One of Antonio Pineda’s most dynamic bracelet designs, the “crescents” is usually found with black onyx inlay – the version I am presenting here has black obsidian, however, and it is harder to find. If you look carefully at the photos, you can see the sheen in some of the crescents; it hides deep inside them but it’s there. I feel there is something almost brutalist about this bracelet. The links are like the talons of a bird of prey as they close around the wrist, claiming ownership over the wearer…
Size/Weight: comfortable 6 1/2″ long (wearable; might even feel a little roomier) by 1 3/8″ wide; 118.3 grams
Hallmarks / Date: marked with Antonio’s crown as shown as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO”, Eagle 17 assay mark and “970”, albeit that last one only partially there; 1950s-60s
Condition: excellent vintage with the obsidian securely set in its bezels having no chips or cracks, the silver having developed a great patina and with the added security of a safety chain
SOLD – Thank you!
