Enrique Ledesma Mexican silver obsidian Bracelet ~ Taxco modernist design

on May 12, 2018 in archived

Enrique Ledesma does not need to be introduced to the lover of vintage Mexican silver jewelry. I am sure he is also known in the circles of those who love modernist design – after all he was one of Taxco’s most inspired modernist maestros. What I particularly love about his work, however, is his superb way of marrying sterling and stone. A great lapidary, Ledesma seamlessly embeds carved golden sheen obsidian bands in architectural silver links in the bracelet at hand. Sheer minimalist perfection…


Size/Weight: 6  1/2″ inner circumference (clasped) by 1″ wide; 57.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “TAXCO MEXICO 925” and Eagle 3 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with the obsidian showing its golden depths whenever the light hits it at the right angle, impressively architectural yet as minimalist as can be, having warm patina (you can always polish a little) and no damage or repairs noted
