It is a rare occurrence when one comes upon a Hector Aguilar necklace wrought in copper yet if the stars align, nothing is impossible! Copper articles, including jewelry, holloware and home accessories, were crafted by many workshops in Taxco, the most famous of them not lagging behind. I suspect, however, that unlike silver jewelry, most straight copper pieces did not survive and I am thrilled to be presenting the necklace at hand. I am not sure whether this design was produced in silver as well but I can attest to the assertiveness of the copper version…
Size/Weight: 15 3/8″ long (wearable; might wear a little shorter due to the size of the links; once clasped, it becomes a little roomier and I think it could easily be extended with the appropriate copper extender); 1 1/4″ wide (diameter of the links); 114.5 grams (for reference only since there is no precious metal here)
Hallmarks / Date: fully hallmarked with Aguilar’s conjoined initials as well as “TAXCO” and “MEXICO” as shown (the first two are also stamped on the hook of the clasp); 1950s
Condition: excellent vintage with assertive presence (definitely fit for a warrior queen!), great patina and no damage or repairs noted
SOLD – Thank you!
