early Carmen Beckmann Mexican silver and amethyst Necklace

on Aug 23, 2016 in archived


Impressive and quite generous in weight while at the same time not easy to find, the Carmen Beckmann necklace presented here is wrought in sterling and has flat-cut oval amethyst stones adorning its stylized foliate links. Based on design and construction, I tend to believe that this is an early example of Beckmann’s work and it is exquisite…


Size/Weight: 16 1/2″ long (wearable; once clasped, it becomes a little roomier at 16 3/4″); 1″ wide (at its widest); 71.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “MEXICO STERLING”; 1960s

Condition: excellent vintage with a very good patina – you could always buff it up a little as I have hardly touched it -, having lusciously colored stones with nice inclusions and no damage noted


SOLD – Thank you!
