One Good Eye Silver

SOLD - Thank you!
In the same "fleshy" fleur-de-lis design as the matching necklace that is also available on this site, this bracelet showcases Gerardo Lopez's mastery over the art of repoussage and makes one of the strongest cases against messing with the patina sterling silver jewelry acquire over time. I consider Lopez's jewelry among the best "buys" one can get when it comes to this period of Mexico's Silver Renaissance - not only are they impeccably crafted, his pieces have also good weight and many times offer a more approacheable option to their "big name" counterparts. The bracelet here measures a wearable 7" long (actual lenght is 7 7/16" but the hook of the clasp "eats up" some of that length) and it's 15/16" wide. It weighs 32.1 grams and is fully signed with Lopez's name as well as "STERLING 925 TAXCO", "HECHO EN MEXICO" and also bears Eagle 23 assay mark. It dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition.
