early Deco Mexican silver lariat Necklace ~ a Taxco sterling classic

Early Mexican Deco silver lariat necklace, this is the perfect piece for all of us who love the form yet don’t necessarily subscribe to excessively long and generously heavy necklaces. I consider lariats the epitome of classy elegance – though minimalist in their design, they can also be quite impressive visually; and their slick figure allows them to be combined with anything you choose to wear. Of medium length, with good yet not overwhelming weight, fantastic patina and “discretely” luscious tassels, the example at hand also comes with its original clip. Divine…

 

Size/Weight: 29″ total length; chain itself is 25  1/2″ while each tassel measures 1  3/4″; diameter of tassel sphere is just above 1/2″; 89.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “GMS” as well as “925”; 1930s-40s

Condition: very good vintage with stunning presence, great patina and no damage or repairs; there is a very small, shallow impression in one of the tassel beads that looks like it was done during the necklace’s crafting – not distracting, it adds character rather than offend the eye

 

Offered at $595.00
