Antonio Pineda Mexican 970 silver black obsidian crescents Bracelet

on Mar 22, 2019 in archived

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!
