Sigi Pineda Mexican silver modernist Necklace ~ “ribbon” pectoral

on Aug 14, 2018 in archived


In my opinion one of Sigi’s most exquisite creations, the “wave” or “ribbon” necklace I am presenting here is an iconic piece for the maestro and one of Taxco’s best modernist moments. Going back to the classic “pectoral” form yet stripping away all but the most essential design elements, Sigi combines matte sterling surfaces with undulating ribbon appliqués and dramatic niello accents in a veritable masterpiece…


Size/Weight: 14  1/2″ – 14 3/4″ long (wearable; designed such as to have the pectoral sit on the collar bone; incredibly comfortable when worn, however, due to its articulated construction); pectoral part is 4  3/8″ wide and its drop at center front reaches 1  3/8″; 109.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Sigi’s name as shown alongside “HECHO EN MEXICO”, des. no 60 and Eagle 3 assay mark; 1960s

Condition: excellent vintage, classically mod and very elegant, with the most amazing, silky patina and no damage or repairs noted

Inv. #13352
