These very attractive Mexican silver earrings were probably made in the 1950s or 60s. They are pierced and inlayed with abalone. The condition is very good with no missing shell. The earrings are very thin and lightweight with screw backs. They are marked MEXICO, JRB and other that I can not read. The inner design is a bird, perhaps a thunderbird. Nice pieces for a collector and also to wear. Crafting is superior. Please request image of Marks, the images are too small to be seen at this site.
