It is a rare occurrence when one comes upon a Hector Aguilar necklace wrought in copper yet if the stars align, nothing is impossible! Copper articles, including jewelry, holloware and home accessories, were crafted by many workshops in Taxco, the most famous of them not lagging behind. I suspect, however, that unlike silver jewelry, most straight copper pieces did not survive and I am thrilled to be presenting the necklace at hand. I am not sure whether this design was produced in silver as well but I can attest to the assertiveness of the copper version... The necklace is 15 3/8" long (wearable; might wear a little shorter due to the size of the links; once clasped, it becomes a little roomier and I think it could easily be extended with the appropriate copper extender) by 1 1/4" wide (diameter of the links) and weighs 114.5 grams (for reference only since there is no precious metal here). It is fully hallmarked with Aguilar's conjoined initials as well as "TAXCO" and "MEXICO" as shown (the first two are also stamped on the hook of the clasp) and dates in the 1950s. In excellent vintage condition with powerful presence (definitely fit for a warrior queen!), great patina and no damage or repairs noted.
