Felipe Martinez opened his shop, "Piedra Y Plata" in 1950. A former sculptor who had worked with Hubert Harmon in the 1940's, Martinez was known for his work with beautiful stones which melded seamlessly into his silver designs. This necklace features chrysocolla stones with a trapezoidal shape which alternate with concave silver panels in front. Stones and silver panels graduate in size, with the upper sides of the necklace all silver...

One rarely sees work produced by La Joya. La Joya designs are unique and original, the craftsmanship superb. This necklace dates to pre-1948. It's a definite statement piece, adorned with 7 amethyst cabochons. The largest of them measures 7/8" x 7/16", and sits on the center "ribbon". Centerpiece measures just under 5 1/2" across. The amethysts are beautiful stones, well matched in color, with natural inclusions...

Very reminiscent of the work of Alphonse La Paglia who, in turn, was influenced by Georg Jensen (his teacher) and the Danish Arts and Crafts movement, this vintage sterling silver operculum ring is not a piece I would ever expect myself to offer. Until the moment I laid eyes on it, my relationship with the beloved shell of the Victorians was rather shaky. In truth, I was a little scared of it - it looks so much like a huge, astonished eye staring right at you...

Dating in the first decades of the 20th c. this Italian Renaissance Revival necklace is wrought in .800 silver and adorned with flat-cut and cabochon sodalite. In the same style as “Grand Tour” jewelry popularized by the Peruzzi and Coppini houses in Florence, this piece features grape clusters and leaves while also showcasing shell, floral garland and rosette links in its ornate chain...

Signed by a listed “middle period” Taxco maestro primarily known for his repousse work, this 1950s carved azur-malachite and sterling “mask” pendant necklace is as stunning as it is unexpected. Dark blues, deep greens and earthy browns add depth and gravity to the stone, making the ancient figure’s features as stern in sleep as they must have been in that life lived centuries ago...

Here is a pin that we just love! The colors are so pretty, and the leafy design is so very Arts & Crafts-y! It consists of a berry and leaf motif, highlighted by a central cushion-cut cabochon blue chalcedony (thought to bring good luck), with a round green aventurine cabochon on either side. Measuring 1-1/4” x 3/8", it is unmarked but tests as silver. It is in excellent condition, although the pin is a little bent (pretty typical for these old pieces)...

A very rare example of Enrique Ledesma’s work, this modernist Taxco brooch features the maestro’s signature abstract silver overlay on a convex horn platform. Bovine horn is not an often-used material in the world of vintage Mexican jewelry yet from time to time, one is lucky enough to find a piece made of it. Here the colors have a warm softness that cushions the sterling overlay with the appliques being firmly riveted to the horn...

All Items : Estate Jewelry : Silver : Modernism : Pre 1980 item #1449434 (stock #JJ4047)
A vintage heavy sterling silver hand made brooch with what looks like a prong set moonstone. Setting is very organic with tentacles and curves.

Nice contrast between the oxidized inner areas and the polished edges.

Measures 2 1/8" across and 1 5/8" at the widest.

There is an impressed rectangular mark on the back but it is too tiny to read. Has a rollover clasp that holds securely.

Well crafted, solid silver.

Unusual design.

Following in the tradition of Mexico City “jeweled” jewelry closely associated with Matilde Poulat, this Mexican Deco silver and amethyst cross pendant necklace is not signed for maker yet its rich patina, beautiful stones and exceptional chain more than compensate for the absence. I could hardly exaggerate how rare it is to find a repousse chain of this beauty, let alone one adorned with richly colored amethyst cabs. The stones’ circular shape is cleverly reflected in the beading on the c...
