All pieces are in excellent condition with hallmarks dating it to the 1940's. It is 940 silver.
This early bracelet by silver designer, Hector Aguilar, dates to the 1940's. It is unusual for the Mexican silversmiths to have incorporated turquoise in their work. The bracelet measures 3/4" wide and 6 1/2" in wearable length. Condition is very good; one of the stones has fissures that may have been natural to the stone rather than cracks.
Textured links surround irregularly shaped stones in this 35" long necklace. Three links on the end allow the length to be modified by an inch. It can be worn equally well singly or doubled. It is made of 22 karat gold with tourmaline, amethyst, garnet, citrine and blue topaz. The links have two different textures. It is a versatile, beautiful and unusual necklace.

Made with post backs but could easily be converted to clips.
