There can be no other design that epitomizes Mexican Deco better than Abraham Paz's "mask". One of the maestro's earliest creations, it can be found with Fred Davis's signature as well as with Paz's initials - like the ring at hand. Splendidly shaped, the "mask" is only minimally carved to denote the eyes, nose and mouth...

Vintage mid-century mod Mexican silver cuff bracelet, this piece is a veritable ode to the sublime nature of minimalism. I adore the perfection of the curve, the heftiness of the architectural band, the fantastic patina. We don't know much about Taxco's Arte en Plata yet but I think the "arte" in their name is well-deserved. The cuff measures 6 1/2" inner circumference (including the 1 1/4" gap; perfect for smaller to medium wrists) and 7/16" in width and thickness...

Vintage sterling repousse Mexican hinged bracelet with rows of silver semi-spheres and turquoise cabs, this is a classic Deco design and one of the most enduring early Mexico City creations. The example at hand is what I would consider the "medium width" version of it comprised of four rows of silver half-beads alternating in the front with rows of smaller beads and bezel set stones. With a 7" inner circumference (clasped) the bracelet is 1 1/8" wide and weighs 41.7 grams...

Classic Deco Mexican silver and amethyst bracelet in a highly stylized foliate design, I love this piece for its big, chunky stone. With its articulated links it conforms to the wrist’s every move and feels like silk when you have it on. Yet the most stunning detail is the deep, saturated color of the amethyst...

Rare and early a Los Castillo Mexican silver and amethyst necklace, this beauty is a veritable Taxco treasure. Comprised of 3 strands of small, hand-wrought beads accented by a big, lusciously colored central cabochon, it is completed by a special silver clasp adorned with a smaller yet equally beautiful stone. The high content of the alloy used here (.980 instead of the standard sterling, .925) has allowed for the most wonderful patina to develop...

One of the nicest, early Los Castillo repousse necklaces I have seen, this piece is a pleasure to wear and to behold.

Perfect for medium to smaller wrists the bracelet has an actual length of approx. 7" yet a very long hook makes it wear more like a 6 1/4" by 2 1/8" wide. It weighs 76.5 grams, is simply marked "STERLING MEXICO" and in excellent vintage condition. Please n...
