Spectacular 1950s Mexican silver repousse necklace in the style developed by Margot de Taxco and the Los Castillo, this piece combines motifs already familiar to the seasoned collector in a fresh, all-new way. Signed by a maestro who, though listed, still remains unidentified, the necklace is carefully worked and immaculately finished with confident repoussage, crisp lines and a strong sense of motion...
Margot de Taxco design 5647 is a beautiful floral motif with the bracelet and earrings having a stately presence of 1.75in. tall. The repousse is thick and heavy with a combined weight of 155.5 grams. The parure has no damage and is an excellent example of this design. Definitely collector worthy. The necklace is 16.25in. of wearable length. The center piece comes together with a simple ring and the look is divine. The leaves go around the neck with the sizable flowering sections making the drop...
This pretty ring comes out of the era when Edwardian styles were sliding into Art Deco. It is marked “925” for sterling silver, and set with a pretty ruby, birthstone for July. Rubies have been called “the queen of stones and the stone of kings.” The ring has the mellow patina of age, and is size 6. Please read this description and look at the photos very carefully, as we are not responsible for buyer remorse. Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
Stunning and rare this early sterling silver and Mexican fire opal ring is from the Los Castillo taller of Taxco. Ring size is 7 1/2 but is adjustable. The face of the ring measures 1" top to bottom. Ring likely designed by Antonio Castillo's wife and partner at the time, Margot Van Voorhies. She would later be known as Margot De Taxco after opening her own Taxco design work shop. Fully hallmarked with early linear 980 LOS CASTILLO TAXCO. Beautiful condition with no issues...
Early Taxco modernist silver and moonstones cuff bracelet very reminiscent of Antonio Pineda in both style and materials combination. Minimalist, with stunning presence and the hand-wrought quality that characterizes Mexican jewelry from the '30s and '40s, an unsigned piece to re-affirm the conviction that gorgeous jewelry does not always have to come with a big signature attached to it...
Signed with initials "MM" which are attributed by many in the field of vintage Mexican silver jewelry collecting to Maximiliano Mondragon, this is one of my favorite Taxco motifs. Mondragon worked for Spratling and is considered among the most accomplished maestros of his time, his work always meticulously finished, generous in weight and very often wrought in 980 silver, which is higher in purity than sterling...
Marcel Boucher trained in Paris with Cartier and traveled to Taxco. He set up his shop Parisina and produced for a short time. The necklace and bracelet is 1.25in. tall. The necklace is 16.5in. long and the bracelet is 7.5in. long. Condition is free of any damage and is collector quality. The two hook together for a luxurious 24in. long strand of thick chain. One ring is twisted rope and the other ring is smooth creating a depth to the design. Timeless, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
Five deep tea colored citrines rest in sterling silver orbs in this dazzling Victorian Scottish bracelet. The stones are sizable with the center citrine measuring just over 1/2 inch in height and the others just under 1/2 inch. On the silver bracelet, an engraved floral pattern dances creating music on your wrist. Made in Scotland c. 1860-1880, the high period of interest in Scottish jewelry...
This sterling silver fancy-link chain from the era of the Titanic (but possibly as late as the Art Deco period – Downton Abbey!), is interesting enough to be worn on its own, or you can could hang a pendant or watch from it. The clasp is stamped “Sterling”. It measures 26”, and the links are ¼” or 4mm wide at the widest point. It weighs 5.6g or 0.19 oz, and is in excellent condition...

Signed by Gerardo Lopez, an accomplished early Taxco maestro whose repousse jewelry is steadily growing in popularity, a big, showy sterling brooch featuring a splendidly ornate bird of paradise. I could hardly exaggerate the attention to detail and flawless finishing in Lopez's work - here the oxidation and the patina developed over time accentuate the sculpturality of the design. Measuring a generous 3 1/4" tall by 2 5/8" wide the brooch weighs 22.7 grams...
