A difficult to find Margot de Taxco demi consisting of a necklace with detachable pendant that can be used as a brooch as well and matching earrings, this is one of Margot’s most elegant parures. The set is astonishing in its workmanship – everything, from the beading on the links of the chain to the more pronounced spheres on the pendant/brooch, to the faceting of the color-changing gems and the dark oxidation has been paid attention to. The simulated alexandrites (in fact, color-change sapphires or corundum) appear deep purple with a tinge of burgundy in daylight yet taken on a steely hue under studio lighting. And there are four of them, pear shaped, and very generous in size – even the gems on the earrings. A set fit for a queen, truly…
Size/Weight: necklace’s wearable length (with the pendant attached to it) is 15 1/2″; pendant/brooch by itself is 2 1/8″ wide with a 2 7/8″ drop; earrings are 1 1/2″ long by 5/8″ wide; 105.2 grams (for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: signed on the back of the pin/pendant with Margot’s name as well as “”STERLING MADE IN MEXICO”, des. no 5272 and Eagle 16 assay mark; earrings have been converted to posts and thus lost their hallmarks
Condition: excellent vintage with no damage or repairs, the most wonderful patina in the silver, rich color in the gems and the overall quality that Margot jewelry is known and avidly collected for
