Frank Lowenstein Cuernavaca - Mexico City DF

I just saw this on the Maestros de Taxco website - here is their description on Lowenstein:

This amazing studio piece was made by designer Frank Lowenstein in Cuernavaca Mexico. Like most of his pieces it is a one-of-a-kind collectible ring. The ring is completely hand-wrought and Mr. Lowenstein has specialized in unique stones that he cuts, polishes and then "listens to" so he can make the most glorious rings. This ring is made in sterling and stamped with Frank's hallmark.

No pic of the Frank Lowenstein hallmark was located or posted. Also, this is the first time I have come upon this particular designer. I will have to do some more research to see where Lowenstein is from.


  1. Hi there! I know this jeweler in Mexico. He lives in Cuernavaca but sells his one of a kind jewelery pieces in Mexico City. This specific piece you have here is a Quartz and if you look closely you can see that under it there is a bolder opal, that way when you look at it in the light it plays like a Kaleidoscope... a fantastic piece!

  2. Sorry to disappoint you. Lowenstein does not cut or pulish the stones he uses. He buys them, without giving any credit to the stone craftsmen. He is a BIG liar.

  3. I worked for Frank Lowenstein in Teotihuacan, Mexico in 1963. I also made models for rings using lost wax casting with gold and chatham emeralds. I don't know if this is the same Frank Lowenstein or a relative.
