbing through a heart, surrounded by roses is the face of this old fashioned style Mexican Souvenir Ring. There are two side accents - a skull & crossbones + hour glass. The ring represents the sense of love & death.
The face and side accents are made from brass and the ring itself is made from solid silver.
The ring is on the large side, aprox 1 inch x 3/4 inch and has a nice weight to it.
Hand crafted and made in Brooklyn, New York.
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.
