Pictured in Penny Morril's "Silver Masters of Mexico" on p. 136, this early Hector Aguilar bracelet is one of his "pillow" link designs, wrought here in sterling silver. Dating around 1945, it already employs the hidden hinge technique that Aguilar became known for, with the hinges in our case having been shaped in a way that anticipates the maestro's later massive "bullet" bracelet...

Generous in size and studded with channel and bezel set stones, this is a glorious Matilde Poulat cross whether you wear it as an expression of your spirituality or as a work of art. Matl's signature wirework and beading combined with the patina the pendant has developed over time make for a strong, eye-catching presence. The hand-wrought chain that it comes with is Mexican as well and of the same period (yet not a Matl piece) and I believe it complements it in the best possible way...

Signed by a still unidentified maestro who must have worked for the Los Castillo and Margot de Taxco, a stunning repousse pectoral in sterling, perfectly executed and glowing warmly with the soft patina of well-aged silver. This is a generous in weight yet very comfortable to wear example of the genre and its wearable length is such as to guarantee a perfect fit for most of us...

Impressive and quite generous in weight while at the same time not easy to find, the Carmen Beckmann necklace presented here is wrought in sterling and has flat-cut oval amethyst stones adorning its stylized foliate links. Based on design and construction, I tend to believe that this is an early example of Beckmann's work and it is exquisite. The necklace has a wearable length of 16 1/2" (once clasped, it becomes a little roomier at 16 3/4") and its width is 1" (at its widest)...

Margot de Taxco's des. no 5120, the repousse "wings with beading" provides the perfect set for any occasion requiring classic elegance that will not overwhelm. Characterized by the unsurpassed attention to detail that Margot's jewelry is known for, the necklace and earrings at hand have acquired a fantastic patina over the years that deepens the design's recesses and renders it beguilingly fleshy...

Sculptural Deco Mexican silver repousse necklace and earrings set in a design created by Margot de Taxco this demi is signed by its maker yet the hallmarks are double-stamped and it’s impossible for me to read the name. Yet even so once cannot help but notice the perfect execution in the silver work, the voluptuousness of the repousse surfaces and the warm patina that has developed over time...

Based on an Antonio Pineda design and simply marked with Eagle 3 assay mark (which Antonio also used), a modernist sterling silver and chrysoprase necklace and bracelet set from Taxco's middle period, around 1960. I believe the demi was probably made in Antonio's taller by one of his maestros after hours and its quality and level of craftsmanship bespeak its creators mastery over his art...

A true show-stopper and a rather rare piece bearing the signature of Doris, this cuff bracelet has the quality of those pieces that become heirlooms, bequeathed from mother to daughter for generations. An American from Dallas trained in woodworking, textile making and silversmithing, Doris opened her workshop in Mexico in the mid-1940s and commissioned designs by the most accomplished silversmiths...

Inspired by Margot de Taxco and the Los Castillo "swan" parures, an anonymous Mexican silver repousse demi comprised by necklace and bracelet in this most favorite classic Deco motif. Nicely executed in silver sheet of medium thickness that allows the set to make its presence felt when you have it on, both pieces have gorgeous patina and are a pleasure to wear and to behold...

An imaginative Taxco maestro whose jewelry is steadily growing in appreciation among collectors in the last few years, Gerardo Lopez is known for his repousse pectorals and clampers. Yet to find a cuff bracelet bearing his signature is a rare occurrence and I am thrilled to be presenting here this stunning hand-hammered example. Having a distinct Arts-and-Crafts quality, the cuff is wide and adorned with teardrop bezel-set azur malachite stones separated by voluminous "dimpled dot" appliques...

Classically elegant with just that tad of playfulness that makes a demi a pleasure to wear and to behold, this set of necklace and earrings by Margot de Taxco features luscious teardrop dangles and carefully wrought beading. Longer than most similar pieces from the period, the necklace is so comfortable and behaves perfectly when you have it on while the earrings can hold their own even if you decide they will be your only adornment for the evening...

Resting on the powerful visual effect of its angularity and the contrast between oxidized and warmly glowing silver, a signed Ed Wiener cuff bracelet in a stylized wave design. This is actually a published piece (see Milton W. Brown and Blanche R. Brown, Jewelry by Ed Wiener, p. 69) and one of the best modernist cuffs I have seen...

Extra long vintage Deco Italian silver necklace in the Peruzzi and Coppini Bros style, this is often referred to as the "Roma" design though I believe that the figural links in it are symbols of several Italian cities including the capital. A spectacular piece and quite rare to find in this generous length, it is in excellent vintage condition and can be worn single, double or even triple stand. It measures 60 7/8" long and weighs 80.1 grams. It is not marked for maker (not even the Peruzzi Bro...

Early Italian Deco "cimaruta" necklace, this is a beautiful piece with a large pendant and a chain of cast floral links very much in the style of the Peruzzi and Copping Bros.. An ancient charm to protect against the evil eye, the "cimaruta" is associated with Southern Italy and even though antique examples of it are very rare to find, every so often a piece from the opening decades of the 20th c. like the one presented here becomes available. With the pendant measuring 2 7/8" tall (without the...

Designed for David Andersen by Bjorn Sigurd Ostern a vintage 1960s sterling silver and enamel pendant necklace with an original Andersen neck ring. This design is referred to as "Thor's Hammer" and in our case it comes in stunning shades of blue. I love the hand-hammered finish of the torque and the set's slick elegance. The pendant is just shy of 2" tall by 1 7/16" wide while the neck ring has an inner circumference of 15 5/8" (including the 7/8" gap; yet relatively adjustable). The set weigh...

Stupendous - literally - Francisco Rivera for Emma bracelet in an "archeological" design, this is a cuff fit for a warrior princess! Hefty, meticulously worked and perfectly finished, it exudes confidence and represents the epitome of the "statement" bracelet. It is tapered so as to better fit the lower arm / wrist and its inner circumference at mid-height is 6 1/2" (including the 1 1/4" gap; I have a 5 3/4" wrist and I can wear it pushed 1 3/4" above the wrist bone). The cuff's height reach...

Absolutely breath-taking with its huge table-cut color-change sapphire (usually referred to as alexandrite within the field of vintage Mexican jewelry) this Carmen Beckmann ring is a real treat for the dedicated collector. The stone, which like real alexandrites changes color according to light conditions, is held in a high, terraced setting with openings that maximize the effect of light and bestow it a regal presence. Currently a sz 6.75-7 it is resizable; its face is 1 3/8" by 3/4" and rises...
