I came by here the other day and saw a piece of 'cannetille' jewelry and wouldn't ya know, I had just purchased this ring. Apparently many people consider this type or style to be filigree, me being one of those that did, until now. I have learned that cannetille jewelry became popular in 1820's to the 1830's.
The detail is amazing, made with a very steady hand! This has 31 total rosettes and it's a dome ring, not a poison ring AND it's the best adjustable ring I've ever seen. Normally, I thought of adjustable rings to be 'cheap', not this one. It's a heavy 10 grams, but adjusts to fit snuggly and comfortably on each finger, index, middle and ring fingers.
On the back is an incised eagle 108. That's my question here, where is 108? I can't seem to find it anywhere. The maker is S.D. and there is a 'star' under the 0.925 all within the circle of Hecho en Mexico. I'm pretty sure I have read here that some have books on Mexican jewelry and I'm hoping to figure this one out.
