Substantial Rancho Alegre bracelet and earrings set, this vintage Taxco demi  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. The same links become stunning dangles in the earrings. This is a rare set and the Rancho Alegre signature, whose founder, Pedro Perez, had been Spratling’s shop manager earlier in his career, guarantees its quality of workmanship and attention to detail…
