Hallmarked with Bernice Goodspeed's initial B and an unexpected style for one of the Women of Taxco to produce. These stones are stunning and have warmed over time. The necklace is 19in. long and .75in. at it's widest point. The drop with a Victorian style is 2.25in. tall. The silhouette is rich and this is very thick silver displaying quality through and through. Sometimes less is more, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!

Slick, modernist Sigi Pineda sterling silver and pearls cuff bracelet, the two pearls lifted above their oxidized background and showcased in a shadow-box asymmetrical opening. This is Sigi at one of his best moments, I believe, the choice of materials a favorite of mine and a combination that Antonio Pineda also benefited from during his career. The cuff has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (including the 1 3/8" gap) and its width reaches 1 1/16" at center front...
Yes, this certainly does look just like the famous antique Art Nouveau rose ring by Uncas. The minute we get one of those, it's gone -- usually via a waiting list -- so the Clark and Coombs version will probably prove popular, too. It's a great bargain, being a more recent example, so you should probably grab it quickly if it appeals to you...

One of my favorite Margot de Taxco all-silver designs, the beaded, undulating links of "5247" exude an unsurpassed sense of motion and their architecturality is only enhanced with patina as the years go by. The bracelet and matching earrings set at hand is a find for the collector - especially since the bracelet is not an easy piece to come upon. And it's a pleasure to wear.....
