Most amazing ever Italian 800 silver charm bracelet in the style of Peruzzi with huge Etruscan fob charms. I could never exaggerate the “wow” factor that this piece possesses. Bezel set chrysoprase, coral, sodalite and what I believe to be carnelian adorn the charms while the links of the chain have small coral cabochons as well. The bracelet measures 7 1/2″ long (wearable; actual length is approx. 8 1/8″) with its width at the chain being 15/16″...

Margot de Taxco sterling silver necklace comprised of “hibiscus” links, this is the wider, more impressive version of the specific design. Beautifully worked repousse underscored with hand-chasing and beading combine here with warm patina in a wonderful example of Margot’s “naturalistic” creations. The matching bracelet is also available and the two pieces look stunning together as you can see in one of the photos...

Vintage Taxco silver by pass ring bearing the signature of Pedro Castillo, a member of the renowned family of silversmiths and designers who worked for Spratling and was a maestro at Aguilar’s Taller Borda. In 1940 Pedro opened his own workshop and is mostly known for his high quality flatware yet his jewelry, though they do not surface very often, is worth looking for...

Exceptional early Deco Taxco silver bracelet, its two parts formed by rows of repousse semi-spheres accented with green turquoise cabochons. This is one of my favorite forms in an exuberant design that never fails to attract attention. Bracelets like this come in a variety of widths – this one is, I believe, the widest you can get with eight rows of beads that, in the front panel, are enhanced by overlaid rows of stone and smaller beads...

A quintessentially mod genre, I love "clamshell" Taxco jewelry them for their heft, their slick minimalism and the splash of unexpected color that usually emanates from their stones. Yet here it’s dark obsidian that anchors this piece in a classic combination that defies the passage of time. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7″ (clasped) and its width varies between 1″ and 1/2″...

Early Deco Taxco necklace, this is wrought in fine, 980 silver and its elegant, curved “dog bone” links remind me of similar motifs used by both William Spratling and Hector Aguilar. What attracted me to this piece is its calm, understated beauty – the confident combination of design elements that remain visually powerful yet don’t assault the senses in an overwhelming manner. And there is something to be said about the way fine silver such as used here warmly mellows over time...

Deco Italian 800 silver lipstick cases in a style popularized by the Peruzzi and Coppini Bros, each one adorned with faceted gems or glass cabochons, these are a must-have for every discerning lady’s pocket book! Hand-engraved and having their own little mirror that flips open when you pull the lipstick out, they were all the rage in the Deco years and one of those mementos you needed to bring back from a trip to Italy...

Abraham Tobias is known for his stupendous repousse jewelry wrought in the Mexico City style associated with Matilde Poulat. His cuff bracelets are avidly collected for their bold and flawless repoussage and their, at times, stunning proportions. In the example at hand, a so-called “Aztec Rose” takes up almost the entire face of the bracelet and draws the eye immediately to its darkened recesses...

Fabulous Taxco set of two bangle bracelets from the early and middle periods of Mexico’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance, this pair is comprised of one Etruscan style piece and a more difficult to find example with elaborate florals in thick relief. The two are stunning together and they would look gorgeous worn over a long black sleeve...

Early Taxco necklace in emulation of Matilde Poulat’s “Mexico City” repousse, this piece is wrought in 980 silver and its beauty is beyond words. Intense “tribal” flair , deep patina, strong repousse and the splash of green added by the malachite cabs combine to create a necklace fit for pre-Colombian royalty. Measuring approx. 17″ long (wearable; it’s a little difficult to measure exactly due to the curve in the pectoral) with the pectoral part being 6 1/2″ wide and 2 ...

From the renowned Zolotas “house of jewelry” first established in Athens, Greece in 1895, a vintage beaded necklace wrought of gold plated 950 silver. Generous in length and weight, this piece epitomizes the quality and design savvy the Zolotas signature is associated with. The necklace is comprised of beads based on ancient Greek motifs. Almost flat on four sides, they are held together with thick twist-rope connectors. I love the way the gold plating has mellowed over the years thus bestow...

Unmarked as is the case with many studio pieces from the 1950s-60s, a visually powerful hand-wrought silver mod bracelet. What is very impressive about this cuff is the different depths of field the eye has to rest on. Hand-hammered and heavily oxidized, it is adorned with applied biomorphic spheres and a raised rim all around its perimeter. A combination of slick elegance and urban savvy, it has and inner circumference of 6 1/8″ (including the 1 5/16″ gap) and is just above 1̸...

Made in the 1930s or early 1940s, a repousse sterling silver necklace from Mexico City in a design betraying a Spanish Colonial influence. Highly stylized florals of this type are a mainstay in the index of early Mexican Deco jewelry and this one in addition to its beautiful repousse is adorned with beading and chasing. The three amethyst cabochons centering the bigger links are rich in inclusions and color variations. Iconic and very very well made – a necklace to stand out of the crowd. Meas...

This is Taxco at its best –impeccable finishing, amazing sense of design and beauty that defies the whims of fashion. A Margot classic and an heirloom quality bracelet. The matching necklace is also available (you can see a detail in the last photo) so please ask! Having an inner circumference of 6 1/2″ ...

Lariat necklaces comprised of thick twist-rope chains and sterling tassels are a recognizable form within the field of vintage Mexican silver jewelry. The example at hand is not marked at all yet based on construction and style as well as on my experience with similar pieces that I had in the past, I believe that it’s a Taxco creation. Oftentimes hallmarks on these pieces were stamped on small silver tags that were then hung off the spring that connects the tassel to the chain and more often t...
