Truly magnificent and breathtaking Gerardo Lopez sterling necklace and bracelet set. Made in Taxco circa 1960's, the massive Art Nouveau style necklace shows Gerardo's mastery of dimension and design, similar to the best of Los Castillo and Margot de Taxco. The huge necklace has a wearable length of about 16 1/2 inches. The center medallion is 5 3/4 inches wide x 2 1/2 inches deep. The sides and rear are about 5/8 wide. Marked Lopez, Sterling Taxco, with eagle 26. The only flaw is that the original clasp has been replaced by a spring ring clasp. A silversmith can easily add a more period style hook clasp if desired. The matching cuff bracelet is about 7 inches around the inside. It is oval shaped about 2 1/2 x 2 inside, with a tight spring. Marked Sterling, 925 over the oval mark of Lopez,Taxco,Hencho en Mexico. The bracelet has a slightly darker patina than the necklace.
