A superb Victoria Mexican necklace out of Ana Nunez de Brilanti’s “metales casados” line, this piece made me gasp when I first saw it! I don’t think I could ever exaggerate the slick elegance of the necklace – minimalist yet still allowing for the musical dangling of the traditional cascabeles. Fantastic patina, the easiest clasp in the world when it comes to necklaces (it clasps in the front, as you can see), amazing craftsmanship. Having an inner circumference of 15 1/2″ (clasped) it is 1 1/2 wide in the front (including the dangle) and 1/2″ on the back. It weighs 77.6 grams on a postal scale and is fully marked with maker’s signature as shown as well as “MEXICO TAXCO”, “STERLING”, Eagle 12 assay mark and des. no 215. The necklace dates in the 1950s and is in excellent vintage condition with stunningly beautiful presence, patina to die for, no damage or repairs noted, fantastic design and craftsmanship of the highest caliber.
