Los Ballesteros Mexican silver Necklace with faceted amethyst gems

on Oct 4, 2019 in archived

Exquisite Los Ballesteros Mexican silver necklace with geometric links cut out of thick sterling sheet, this piece is adorned with eight faceted, gem quality amethysts. Securely held in place with substantial prongs, the gems are open-backed to take advantage of the sparkle that light bestows to them as it filters through. This is a dressy necklace, elegant and eye-catching, and it has all the characteristics of the best Los Ballesteros jewelry. A pleasure to behold, it is also quite comfortable to wear because of its articulation and the fact that it is longer than most Mexican necklaces of this type…
