We really feel that there is nothing more iconic than an old skull and crossbones. Weather its memento mori, motorcycle, horror movie, the skull is timeless and gets better with age.

During the 1940's, the Mexican peso was a low value currency.  Artisans in small towns and along the border, would melt down the worthless peso and re-cast them into something they could sell and make more money than the actual coins were worth.  Tourists would visit and buy a souvenir ring to remember their travels.  The styles of the rings usually consisted of skulls, Indians, and other popular culture motifs.  Known as Mexican souvenir rings or Mexican biker rings ( as a replacement for the outlawed brass knuckles ), they became a statement piece in hot rod, motorcycle, and even celebrity culture of the 1940's-60's.                        

Hand-finished, soldered, aged, and polished one at a time, making each one unique so no two are exactly alike
