Obviously inspired by modernist design and more specifically by one of Antonio Pineda’s creations this set of sterling silver and tiger’s eye necklace and bracelet was made in Taxco in the time the renowned maestro was also active. Signed by one of those maestros who are known to us by their initials only – and of course, the work they left behind – the demi is such a treat to the eye and so easy to wear! I am very attracted to tiger’s eye – it is probably my sweet tooth talking here but don’t these cabs look like little pools of molten caramel? The necklace and bracelet came to me together and there is no reason for me to doubt that they actually started their life as a pair as well. So I decided that they should keep trailing through life as a seasoned, loyal couple. And if I may suggest? You could even clasp the two pieces together and create a longer necklace…
Size/Weight: necklace is 16 3/4″ long (wearable) by 9/16″ wide; bracelet is 7 1/4″ long (wearable) with the same width as the necklace; necklace is 61.6 grams; bracelet is 28.2 grams (89.8 grams for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “FCH” alongside “TAXCO 925 MEXICO” and Eagle 3 assay mark; 1960s-70s
Condition: excellent vintage with warm, golden colors in the stones, great patina and no damage or repairs noted – this is such a lovely, flexible set, you will never tire of it
