A remarkably beautiful and exquisitely crafted 970 silver and aventurine bracelet by Taxco silversmith Antonio Pineda. The ribbed silver links alternate with oval aventurine stones that are in a hinged setting and swivel, giving movement and life to this piece. The bracelet will fit a wrist 6 1/2" or possibly 6 3/4" around in the inside total. It is hard to get an exact measurement due to the construction of the bracelet. It is 1/2" wide and weighs 95 grams...

Signed Victoria we have a rare piece that has an exceptional carving. The more I view it the more I think that it looks like a jaguar more than one of the ancient Gods. No chips or repairs and it had to be in a loving home in the condition it is in. Colors in the stone range from ivory, brown, greens to black all swirled beautifully. The size is stunning with a 20in. length. The drop is 2 1/8th in. x 3in. and it is seated on a really thick, higher than 925 silver base...

One of the few known female Taxco silversmiths and designers and a modernist at that, Erika Hult de Corral's work has a slick elegance and a quality that justifies the desirability her creations enjoy. The set of "pagoda" dangle earrings I am presenting here is both difficult to find and a pleasure to wear and to behold. They are just shy of 1 7/8" long by 3/4" wide (at their widest) and weigh 14.0 grams (for the set)...

Valentin Vidaurreta was a designer during the Spratling era and many collectors believe the very best of all. His work as in this treasure is stunning. Pieces signed by him are so rare as he was not in Taxco a great deal of time in his life. Much of his work was brought to fruition in Hector Aguilar's shop, hence the eagle 9 stamped on this necklace. There is 17 inches of wearable length and a bit over 1 in. tall. The weight is a heavy 124 grams...

We have a Matl Salas, gold wash, and snake bracelet to match a Matl snake necklace also listed on our site. The length is 8in. long but fits like a 7 in. bracelet because of it's width of .75in. and depth of the weave. The hallmark shown has a worn S and M and is also photographed on it's curved surface. These snakes are a time consuming work as they are hand woven with silver wire. All coils are present and beautifully spaced. The weight is 76 grams heavy.

Vintage Margot de Taxco sterling silver astrological pendant necklace, this one is for the Leo in your life and like all Margot's zodiac jewelry, sculptural and heavy.

The pendant has a diameter of 1 9/18" (not including the bail) and adds a 2" drop to the chain which is itself 30" long (easily adjustable due to the hook clasp). The chain only weighs a...

Gorgeous set of Margot de Taxco dangle earrings, I believe this design is rather difficult to find in this form and I am thrilled to present it here. Ovals, curves, spheres and domes all combine to create a delightful pair of teardrop treasures that measure 1 7/8" long by 3/4" wide. The earrings weigh 14.6 grams (for the set) and are fully and appropriately marked with Margot's signature, Eagle 16 assay mark and des. no 5740 (I believe; it's double stamped and difficult to read).
