classic Margot de Taxco Mexican silver Necklace ~ des no 5337 Curling line

on Nov 23, 2015 in archived


Published in Penny Morrill’s latest book on Margot de Taxco’s enamel work, the so called “Curling Lines” necklace is one of her most loved designs and definitely a piece that epitomizes her understanding of femininity and elegance. Deeply sculpted repousse links that bring to mind feathers dotted with perfect silver beads, lead to a gorgeous central piece where the silver twists and twirls like waves in the sea. Craftsmanship of the highest level, attention to detail and perfect finishing are all present here – as is always the case with Margot jewelry. A stunning necklace, impervious to fashion whims – isn’t that what makes a classic?


Size/Weight: 15  1/2″ long (wearable; possibly even 15  3/4″ due to the curve in the central link); 3/8″ wide at the chain; central link is 2  7/8″ wide with a total drop of approx. 1  7/8″; 60.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully and appropriately signed with Margot’s name, des. no 5337 as well as Eagle 16 assay mark and “STERLING MADE IN MEXICO”; 1950s-60s
