Arte en Plata Mexican silver long Earrings ~ Taxco mod dangles

on Feb 5, 2015 in archived


Generously long and beautifully crafted, a set of vintage Mexican silver dangle earrings made for Arte en Plata, a Mexico City based shop owned by the Jacopo brothers. Arte en Plata sold high quality jewelry commissioned from independent maestros in Taxco whose initials can often be found marking the pieces as well. The earrings at hand, steeped in Spanish Colonial tradition interpreted here with a mod twist are part of a set that also includes the matching bracelet…


Size/Weight: 2  3/8″ long by 7/8″ wide; 13.0 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “AJ” as well as “TAXCO STERLING 925” and Eagle 3 assay mark; though the “Arte en Plata” mark is not on the earrings due to lack of space, the matching bracelet bears the whole set of hallmarks; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage, very impressive in size and design with beautiful patina and no flaws noted



SOLD – Thank you!
