I just found this ring via a link form some mySpace page, and it’s just fabulous – click the image to see more photos and more info (and click on the ‘Click to enlarge’ link, you really need to see the side and back views to get how bitchin’ this thing is).

It’s a brilliant rendering of a mexican calaveras de azúcar (sugar skull).

I’m a huge fan of mexican Dia De Los Muertos iconography (like Posada), and mexican folk art in general; I won several pieces by the Linares family, and my house is full of mexican skulls and skeletons. So this is a cross-over of two of my favorite aesthetics; teh silver skull ring with the calavera.

Have That as my daughter used to say when she saw something she wanted right now.

The jeweler, House of Wittelsbach, have a number of other great pieces. But it’s the sugar skull I gotta have.

  1. Tis gorgeous!

    Now, we tried to work out some kind of deal on the jacket a few weeks ago, but my lawyers never heard back from your lawyers…. we could throw the ring in.

    I’m just sayin’.

    hugs, E

  2. Merrick, you’re right, though extra fingers could make fisting a bit more difficult, with my big mitts!

    E, my lawyers take bribes. So do I.

    Yes it’s true, I can be bought.

  3. Syl, not would, will.

    Note on this ring: I just got some additional info from the makes, it’s huge. The band is 14.45mm (almost 2/3 of an inch) wide and the skull is 35.85mm from top to chin (almost 1.5 inches). I think that’s even bigger than the Deadringers Classic.

    It’s a beast, and it will be mine, as soon as I decide which size I need.
