FIND YOUR RING SIZE

METHOD 1 MEASURE A RING YOU CURRENTLY OWN Place your ring over the circle with the closest matching size, making sure the inside of the ring fits around the outside of the circle. If you are between sizes, order up. ring-size-method-1 METHOD 2 MEASURE YOUR FINGER WITH A RULER
  1. Get a non-stretchy string or paper about 15 cm (6 in) long and 0.6 cm (0.25 in) wide.
  2. Wrap around the base of your finger. It has to fit snugly, but not too tightly.
  3. Mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps to form a circle.
  4. Compare the length of the string/paper to the chart. That is your ring size.*If you are between sizes, order a larger size.
ring-size-method-2 Finger measuring tips Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature -- fingers can shrink or swell when cold or hot. If your knuckle is much larger than your finger, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around. Wide rings For wide rings, you should go up half a size for a comfortable fit.

Description

Vintage Mexican sterling silver post dangle earrings circa 1940s. These earrings are mixed metal, or “piedra negra” – inlaid with blue and black resin (or perhaps onyx) and feature turquoise-blue cabochon posts (note they are not turquoise gemstones). Piedra negra is a technique where mixed metals and stone (usually black onyx) are layered and pinned together to a silver backing. Toño was known for mastering this difficult process.

They are stamped “Hecho en Mexico”, “T140” (the design number), “piedra negra” and “sterling Taxco AC” (the mark of Cecilia, the Taxco retailer for whom Toño produced jewellery) and are hallmarked “Toño“. They are in excellent vintage condition.
