stunning Los Ballesteros Mexican silver and citrine Bracelet ~ hinged Taxco modernist bangle

on Dec 2, 2017 in archived

Vintage Los Ballesteros silver hinged bangle bracelet adorned with a huge citrine gem, this hefty modernist piece is so close in style to earlier Machine Age jewelry and a show-stopper at that. I am particularly fond of the specific workshop’s line of hinged bangles like the one presented here – they come in all widths, adorned with various hard-stones or gems and I consider them the epitome of Los Ballesteros creativity. The stone is light lemony in color with lots of sparkle and the substantial silverwork with its thick semi-arcs and hollow half-beads has the most wonderful patina. Impressive…


Size/Weight: 7″ inner circumference (clasped); just shy of 1″ wide; 71.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Los Ballesteros signature as shown as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO” and “STERLING 925”; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with a stunning gem, wonderful patina, hefty yet a pleasure to wear and to behold, with no damage or repairs noted
