The warmed turquoise and it's 1.5in. height including the ornamental rings make an outstanding example of vintage Mexican silver. On the back you can see the hand hammered marks and it is marked 980 sterling and Taxco was cut off. It is silky soft to the hand and has a dark natural patina. It fits comfortably with a 16in. length. There are no dents or damage to this treasure and it is collector quality. Simply fabulous, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
