Vintage Mexican silver clamper bracelet, its two opposing wings featuring the image of Quetzalcoatl, the divine feathered serpent, executed in bold repoussage with deep recesses and intense oxidation. Quetzalcoatl jewelry is always very impressive visually and the example at hand does not fail in capturing the eye and grasping the beholder’s attention. Signed by a listed yet still unidentified maestro, this is the perfect bracelet for the daring female. It has a 7″ inner circumference with a...

Vintage 1940s-50s Norseland sterling silver bracelet based on Jensen's highly sought-after "dove" design, this is a gorgeous piece with nice casting, beautiful stones and the patina you want to see on jewelry of this period. Owned by Coro, Norseland was reserved for the company's highest quality designs, quite often based on Scandinavian and more specifically Danish originals. Measuring 7 1/2" long (wearable) by 7/8" wide, the bracelet weighs 37.5 grams and is fully signed as shown. In excellen...

Vintage Mexican silver repousse clamper bracelet in a classic Taxco fern design that is here presented with a dramatic flare to the tips of the two "wings". This piece bears the signature of Esperanza and I think this the earlier version of the hallmarks pictured by Hougart on p. 69 in the electronic edition of his book. The quality of the silver sheet used and the careful craftsmanship combine here to create a tour-de-force of dramatic movement and excellent design execution. The bracelet has a...

Early Victoria Mexican sterling silver cuff bracelet, this is one of my favorite designs of hers and I am thrilled to be presenting it here. Inspired by Mexico's ancient pyramids, it combines masterful overlay and oxidation with the strong geometry of Aztec and Maya architecture in a distinctly Deco way. The cuff has an inner circumference of just shy of 7" (including the 1 3/8" gap) and is relatively adjustable but I would advise to exert caution so as not to dislodge the overlay. The bracele...

Early Mexican Deco silver repousse necklace in a design associated with the opening years of Fred Davis’s career, the layered beading that it features has become a classic in the country’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance. Beguilingly luscious, irresistible to the eye and so comfortable to wear, this is one of those necklaces around which collections are built! I particularly love the all-silver version at hand with its lower perimeter free of any connections between the links that allows it to fa...

Vintage Los Ballesteros silver hinged bangle bracelet adorned with a huge citrine gem, this hefty modernist piece is so close in style to earlier Machine Age jewelry and a show-stopper at that. I am particularly fond of the specific workshop's line of hinged bangles like the one presented here - they come in all widths, adorned with various hard-stones or gems and I consider them the epitome of Los Ballesteros creativity. The stone is light lemony in color with lots of sparkle and the substantia...

Versatile, classically elegant and very well made, this opera length Tono for Cecilia necklace is a veritable feast for the eye. I love the geometry of the sterling links with their pagoda-like form and the beauty of the amethyst beads with all their inclusions that Mexican amethyst is known and loved for. The necklace is 32" long (wearable) by 3/8" wide and weighs a generous 58.9 grams. It is marked with both Tono's name as well as "Cecilia" in script alongside "STERLING TAXCO" and des. no 92. ...

Long and substantial, this vintage Tono for Cecilia Mexican silver chain necklace is comprised of tubular and small sterling spherical links interrupted by big, hand-cut amethyst beads and sterling lozenges with azur-malachite inlay. A feast for the eye with strong colors and fantastic patina, it can be worn by itself or combined with similar pieces. Chain necklaces of this kind seem to be very popular again and I am thrilled to have come upon a number of them in the last few months. The beauty ...

Amazingly well made and so tactile, Aguilar's "book and three bead" design is a pleasure to see in earring form. Executed in 940 silver, the dangles presented here have a magic fleshiness and their patina is what you want to see on a well-loved, cherished Hector set. They measure 1 1/2" long by 5/8" wide and weigh a good 22.6 grams (for the set). Both earrings are marked with Aguilar's mark from the 1948-62 period and the set is in excellent vintage condition, fabulously gorgeous, with no damag...

