Wonderful domed black onyx or glass ring. Circa 1930's-50's, .75x1" I am leaning to onyx but not certain. Marked MEXICO TOBIAS round shape and then .925. There's a chip which can be seen in pic 2 lower left. I think it could be buffed out -the white spot in pic is just this photographer's error :)
Bonnie found a similar ring on etsy by artist Abraham Tobias. It has the exact same shank design. The seller said it was a rare 1930's ring. Maybe mine is that old and has travelled far and well with only a chip. Also from online research learned that Tobias didn't often work with stones and is famous for his repouse work.
Very dramatic ring. I wear it a lot.
