A very difficult design to find, Margot de Taxco's no 5384 is sheer geometry and a celebration of dark, rich oxidation. It is understandable then that I am thrilled to be presenting the necklace and bracelet demi here. Raised sterling bands around the perimeter of the cut-out design lend three-dimensional appeal to both pieces which is further accentuated by the black surfaces they define. This is by far my favorite "knot" design of hers; not too simple, not overwhelmingly complicated - just guaranteed attention grabber. And the proportions of the bracelet are to die for. A must-have for the discerning collector and lover of all things beautiful alike. The necklace measures 16 1/2" long (wearable; might even feel a little more comfortable due to the dip at center front) with the central "knot" link being 3" wide and adding a 1 7/8" drop . The necklace's width at the chain is 5/16" and it weighs 54.4 grams. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7 1/4" (clasped) and is 2 1/8" wide. It weighs 113.3 grams which brings the total weight for set up to 167.7 grams. Both pieces are fully and appropriately signed as shown with Margot's logo as well as "STERLING MADE IN MEXICO", Eagle 16 and des no 5384. The demi dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition with nice patina, its oxidation in great shape, stunning in its geometry, with no damage or repairs noted - a rare treasure by Margot de Taxco!
