Vintage Carmen Beckmann Ring Amethyst Turquoise and Silver Ring 5-in-1 (Connected Stacking) Size 7-1/2 Mexico Signed Rare

Offered for sale here is a vintage silver ring comprising five individual rings linked together into a single very distinctive piece. They are linked with a single small silver band at the bottom or palm side of the ring; they are loose and unattached at the top. Nine very small round bezel-set cabochons (about 3.5 mm in diameter), three of amethyst and six of turquoise, are scattered across the five rings, interspersed with applied decorative silver balls and S-shaped scrolls of square silver wire. The sum of all these parts is a complex and detailed design with a highly textured and colorful surface.

Carmen Beckmann is a very accomplished silver artist who operated a shop from the 1950s (some sources say the 1940s) into the present century. She appears to have always worked in the town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She is described as being “in her 90s” on one current website, and a current online directory of San Miguel jewelers notes the Carmen Beckmann shop. Her current status could not be verified. The ring offered here was purchased in San Miguel in the late 1960s.

The ring bears a stamped “BECKMANN” makers mark, and another stamped mark reading “MEXICO”. There is no Sterling or .925 mark; although the ring is certainly silver, its content is not marked on the piece. It is in good vintage condition with no damaged or missing parts. The metal surfaces have moderately dark oxidation patina, and the fine scratches and tiny dents consistent with vintage use wear.
