Enrique Ledesma Mexican silver and three gems hinged Bracelet

on Sep 7, 2020 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American

A true maestro when it comes to combining silver with faceted, brilliant gems Enrique Ledesma is the creator of this modernist Mexican hinged bangle bracelet. Ledesma set three color-change sapphires against a glistening sterling frame here but I have also had one or two similar pieces in which the silver had been oxidized. Held in place with prongs, the stones are open-backed allowing the light to play its luminous games and coax different colors out of the stones. I love the geometry of the bracelet itself, the deep valley running its length at mid-width turning the surfaces into mirrors that enhance the sapphires’ beauty…
