Though not as prolific in jewelry making as some of his contemporary Taxco maestros (Parra is known for his high quality holloware), Parra's repousse pieces can be down right stupendous. I have had the bracelet at hand with amethyst stones before yet I feel the combination of silver and black onyx is the epitome of Deco elegance. My appreciation of the highly complex design I will leave to the photos to express. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (clasped)...

Big and with a distinct less-is-more attitude that nevertheless stays within the more traditional confounds of Mexican jewelry design, a rare to find Los Castillo ring adorned with a chunky turquoise. I love the greenish hue of the cab and its towering cut and I also appreciate the fact that this is an adjustable ring. Currently a sz 9.5, it can be made larger, if needed. Its face is approx. 7/8" by 5/8" and when worn, the ring rises just shy of 1/2" off the finger...

Stunning sterling by pass ring from the middle period of Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance in the form of Quetzalcoatl, the Mesoamerican divine Feathered Serpent, this is a true stunner and a design I am always looking for! Crisp lines, perfect finishing and even a sense of depth, all in such a tiny little space bespeak the mastery of the ring's maker. Currently a sz 7.75 (yet adjustable, upwards mostly) its face is 1 3/8" tall by approx. 7/8" wide and it weighs 7.0 grams...

I am thrilled to have come upon this rare example of Egyptian Revival jewelry - I will date it in the 1920s but I suspect it might actually be earlier, from the late Victorian or Edwardian periods. Wrought in the shape of a coiled cobra, it can be worn as a bracelet but if your body type is such, you can wear it as an arm band as well. Niello decoration denotes the snake's stylized face and was used to paint scenes of the Nile with barges and fishermen going about their daily lives...

Breath-taking both in its bold design but also because of its generous size, a hand-carved Mexican jade mask pendant paired with a chain of the same origin and vintage. This is an absolutely fabulous piece of jewelry - not for the faint of heart and definitely for the girl who loves intense "ethnic" flair in her life. The pendant measures 3 7/8" tall by 1 1/4" wide while the chain itself is 28" long...

Steeped in Mexico's rich cultural past, vintage silver Quetzalcoatl jewelry are stunning and one of my favorite sub-genres in the Taxco field. I have seen many variations of the divine Feathered Serpent, some times in repousse and others carved and overlaid like here...

Maciel repousse cuff bracelets are among the most sought after early Mexican jewelry forms and with good reason too. Their classic floral designs executed in bold relief defy age and the whims of fashion and the variety of widths and motifs is quite impressive. I love the cut-out variations, like the one presented here, especially for the summer when heat and humidity call for lighter, more comfortable accessories...

Most probably crafted by an anonymous maestro who spent time working for the Los Castillo and/or Margot de Taxco, an early Mexican silver repousse necklace in a style associated with both talleres. Though lighter than its original counterparts, this is nevertheless a very carefully made piece with riveted links, perfectly executed repoussage and bespeaks its maker's mastery over the art of silversmithing...

Bearing the initials of a still unidentified maestro whose repousse clamper bracelets are avidly sought after for their exquisite craftsmanship and beautiful design the clamper at hand is an iconic Taxco piece. Stark contrast between the glowing raised surfaces and the dark recesses on the two "wings" as well as the repousse lip that denotes the bracelet's perimeter make for an eye-catching, impressive clamper...

An early 20th c. silver filigree ring of Chinese provenance, I believe, this piece is impressive and rather colorful with its bezel set gems. The large faceted stone at the center tests in the sapphire/topaz area on my Presidium gem tester - I cannot say whether natural or synthetic yet the color is gorgeous. There are also amethysts and tiger's eye cabs ...

A very intriguing combination pin/pendant necklace wrought in 980 silver and adorned with scrumptious amethysts and pearls. The design reminds me of Margot's hand but it's signed by a maker who, though listed, remains unidentified. Anonymity or not though, this is a spectacular, substantial piece and you can wear it either as a necklace or dis-attach the pendant to enjoy it as a brooch. Measuring 23 5/8" long (wearable) the chain enjoys the pendant's additional 3 5/8" drop. The pin/brooch itse...

Sigi Pineda rings don't come up very often and I am very happy to present here an example out of his "boomerang" line. Fashioned in the so-called by pass style, this is a slick, mod piece, its two wings adorned with bezel set turquoise cabs. Fantastic patina and excellent vintage condition make this an absolute must-have for collectors of Mexican jewelry and lovers of mod design alike. Relatively adjustable (upwards, I would suggest), the ring is now a sz 6 and its face measures just above 1" by...

One of my favorite Matilde Poulat designs, the "snake" necklace is a celebration of artistry and hand-wrought quality. Formed by a multitude of individually worked sterling scales that were then connected together into a flexible, easy to wear piece, this necklace boasts a figural clasp adorned with bezel- and channel-set turquoise. Exquisite patina and beautiful stones in an age-defying creation. The necklace measures 15 1/4" long (wearable) by 5/8" wide (at the snake's body) while the clasp c...

Matching the necklace by the same maker that is also currently available in my inventory (please look for item no 1250612, this mod sterling and amethyst bracelet is based on a Sigi Pineda design and signed with initials ERE and Eagle 3 assay mark. Very well made, with attention to detail (just note the hidden clasp that disappears when you have the bracelet on) and having developed a warmly glowing patina over the years, this is an easy piece to wear either alone or in combination with similar ...

Signed by a maker whose initials can also be found on Erika Hult de Corral's jewelry, this is a slick, mod silver and amethyst necklace in an almost biomorphic design based, I believe, on a Sigi Pineda creation. Very well made, with good weight to it but still not overwhelmingly heavy - thus perfect for the hotter days of summer - its stones are foiled, I think, and their color variation and inclusions visually intriguing. The necklace measures 16" long (wearable) by 11/16" wide and weighs 61.2 ...
