I love vintage Mexican silver Christmas jewelry - and I love the holidays as well! But I am also very excited about this set of festive earrings because the specific design is very very rare - in fact, this is the first poinsettia and holly wreath dangles that I have seen. They measure 2" long and 1 1/4" wide (at their widest) and they are very musical with their little bells. The set weighs 11.4 grams and is signed with maker's initials "CVL" as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO 0925"...

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...

Early and rather rare - in all the years that I have been involved with vintage Mexican silver jewelry I have not seen another one like it - this is a bracelet with a big "wow" factor. Wide, with beautiful cut-out designs, its links are constructed in the shadow-box style which adds a dramatic sense of depth to the bracelet. Beautiful amethyst cabochons, twist-rope wire decoration and a pin closure complete the Deco marvel...

Early, early silver and turquoise set of dangle earrings, the dangle in the shape of an inverted question mark with stylized "cascabeles" hanging off it. I love the dramatic sense of motion in the swirling lines and the way the sea green of the stones underscores it. A spectacular set and a classic example of Mexican folk art. The earrings measure 2" long by 7/8" wide and their combined weight is 11.5 grams...

Beautifully rendered emulations of Margot de Taxco's koi fish earrings, this pair is signed by a maker who is known among collectors of vintage Mexican jewelry for his prowess in the art of repoussage and the high quality of his work. I think the point I am trying to make is amply illustrated by the bold repousse, the dark oxidation in the recesses of the design and the care that went into the finishing touches...

An unsigned beauty from Taxco's early "glorious" days, this clamper bracelet is a celebration of masterful repoussage, beading and oxidized hand-chasing. The sense of movement that emanates from the twisting and twirling scroll-work is powerful and the glow of its repousse semi-spheres and little beads is warm with the love that the bracelet has enjoyed over the years...

Very reminiscent of similar Scandinavian interpretations of floral motifs that were also picked up in the US in the 1940s, a gorgeous, rather rare to find necklace from Mexico's Deco years. I love the layering of the pansy links etched with delicate veins that radiate from the beaded center and the patina time has bestowed over them. Very romantic and definitely unusual when it comes to Mexican design...

Impressive, having the distinct "ethnic" character that characterizes this genre of vintage Mexican jewelry, a set of articulated earrings by Rivera in emulation of Matilde Poulat's jeweled creations. Beading, wire work, amethysts and turquoise set in channels and bezels combine to make this truly regal set. Dating in the pre-1948 period (I believe Rivera's early pieces to be among the best alternatives to Matl's own work) the set is signed with maker's name as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO 925"...

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...

Very substantial yet still discrete and classy this is a Spratling creation dating in the 1940-46 period as indicated by the combination of hallmarks it bears. It is formed by three rows of "puffy", pillow-like repousse links flexibly held together with hidden pins. The fold-over clasp also blends in the design when you have it on. At 76.9 grams the bracelet weighs around the wrist in a warm, familiar way feeling comfortable and not at all overwhelming...

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...

Very well known for their quality holloware Sanborn's was started by two American brothers as a small drugstore in Mexico City and grew to be one of the most important department stores in the country. In 1935 Fred Davis was hired there to supervise the company's antiques and art division and might have also produced some designs for them. Figural cuffs like this one bearing an early Sanborn's signature are not found very often. This is made out of sterling and adorned with the head of Quetzal...

Very good weight, exquisite detail and excellent patina make this zodiac bracelet a true little treasure. Made in the 1950s or 1960s, it bears the Eagle 18 assay mark and a crown hallmark. I have seen this signature before on carefully crafted pieces from that period yet it seems that the specific maker - obviously a master in silversmithing - has not been identified yet. The bracelet is a wearable 7 1/2" long, 1" wide and weighs a good 56.0 grams. It is in very good vintage condition with ab...
