30″ Cecilia Tono Mexican silver Chain Necklace ~ cage and baton links with azur malachite inlay

on Nov 20, 2017 in archived

At 30 1/2″ this opera length Cecilia Tono necklace comes from a small collection of similar necklaces I have acquired and am proud to be presenting here. The specific example is made up of twisted sterling “cage” links that alternate with oblong ones inlaid with richly colored azur malachite. The predominant color is saturated blue with splashes of green here and there that add interest and leave you pleasantly surprised…


Size/Weight: 30  1/2″ long by 5/16″ wide (maximum width of cage links); 62.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “AC” as well as “Cecilia”, “Tono” and “TAXCO 925”, “MEXICO STERLING”; I don’t see an Eagle assay mark and unless it was stamped on a tag that has long been lost, this is a pre-1948 piece

Condition: excellent vintage with strong color, fantastic patina and no damage to the inlay nor any repairs noted – a real pleasure to wear t00



SOLD – Thank you!
