Often referred to as the "Spratling of Peru", Graziella Laffi needs no introduction to the knowledgeable collector of vintage Peruvian silver jewelry. Inspired by the country's rich pre-Colombian heritage which she interpreted in a mod, timeless way, Laffi's pieces are sought-after and just a pleasure to have and behold. The hand-hammered necklace at hand, oxidized and endearingly assymetrical, has four figural, sculptural charms hanging off it...

Mod 1960s Uno A Erre bracelet wrought in .800 silver and decorated with golden yellow and turquoise champleve enamel. This is a colorful, very easy and comfortable to wear piece - it feels like silk around the wrist and is certainly unusual in its combination of geometric shapes. With an inner circumference of 7 1/2" (clasped) the bracelet is 3/4" wide and weighs 31.0 grams. It is fully singed "800" as well as "1 AR" and dates in the 1960s...

Sweet set of vintage Ed Levin sterling silver and pearl earrings with beautiful oxidation in the concave silver housing that surrounds the gems. An early Levin pair from his initial studio period, when the designer loved to suspend pearls or other precious stones from silver wire, very classy and elegant. The earrings measure 5/8" in diameter with the fresh-water pearls being 3/16" in diameter. The set weighs 5.7 grams and it is signed "LEVIN" and "STERLING"...

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...

Based, I believe, on a Hector Aguilar creation a gorgeous necklace with links in a stylized cactus flower design made by one of my favorite "less celebrated" makers who signs his work with initials A and E in a heart-shaped M. This is a masterfully made necklace with very good weight and it sits like a dream around the neck. Not to overdo it but its patina is also to die for. The necklace measures 16 1/2" long (wearable) by just over 7/8" wide and weighs 76.9 grams...

Signed by "AEM" or "AE Heart" because of the heart-shaped "M" that surrounds initials "AE" this is the perfect bracelet for a Davis lover with a small wrist! Very well executed in sterling and black onyx, the iconic "shield and dome" design is classy and quintessentially Mexican Deco. This piece measures a wearable 6 1/4" long (actual length is 6 7/8" but due to its large links it wouldn't fit a wrist bigger than 5 3/4"). Its width is 1 1/8" and it weighs 52.6 grams...

A superb example by my favorite "heart" artist, again inspired by Margot de Taxco's beloved koi fish designs this is a pair of earrings worthy of the best collection! One cannot fail to admire the confident, pronounced repoussage and the crispness in detail and finishing - both qualities that characterize the work of only the best maestros...

One of my favorite designs of the so-called "archaeological" genre, I have seen similar pieces bearing Victoria's signature but this one is made by an artist who signs his name with initials "AE" in a heart-shaped "M". Though we don't know much about the specific maker, we do know that his work was appreciated enough by his colleagues that his signature can be found on jewelry by Rancho Alegre and Estela Popowski...

Alfredo Villasana is one of my favorite "less celebrated" early Taxco maestros. Though all of his work is beautiful, he did have some exceptional moments and the bracelet presented here is, I believe, a great example. Heavy shield-shaped sterling links with oxidation and beading connect to floral rondelles, each one holding a big simulated alexandrite (color-change corundum, in fact) in substantial crown settings...

Vintage assembled set of Antonio Pineda bracelets in a mod, minimalist design that features deeply carved semi-spheres out of each bangle's perimeter, with the empty areas oxidized to add drama to an otherwise simple form. I am very partial to sets of bangles and this pair wears comfortably with its discrete musicality reminding you of its presence. The bangles have an inner circumference of 8" and their width is 1/4"...

A celebrated book piece Antonio Pineda's "crescent" design is a veritable feast for the eyes in its less-is-more combination of high purity silver and glistening black onyx. Undoubtedly a classic both when it comes to vintage Mexican modernist jewelry but also for Antonio collectors, the necklace's presence is powerful and attracts the eye in a way difficult to resist. The version presented here is my favorite - the links between the individual crescents are topped with a repousse semi-sphere...

A stunning Antonio Pineda modernist hinged bracelet, quite substantial but at the same time as minimalist as possible, I have sold a similar one in the past and I am thrilled to be offering another example here today. Having an inner circumference of 6 3/4" the bracelet is 1 1/16" wide and impressively thick. It weighs 134.4grams yet it wears comfortably and is fully signed with Antonio's crown mark, Eagle 17, des...

Matching the set of chubby hoop earrings also available in my inventory (please look for item no 1112606) this is a stunning Antonio Pineda modernist hinged bracelet. Very substantial but at the same time as minimalist as possible, a piece that hugs the wrist in an intimate, warm way. Measuring just shy of 7" in inner circumference, the bracelet is 1 1/8" wide and its thickness reaches 1/2". It weighs 142.1 grams yet it wears comfortably and is fully signed with Antonio's crown mark, a very bad...

I love Antonio crosses - most of the times, they look more like a work of abstract art than a symbol of one's spirituality. And the silver, pearl and (I believe) zoisite or chrysoprase pendant here is definitely a good example of that. Simply gorgeous, with fantastic patina and the most adorable pearls, it catches the eye with its sense of motion and the green gem at its center. I have paired it with a sterling chain by Miguel Martinez that provides a great match both in vintage as well as weigh...

Vintage Antonio Pineda pair of mod earrings in his so-called "thumbprint" design, this is the perfect gift to complement the bracelet or necklace you already have. Classic Antonio, substantial in presence, with excellent patina - just how you want them to look. Each earring measures 3/4" tall by 5/8" wide and 7/16" deep (at their deepest). The set's weight is 18.3 grams and it is fully signed as shown with Antonio's crown, "970", "HECHO EN MEXICO" and Eagle 58 assay mark. In excellent vintage co...

Rarely seen Antonio Pineda silver vermeil band ring, this is the dream piece for those of us who love Mexican silver yet like a touch of gold from time to time as well! I want to call this a "pre-Colombian key" motif and find its architectural quality very appealing. The gold wash has mellowed over time and the dark recesses in the design look dramatic against it. The ring is a size 6 (not resizable due to the continuous band of decoration) and just shy of 1/2" wide. It weighs 9.0 grams and is s...

A vintage Antonio Pineda tie clip out of the designer's mod line that combined oxidized silver with pearls. Very slick, understatedly elegant and in excellent condition with an obligingly tight spring. The clip measures 1 1/2" long by 3/8" wide and it weighs 9.7 grams. It is fully signed with Antonio's crown as well as Eagle 17 assay mark and "970" "STERLING TAXCO MEXICO" and dates in the 1950s-60s....

Fantastic sense of movement, great patina and two gorgeous pearls make this set of Antonio earrings immediately attract the eye! I love the pinwheel design - there is something festive and also "frenetic" about it that is, however, elegantly moderated with the classy touch of the pearls. The earrings are just above 1 1/4" in diameter and the set weighs 10.2 grams. It is signed with Antonio's crown mark though partial due to lack of space and an equally partial Eagle assay mark. Dating in the 19...