A very rare and early Mexican repousse cuff this is an unsigned piece yet its incredible workmanship and design originality elevates it to museum quality. My hypothesis is that it represents an ancient ritual, possibly associated with Malinalxochitl, the Aztec sorceress and goddess of snakes, scorpions and insects of the desert. Crisp, rich and boldly assertive its repoussage is of the highest quality and proves yet again the undeniable craftsmanship of the anonymous early maestro. The cuff has ...

Big, bold and beautiful an early Mexican Deco pin / pendant in a starburst design, its rays executed in repoussage and profusely adorned with beading, wirework and beautifully colored amethyst cabs. It is paired with a repousse chain that is perfect for it albeit a little later - the two look fabulous together but you can always wear the brooch alone and enjoy the chain with a different pendant. The starburst has a diameter of 3 1/4" and the chain is 20" long with a width of just above 1/4". Th...

Big modernist Erika Hult de Corral Mexican silver ring with a richly colored amethyst cab nested in a modernist setting that borders on brutalism. I love Ric's jewelry, especially her rings, because they can be very bold and they are always immaculately finished. A real stunner, the ring is currently a comfortable sz 7.5 (easily resizable, I think, without fear of losing the hallmarks). It rises 7/16" off the finger when you have it on and its face is 7/8" in diameter. It weighs a good 18.4 gram...

Substantial Rancho Alegre bracelet, this vintage Taxco treasure is a pleasure to wear and to behold and will stay with you for ever! The bracelet’s floral links have their layered construction accented with oxidation and brightened with faceted aqua blue gems that register in the topaz area on my gem tester. This is a difficult to find piece and the Rancho Alegre signature, whose founder, Pedro Perez, had been Spratling’s shop manager earlier in his career, guarantees its quality of workman...

Classy and timelessly elegant, this vintage Deco Mexican silver bracelet brings to mind early Margot de Taxco designs and even though not signed for maker, its quality bespeaks the anonymous maestro's mastery over his art. Embellished with graduated in size beading and small cut-outs that lighten the big,heart-shaped motif in the front, it is also adorned with a big, faceted amethyst that is set open-backed to maximize the effect of light. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (clas...

Stunning set of 1950s Miguel Melendez Mexican silver and tiger's eye earrings in a multi-tiered chandelier design, this is a pair for the daring female. Having started his career at Spratling's Las Delicias and then worked for the Los Castillo before ending up as manager of Margot's workshop, Melendez ventured on his own in 1953 and, in my opinion, he was at his best when he created modernist jewelry. Warm, golden caramel and brown hues give a magical brilliance to the tiger's eye teardrops whil...

At 30 1/2" this opera length Cecilia Tono necklace comes from a small collection of similar necklaces I have acquired and am proud to be presenting here. The specific example is made up of twisted sterling "cage" links that alternate with oblong ones inlaid with richly colored azur malachite. The predominant color is saturated blue with splashes of green here and there that add interest and leave you pleasantly surprised. The necklace's width is 5/16" and it weighs 62.5 grams. It is fully hallm...

A stunner of a ring this 1970s brutalist beauty is not signed for maker yet its anonymity does not take away from its powerful presence and the intriguing complexity of its design. I am very partial to brutalist jewelry and thrilled to be presenting this piece here - just take a look at the deep, dark, saturated color of the substantial amethyst cabochon it houses among twisting and twirling silver tendrils. The ring is a sz 6 (yet easily resizable by your jeweler) and rises approx. 1/2" off the...

With the quality that characterizes all Margot de Taxco jewelry, the sterling silver hammmered and oxidized ring I am presenting here is out of the modernist "figure eight" parure and a precious find. Margot rings are quite difficult to come upon and this one is gorgeous and ... adjustable. Currently a sz 6 (I believe it can go up a couple of sizes from this position), its face is 9/16" by approx. 7/8". The ring weighs 7.1 grams and is fully signed with Margot's name as well as Eagle 16 assay m...
