Mexican Deco silver and amethyst foliate Necklace Earrings set

on Jun 20, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Necklaces, Rings/earrings

Surprisingly comfortable in length for a vintage Mexican necklace of this period, this Deco sterling silver and amethyst foliate beauty comes with its matching earrings. There is something very powerful in the meticulously (albeit with a certain endearing naivete) hand-cut and chased leaf motifs prevalent in the design. Maybe it’s the leaves’ serrated edges; maybe it’s the confident way they combine with the beading and amethyst cabs to form the necklace’s central station and the elegant earrings. Be that as it may, what we have here is an excellent – and rare in its design – early Mexican Deco demi…

 

Size / Weight: necklace is 17 1/4″ long (wearable; length can also be adjusted downwards); central station is 3″ wide with a drop of 2″; width at the chain is 3/4″; earrings are 1 1/4″ long by just shy of 1″ wide; necklace is 40.4 grams; earrings are 8.7 grams (49.1 grams for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: simply marked “STERLING MEXICO” on necklace and “SILVER MEXICO” on earrings; 1920s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with strong presence, nice patina and an interesting foliate design that doesn’t come up often; no damage and no repairs noted – a beautiful demi waiting to be worn and enjoyed again
