Wonderful, early ring by Mexican designer Matilde Poulat who worked under the name Matl. The ring beautifully combines amethyst with turquoise, as is often seen in her work. In addition, she utilized the entire sides and shank as part of the ornate silver design. The ring is size 7 1/2; made in the 1950's.
