Classically elegant with just that tad of playfulness that makes a demi a pleasure to wear and to behold, this set of necklace and earrings by Margot de Taxco features luscious teardrop dangles and carefully wrought beading. Longer than most similar pieces from the period, the necklace is so comfortable and behaves perfectly when you have it on while the earrings can hold their own even if you decide they will be your only adornment for the evening. Fully hallmarked and with no damage noted, the necklace is 17 3/4" long (wearable) with the dangles adding a 7/8" drop to it. The earrings are 1 3/8" long by 3/8" wide and the demi weighs 49.2 grams (41.6 grams for the necklace alone). Dating in the 1950s-60s and in excellent vintage condition with a warm glow and the quality that Margot demis are known for.
