Fantastic Antonio Pineda 970 silver and black onyx pendant necklace, the cross at hand blurs the boundaries between the religious and the artistic. I love the velvet cord with its silver repousse ball ends and the chunkiness of the onyx inlay. I also consider the original Antonio pouch the necklace comes with an added – and difficult to find – bonus…
Size/Weight: pendant is 3 1/8″ tall (including the bail) by 2 3/8″ wide; velvet cord is 24 1/2″ long (including the two silver spheres); 49.4 grams (for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: marke’s crown mark and Eagle 3 as well as “970” and “HECHO EN MEXICO”; no des. no as is always the case with Antonio’s pieces bearing Eagle 3;
Condition: very good vintage with great patina, slick design and its velvet cord in excellent shape as well; there is the tiniest, most imperceptible little nick in the onyx on the bail’s right (as one faces the pendant) but it’s literally unnoticeable
SOLD – Thank you!
