Sweeping swirls in graduated sizes, hand-chased and oxidized make up this stunning Los Castillo silver necklace. I have in the past sold the enameled version of this specific design but this is my first all-sterling piece. And I am loving the amazingly comfortable way it wears, the loyalty with which it holds its position around the neck and the high quality of workmanship it boasts – which, of course, characterizes all Los Castillo jewelry…
Size/Weight: 17″ long (wearable; this is a design that demands a little extra length and at 17″ the specific necklace is comfortable for most of us); central two links are 3 5/8″ wide by 2 1/4″ tall; chain links graduate in width between 7/8″ and 11/16″ (measured at the swirl); 82.3 grams
Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “MADE IN MEXICO”, “TAXCO”, “925”, Eagle assay mark 15 and des. no 110M; 1950s-60s
Condition: excellent vintage with fantastic patina, providing an absolutely fabulous fit, with the Los Castillo superior craftsmanship and no flaws noted
SOLD – Thank you!
