Miguel Martinez modernist Mexican silver and sapphire dangle Earrings

on Dec 30, 2014 in archived


Vintage 1950s Miguel Martinez Mexican silver and purple sapphire dangle earrings, this set is a real stunner both in size as well as in the complexity of its design and construction. Stylized articulated heart and foliate motifs accented by the changing color of the faceted gems attract the eye and reflect the light in myriads of different ways…


Size/Weight: 3  1/8″ long (just shy of it!) by 1  7/16″ wide; 22.1 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: Miguel’s signature in script as well as “TAXCO MEX”, Eagle 3 assay mark and “JINT” as well as what seems to read as “kalila” which I assume were the initials of the silversmith involved in the pair’s crafting and name of retailer respectively; 1950s

Condition: excellent vintage in a visually strong design with beautiful stones and great patina



SOLD – Thank you!
