In my opinion one of Sigi's most exquisite creations, the "wave" or "ribbon" necklace I am presenting here is an iconic piece for the maestro and one of Taxco's best modernist moments. Going back to the classic "pectoral" form yet stripping away all but the most essential design elements, Sigi combines matte sterling surfaces with undulating ribbon appliquÃ©s and dramatic niello accents in a veritable masterpiece. The necklace is a wearable 14 1/2" - 14 3/4" and is designed such as to have the pectoral sit on the collar bone (it is incredibly comfortable when worn, however, probably due to its articulated construction). The pectoral part is 4 3/8" wide and its drop at center front reaches 1 3/8". Weighing a good 109.0 grams, the necklace is fully signed with Sigi's name as shown alongside "HECHO EN MEXICO", des. no 60 and Eagle 3 assay mark. It dates in the 1960s and is in excellent vintage condition.
