Mexican Deco silver and amethyst beaded hinged Bracelet

on Aug 7, 2018 in archived

An iconic Mexican Deco bracelet design, usually not signed for maker like here, beaded and jeweled pieces as the fantastic example at hand are becoming quite difficult to find any more. Four rows of silver semi-spheres form the bracelet’s two wings with two rows of amethyst cabs overlaid in the front on either side of the hidden clasp, which is accented by three big stones. A lot of work went into the crafting of these pieces and even though the maestro who created the bracelet at hand remains anonymous to us, his mastery over his art will always be evident…


Size/Weight: 6  3/4″ inner circumference (clasped); width between 1  5/8″ at center front and 1″; 52.7 grams

Hallmarks / Date: simply marked “STERLING MEXICO”; 1930s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with deep patina especially in the front and on the inner surfaces (you can easily give it a shine, if you wish), no damage in the stones that are all there, secure in their bezels, with no damage or repairs noted in the silver-work except for the occasional, expected for this type of bracelet, little impression in a bead or two; not offensive and quite imperceptible in fact
