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!

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...

Early and spectacular Mexican Deco bracelet consisting of three curved links with beaded and wirework ornamentation on oxidized silver platforms.

The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7 1/2" (clasped) and it is 2" wide. The jade carvings are approx. 1 3/8" square and at least 1/4" thick...

In the 1940s, the Los Ballesteros taller made several variations of "dimpled dot" bracelets, most of them hinged, and adorned with impressive gems held in raised crown settings. The piece here is possibly the most massive, absolutely breath-taking of the series. I could not exaggerate the powerful presence, the warm patina and the gorgeous, big simulated alexandrite stone that centers it. Definitely a statement bracelet for a lady that does not hide away in the shadows...

I am thrilled to present this small wonder of Matilde Poulat's, an early hair comb with the maestra's signature repousse and bezel set jewels. In this case, the stones are one amethyst and two faux turquoise cabs positioned in a pyramid shape right at the comb's center. Gorgeous patina, no flaws noted, with the actual plastic comb in very good shape (I believe also original to the piece), this is a treasure to be displayed and enjoyed...

Strong presence with its unusual square face and richly colored stones make this vintage Deco Matl-esque ring a feast for the eyes; both those of the beholder as well as those of the bearer. Adorned with a pyramid-cut amethyst and channel-set coral and turquoise cabs its shank is embellished with the familiar wirework and twist-rope accents. Deep oxidation helps bring the color of the stones out and creates the character of this piece...

Fantastic Antonio Pineda silver and black onyx cross pendant necklace - I particularly love this piece for its soft black velvet "chain" which allows it to literally hug the neck... Exquisite combination of curved and angular motifs with Antonio's amazing ability to create substantial yet absolutely not overwhelming jewelry! This is a true gem that transcends the realm of the religious to become a coveted piece of adornment. The necklace is in beautiful vintage condition with only the tini...

A mystery bracelet to me because I just cannot seem to decipher the signature this is a spectacular, quite substantial clamper in a rarely found size for medium to smaller wrists. Very reminiscent of a Margot de Taxco design and bearing hallmarks that make me think its maker must have had some association with her or with the Los Castillo taller the bracelet has exceptionally strong lines and fantastic workmanship. With an inner circumference of 6 3/4" it is 1 1/4" wide while the impressive...
