Magnificent and quite rare to find, Sigi Pineda's design 241 is the epitome of modernist elegance and boasts reversible stones - so in actuality, you have two pieces in one! Featuring intense oxidation in the recessed areas which almost looks like cold enamel, the necklace and earrings set can be worn to display either the golden sheen obsidian cabs or the chrysocolla stones...

Spectacular 1950s Mexican silver repousse necklace in the style developed by Margot de Taxco and the Los Castillo, this piece combines motifs already familiar to the seasoned collector in a fresh, all-new way. Signed by a maestro who, though listed, still remains unidentified, the necklace is carefully worked and immaculately finished with confident repoussage, crisp lines and a strong sense of motion...

Until well into the 20th c. conducting one's own archaelogical dig was not prohibited in Mexico - both Spratling and Davis are known to have engaged in personal digs and their collections were frequently enriched by the fruits of those excavations. Quite often ancient, pre-Colombian beads as well as small stone artifacts that surfaced here and there were incorporated in pieces of jewelry silversmiths made in the first decades of Mexico's Silver Renaissance...

Iconic Abraham Paz silver and black onyx bracelet in the "shields" design, this is not an easy to find piece and I am thrilled to be offering it here. The epitome of Mexican Deco, Paz's creations appeared also with Fred Davis's hallmarks but the example at hand bears Paz's own signature. The bracelet measures 7 1/4" long (wearable; actual length is 7 1/2") by 1 1/8" wide and weighs 43.2 grams...

Talented, eccentric and not very prolific (at least where his Mexican pieces are concerned) Hubert Harmon spent a few years in Taxco in the 1940s and created some of the most beautiful, difficult to find examples of Taxco design. The repousse silver snakes and fish belt buckle at hand is a known Harmon creation yet doesn't bear his signature so I am offering it here as an unsigned piece and this is reflected in its pricing...

There is almost no information about maestro M. Velazquez other than his hallmarks which put him right at the opening decades of Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance. Yet I have watched his jewelry rise in popularity over the last few years not only because of its inherent quality but also because they offers an excellent alternative to Matilde Poulat's pieces as they become scarcer and almost prohibitively expensive for most of us...

One of Salvador Teran’s signature designs, the Archer makes for a dramatic, show-stopping bracelet. Mod minimalism, shadowbox construction and beautifully aged heavy gauge silver combine in the example at hand. Having a 6 1/2″ inner circumference (clasped; perfect for smaller to medium wrists) the bracelet varies in width between 1 1/2″ and 5/16″ and weighs 39.8 grams. It is signed with maker’s signature in script as shown as well as “STERLING MEXICO” and des...

An early bracelet by Hector Aguilar, its design presaging in a way his massive "bullet" piece, this is so comfortable and easy to wear! The "bullet" shaped hidden hinges allow it to conform to your every move - you will love the way it hugs the wrist. This is also a bracelet you can wear any time, anywhere - Aguilar's jewelry is magnificent but many of his creations you cannot just don and get out the door.....

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...

Early Deco Mexican silver and amethyst necklace very much in Matilde Poulat’s style, this is a piece that combines fleshy, earthy repoussage with a gorgeously colored stone. The three-part central section is articulated with hidden hinges, its construction allowing it to sit perfectly on the neckline and feel very comfortable as well. The necklace is 15 1/2″ long (wearable; actual length is approx...

The second Erika Hult de Corral bracelet currently in my inventory (please look for item no 1189406 as well), this piece is absolutely fabulous. Quite substantial yet still comfortable to wear, its mod sterling links are studded with green, mossy agates. The bracelet feels divine around the wrist and as rare as Ric bracelets are, the specific design is even more difficult to come upon. With an inner circumference of 6 5/8" (clasped), it is perfect for smaller to medium wrists...

Simply marked with Eagle 3 assay number alongside "TAXCO MEXICO 925" a vintage mod necklace in emulation of Antonio Pineda's similar design combining sterling with chunky oval chrysoprase gems. Like stylized leaves or waves, the repousse setting tenderly hugs the stones that are otherwise held in a raised sterling frame. The waves are then continued in the chain, more elongated this time. Fantastic patina and the semi-translucence of the stones combined with the architecturality of the des...

A contemporary of Matilde Poulat’s, Dominguez is among the early maestros whose emulations of Matl pieces I consider excellent alternatives to the Grande Dame’s original work. Very carefully crafted and meticulously finished, with its channel-set turquoise cabs ranging from pale blues and greens to deeper shades of the two colors this is a classic Mexico City piece and an eye-catching one at that. I love the darkness of the amethysts – the stones are not foiled here and the closed back set...

Massive vintage Rachel Gera modernist ring wrought in silver and adorned with polished gems - I can recognize rock crystal and garnet but am not sure as to the other two. Dramatically contorted the stems holding the stones complement the brutalist geometry of the shank's texture. Wildly gorgeous the ring is a sz 7 with its face being approx. 1" by 1 1/4"; when worn, it rises 5/8" off finger and weighs 20.7 grams. Marked with maker's signature "GERA" as well as "ISRAEL" and "925", it dates in th...

A retailer in Cuernavaca, according to Bille Hougart, Doris probably commissioned work from several maestros yet jewelry bearing their signature does not surface very often. But when it does, it is usually spectacular - like the cuff presented here. Co-signed "Corpus Artisans", its repousse is immaculately executed; dramatic, perfectly finished and beautifully oxidized. I find the combination of fern, floral and stylized fleur-de-lis motifs quite successful and cannot get over the patina the bra...

Very much in the early style of Fred Davis, a vintage Deco Taxco necklace wrought in almost pure, 980 silver. This is a classy, substantial piece with its shield form links made out of silver sheet with good thickness and adorned with applied repousse semi-spheres, etching and bezel set amethyst cabochons. A true Mexican beauty, 16 1/4" long (wearable; easily lengthened with the addition of a sterling extension which I can provide upon request) by 1" wide, weighing a good 95.6 grams. Simply mar...

Slick, modernist Sigi Pineda sterling silver and pearls cuff bracelet, the two pearls lifted above their oxidized background and showcased in a shadow-box asymmetrical opening. This is Sigi at one of his best moments, I believe, the choice of materials a favorite of mine and a combination that Antonio Pineda also benefited from during his career. The cuff has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (including the 1 3/8" gap) and its width reaches 1 1/16" at center front. It is signed with Sigi's sig...

I have had this repousse leaves design before in necklaces and bracelets yet this is my first piece signed by its originators, the Los Castillo taller. I just cannot get over the fleshiness of the repoussage and the fantastic way the silver glistens and darkens as the eye proceeds from the raised surfaces to the deeper recesses in the veins of each leaf. Simplicity in all its elegance yet definitely not simplistic at all! The necklace is a choker size measuring a wearable 15" long. It is 5/8" wi...
