43″ N Jacopo Mexican silver Lariat Necklace with tassels

on Oct 8, 2019 in archived

I am fascinated by lariat necklaces – be they Mexican or not, made of silver or costume, signed by known maestros or anonymous, they hold sway over me with their allusion to times when girls decided to be naughty, cut their hair boy-style and have fun. Yet as with all… jewelry Mexican, Mexican lariats are more often than not substantial and generous in weight. Like the example by N. Jacopo here: thick twist rope chain ends in two luscious tassels in a brushed finish with a length forgiving enough to allow you to wear it in several different ways. Your imagination is the only limit…


Size/Weight: 43 1/2” long (end to end); the tassel part is 2” on either end with the diameter of the sphere being just shy of 11/16″; rope chain length is 39 1/2”; chain diameter is 3/8”; 222.3 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s name yet really badly stamped with Eagle 3 assay mark that Jacopo used; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with no damage or repairs noted, fantastic presence and generous weight; please note that this example does not have a clip which is often the case with Mexican lariats
