Huge Vintage Mexico Sterling Amethyst Glass Ring: This vintage Mexico sterling silver ring is absolutely enormous! The traditional scalloped design is set with a massive 18mm round amethyst glass stone. The ring weighs a substantial 13.61 grams total weight. It sits 1/2" high above your finger, and is 1 1/8" across. This is hard to size because of the curve of the scallops on the bottom of the ring, it won't fit on the mandrel correctly, but I would guess around an 8. It can easily be sized up or down by your jeweler. The silver has a lovely patina. it is signed 925 ARC
