Early Los Castillo Mexican silver repousse set of earrings, this is a stunning pair, big, bold and definitely eye-catching! I find the predominance of circles and spheres quite alluring and appreciate the way the patina accentuating the design's recesses has added to the set's architecturality. Generously 2 1/4" long by 1 3/4" wide, they weigh 24.1 grams (for the set) and are hallmarked with maker's signature as shown as well as "TAXCO 925", "MADE IN MEXICO STERLING", des...

A vintage Margot de Taxco Mexican silver earrings set with architectural swirls and beading making up the almost Spanish Colonial dangles. I love the specific design which does not come up often - I have only had it once in the past and have been looking for it ever since. Strong presence without overwhelming size and the amazing combination of the sphere with the half-moon make for a truly unique pair. Measuring 1 1/4" long by 1" wide (at their widest) they weigh 12.3 grams (for the set)...

A vintage set of sterling silver bracelets from Taxco's middle period, these two are only marked with Eagle 17 yet they are one of the nicest pair of bangles I have seen. I will almost dare to suggest theirs is a stylized snake design because of the scale-like texture of the bracelet. Very good craftsmanship and silver wire of good thickness along with fantastic patina draw the eye while the pair's musicality appeals to the ears...

Big, beautifully worked and warmly patinated early Mexican silver brooch in the shape of the Quetzal, the Maya sacred bird and one of the two creatures combined in the figure of Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent. This is the second time I have had a brooch in this design and I am equally impressed now by it as I was when I first came upon it...

Often referred to as the "Aztec Rose", the design adorning this vintage Sanborn's cuff bracelet is classic both for the genre and the period. Carefully executed, its repousse stands out against a stippled and oxidized background while the undulating upper and lower perimeter of the bracelet ties in nicely with its floral motif. With an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (including the 1" gap), the cuff's width varies between 1 5/8" at center front and approx. 1/2" at either end...

Hugest ever - literally! - FarFan earrings I have seen, can you believe this set? I am stunned by the proportions, the "elaborately" naive design and execution, the beautiful stones. Definitely a pair for the female who does not shy away from attention and ... stunning! They measure 3 3/16" long by 1 15/16" wide and weigh 25.6 grams (for the set). Signed with maker's logo as shown as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO D.F. 925" this seems to be a pre-1948 set...

Thick silver of high purity with deeply chased and oxidized waves and swirls characterizes this early Los Castillo cuff bracelet wrought in a 980 alloy. One of my favorite cuff designs, I love its heft, the comfortable way it wears and the fantastic patina it has developed over its long life.With an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (including the 1 1/16" gap; not adjustable due to the thickness of the silver) it is 3/4" wide (at its widest) and weighs 40.7 grams...

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...

Early Mexican Deco repousse cuff bracelet in a style very characteristic of Mexico City and Maciel, this is a medium width piece with florals all around the band against a stippled background. Wrought out of 900 silver that usually indicates an earlier date, possibly even the 1920s, it has an inner circumference of 7 1/4" (including the 7/8" gap) yet is relatively adjustable (please exert caution, if trying to adjust it). Its width is 15/16" and it weighs 24.9 grams...

Fabulous Taxco set of two bangle bracelets from the early and middle periods of Mexico’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance, this pair is comprised of one Etruscan style piece and a more difficult to find example with elaborate florals in thick relief. The two are stunning together and they would look gorgeous worn over a long black sleeve. Having an inner circumference of 8", they are 5/16″ wide and weigh a generous 44.1 grams (for the set)...

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. It weighs 10.5 grams and is s...

One of the few known female Taxco silversmiths and designers and a modernist at that, Erika Hult de Corral's work has a slick elegance and a quality that justifies the desirability her creations enjoy. The set of "pagoda" dangle earrings I am presenting here is both difficult to find and a pleasure to wear and to behold. They are just shy of 1 7/8" long by 3/4" wide (at their widest) and weigh 14.0 grams (for the set). Marked with maker's signature "Ric" in script as well as Eagle 3 assay mark...

Early Deco Flli Peruzzi, Florence silver cuff bracelet wrought in .800 silver (the sterling standard was adopted in Italy in 1934) in a classic Italian Renaissance Revival design for which the company is known. Beautifully etched and accented with beading its florals have depth and the warm patina that has developed over the years intensifies the cuff’s sense of depth and drama. Elegant without being fussy the cuff has a 6 5/8″ inner circumference (including the 7/8″ gap; adjustab...

You will love the patina on this piece; it is just what you want to see on a well-cared for bracelet from the opening decades of Taxco's 20th c. revival. A Margot de Taxco / Los Castillo design, it combines repousse semi-spheres with stylized feather motifs yet this example is not signed. I suspect, however, that it might be an Antonio Reina creation. The bracelet is 6 7/8" long (wearable; actual length is just about 7 1/2" but you need some allowance to clasp it) by 1 5/8" wide and weighs 46...

Not to rush the seasons yet vintage Mexican Christmas jewelry is so closely related to the holiday period that I have to start early! And you will not find a more outrageously festive set of holly and bells earrings than this FarFan example. Measuring just shy of 2" square (including the bells), the set weighs 19.1 grams and is signed with maker's name as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO D.F. 925". It dates in the pre-1948 period and is in excellent vintage condition....

Possibly a copy of a pre-Colombian seal and definitely inspired by Mexico's ancient motifs, a bolo tie from the 1950s-60s period bearing the signature of Emma Melendez. Beautifully hand-crafted tips and its original, textured black cording add to the bolo's appeal. Easily worn by either a man or a woman, its overall length is 34 3/4" while the medallion measures 1 1/8" by 1 3/8". Signed with Emma's name in capitals and bearing Eagle 3 assay mark as shown. In excellent vintage condition....

Vintage 1950s Miguel Martinez Mexican silver and purple sapphire dangle earrings, this set is a real stunner both in size as well as in the complexity of its design and construction. Stylized articulated heart and foliate motifs accented by the changing color of the faceted gems attract the eye and reflect the light in myriads of different ways. Each earring is 3 1/8″ long (just shy of it!) by 1 7/16″ wide and the set weighs 22.1 grams. It is signed with Miguel’s signature in scr...
