Heavy, imposing, an undisputed beauty, this vintage sterling silver Alfredo Villasana lariat necklace with matching earrings represents the highest quality you can get in this genre. Thick rope and big tassels with luscious fringe can be worn with or without the special clip that comes with the lariat in a variety of configurations. Yet it is the presence of the matching earrings that makes this demi rare and irresistible...

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...

Margot de Taxco's des. no 5120, the repousse "wings with beading" provides the perfect set for any occasion requiring classic elegance that will not overwhelm. Characterized by the unsurpassed attention to detail that Margot's jewelry is known for, the necklace and earrings at hand have acquired a fantastic patina over the years that deepens the design's recesses and renders it beguilingly fleshy...

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...

Signed by a still unidentified maestro who must have worked for the Los Castillo and Margot de Taxco, a stunning repousse pectoral in sterling, perfectly executed and glowing warmly with the soft patina of well-aged silver. This is a generous in weight yet very comfortable to wear example of the genre and its wearable length is such as to guarantee a perfect fit for most of us...

Bold repousse, deeply oxidized recesses and a sculptural design to begin with combine in this stunning Mexican Deco sterling silver demi comprised of a necklace and matching bracelet. I could never exaggerate the craftsmanship and fleshiness of the repoussage - nor could I even come close to describing the warm, glowing patina the set has developed over its long life...

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...

Based on an Antonio Pineda design and simply marked with Eagle 3 assay mark (which Antonio also used), a modernist sterling silver and chrysoprase necklace and bracelet set from Taxco's middle period, around 1960. I believe the demi was probably made in Antonio's taller by one of his maestros after hours and its quality and level of craftsmanship bespeak its creators mastery over his art...

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...

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...

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...

Gorgeous Enrique Ledesma Taxco modernist necklace seamlessly marrying sterling silver with azurite in the maestro's signature style. The stone is rich in green hues and the necklace looks perfect accompanied by its matching bracelet with which it is pictured in the first photo (also available on this site). Quite often Ledesma's necklaces are relatively short but the example at hand has a custom-made extender that adds valuable length to it making it comfortable for most of us. The extension is ...

A true show-stopper and a rather rare piece bearing the signature of Doris, this cuff bracelet has the quality of those pieces that become heirlooms, bequeathed from mother to daughter for generations. An American from Dallas trained in woodworking, textile making and silversmithing, Doris opened her workshop in Mexico in the mid-1940s and commissioned designs by the most accomplished silversmiths. The cuff at hand is a celebration of its maker's prowess in the art of repoussage and classic in i...

Thick amethyst bars held in substantial sterling oval links that allow for maximum light to showcase the stones' beauty impart a distinct "industrial" feel to this Cheo necklace and bracelet set that is obviously emulating Antonio Pineda's design. Modernism at one of its best less-is-more moments; I would even dare say that the demi at hand touches upon brutalist aesthetics. The necklace measures 16 7/8" long (wearable) by 9/16" wide and weighs 96.2 grams. The bracelet is approx. 7 7/8" long a...

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 7 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.

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. A great example of wearable art, the bracelet has an inner circumference of 6 3 /8″ (including the 1 1/8″ gap) while its width varies between 7/8″ ...

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...
