Here is one of our very favorite rings. It would make a great engagement ring for a woman who wants something a bit different. Also great for Christmas, St. Patrick’s, or really any other time! The central diamond is approximately 20 points (1/5 of a carat, but looks bigger), and is set in platinum. The rest of the setting is made of unmarked but tested 14k gold of a lovely rich yellow. There are 4 tiny rubies and 3 tiny green demantoid garnets...

Unadulterated commitment to minimalism - this is the statement this Antonio Pineda modernist bracelet makes. I have sold this specific design a couple of times in the past but its unpretentious beauty never fails to impress me. Wrought in the maestro's favorite .970 alloy, it has had a long, happy life and is now waiting for its next caretaker. It has a 6 3/4" inner circumference (clasped) with a width just shy of 1" wide and weighs a good 110.4 grams...

The Matl Taller signed properly Turkeys is one of those outstanding designs by Matilde Poulat. A tulip in it's center is truly georgeous. There is approximately 19 in. of wearable length that lays perfectly all the way around the neck. The center is 2 1/8th inches tall. I would classify the size as being a firm mid size necklace with an impressive presence. The weight is 82 grams of quality workmanship. No damage or welds, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!

Antonio Pineda's fine silver and pearl jewelry are among my most favorite by the renowned Taxco designer. I consider pearls to be the epitome of elegance and when they adorn modernist settings, they magically bequeath some of that timeless classy luster to their minimalist frame. There are three pearls here, graduated in size, nested closely together against an oxidized channel that makes their soft glistening more pronounced...

It is a rare occurrence to find a Fred Davis brooch that is inspired by Olmec art and I am thrilled to be presenting this example here. Set in a classically Deco, tiered sterling frame, the "mask" is carved out of malachite that is left unpolished, and fit in its bezel with a band across the forehead keeping it securely in place. The stone has beautiful striations and as you can see, it also had a natural fissure in it that has popped revealing some of the black inclusions in the malachite...

A very rare design to find in the form of a bracelet the "crouching man" was originally designed by Taxco's foremost modernist, Salvador Teran, and in my opinion, it is one of the most successful re-interpetations of an ancient motif within the design vernacular of the 1950s-60s. The fact that it's so difficult to find with Teran's signature drives prices high up and makes examples by different makers sought after as well...
