Authentic 1940-50s Enameled Indian Chief Mexican Biker Ring Size 12.5

Popularized by the 1940s biker clubs who hung out on the border towns these tough looking oversize rings, made from melted down pesos, caught on as a motorcycle jewelry trend across the US. The craze grew even more during the Johnny Law era when brass knuckles were outlawed and bikers substituted an oversized ring on every finger for the fist fighting weapon of choice.
These days, thankfully, they’re worn as more of a fashion statement by those in the know.

With an exceptional Indian Chief wearing full enameled head-dress and embellished with aztec lions on the sides - SOLD.
