Sigi Pineda Mexican silver and obsidian Necklace ~ rare and fabulous Taxco modernism

on Sep 30, 2016 in archived


Magnificent Sigi Pineda necklace, this is a very rare to come upon design boasting a big modernist pendant with two flat-cut sheen obsidian cabs hanging off the most slick, most minimalist neck ring. Definitely Sigi in one of his most inspired moments so I am thrilled to be offering it here. The stones are perfect, revealing their golden depths as the light hits them, and the set has acquired a wonderful glow over the years. A stunning example of Taxco modernism and Sigi’s design genius…


Size/Weight: pendant just above 4” long by a tad shy of 2  3/4” wide; neck ring has an inner circumference of 14  1/2” (including the gap) but wears more like a 15” at least (slightly adjustable too, should one need to open it up more); 50.9 grams

Hallmarks / Date: both pieces fully signed with Sigi’s name as shown with the neck ring also bearing Eagle 35 assay mark and des. no 915 while the pendant has des. no 2 and an Eagle stamp as well that is partially stamped; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with no problems nor any repairs, worthy of the best Taxco and modernist jewelry collection


SOLD – Thank you!
