Margot de Taxco iconic Mexican silver Clamper Bracelet ~ koi with amethyst

on Feb 9, 2015 in archived


A signature design for Margot de Taxco, the koi silver and amethyst clamper bracelet is a must-have for the dedicated collector and the lover of things beautiful alike. Executed in dramatic repoussage that looks more like sculpting because of its depth and the thick silver sheet used to craft it, Margot’s original is far above and beyond all contemporary emulations be they signed by a known maker or anonymous. I leave the rest to the descriptive power of photography…


Size/Weight: 6  1/4″ inner circumference (perfect for smaller to medium wrists but can accommodate larger sizes as well due to its hinged construction); width between 4″ in the front and 1″ at its narrowest, near the hinge; 118.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “MADE IN MEXICO STERLING”, Eagle 16 assay mark (albeit badly stamped) and design no 5207; mid-1950s

Condition: excellent vintage with the sculpturality that makes Margot repousse so exceptionally beautiful, fantastic patina, gorgeous little stones, its hinge working very well and no flaws noted
