1950's Antonio Pineda 970 silver Modernist ring with three graduated moonstone cabochons in a conforming setting. Pineda apprenticed for William Spratling for eight years, and in the 1950's was widely considered the leading Modernist designer and craftsman among the mid-century Mexican silversmiths. His rings are among the rarest forms of his work. This fine example has moonstone cabochons measuring approximately 5.5, 6.5 and 7.5-mm in an oblong setting with a notch cut-out of the shank on the shorter end. The design is clean and crisp and the ring exudes a great sense of strength, all reinforced by the industrial nature inherent in the sleek and lustrous silver and moonstones. The shank is stamped with Pineda's post-1953 crown mark, an eagle with a "17" and "970" for the silver content. In excellent vintage condition, measures 7/8 x 5/16-inches at the setting, a size 8 3/4 U.S. and weighs 9.6 grams.
