Very unique with its blue background instead of the usual black, an antique pietra dura combination pin/brooch and pendant set in 18k solid gold. The brooch features a lovely yellow rose that reflects the warmth of the old gold frame which is itself comprised of shell and scrolled motifs. The brooch is 2" tall by 1 5/8" wide while the inlaid medallion is 1 3/8" by 1 1/8" viewable...

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...

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...

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...

Based on the dramatic contrast of highly polished silver against dark, oxidized backgrounds, Sigi's jewelry is eye-catching without having to be burdensomely elaborate. The necklace at hand illustrates, I believe, my assertion in the best possible way. Gorgeous, a pleasure to wear and to behold, and a true Tasco (sic) modernist treasure. It measures just shy of 16" long (wearable) with the central mirrored part of it being 4" wide and 1" tall (at its tallest); the width of the chain itself is 5/...

Classic early Deco Mexican silver repousse bracelet, its two hinged parts consisting of several rows of repousse semi-spheres dotted with bezel-set amethyst cabochons. This is an iconic design and it comes in several widths - the rarity in the example presented here is that in addition to the small stones, there is a series of three big amethysts applied on the vertical that dissects the front "wing" in two. The bracelet measures 6 3/4" in inner circumference (clasped) by 1 3/4" wide and weigh...

Impressive and early Matilde Poulat ring in a repousse serpent design that coils around a scrumptious amethyst cabochon. Fantastic patina and Matl's easily recognizable workmanship in combination with the quite generous in size face make for a stunning piece. Currently a sz 8 the ring can be easily resized by a good jeweler. Its face is 1 3/8" by approx. 1" and it weighs 11.6 grams. Profusely marked with applied and early raised letter marks "STERLING", "MEXICO" and "MATL", with the "L" partial...
