sculptural Margot de Taxco Mexican silver zodiac Necklace with Carlos Castillo chain ~ Aquarius

on Sep 18, 2016 in archived


Margot de Taxco is the undeniable queen of zodiac jewelry in my opinion, at least within the field of vintage Mexican silver. Her astrological pendants are unsurpassable in their sculptural qualities and here the treat is amplified because the Aquarius charm is paired with a hefty Carlos Castillo chain of the same period. Exceptional workmanship, great weight and patina to die for make for a stunning necklace…
