Sigi Pineda Mexican silver modernist Necklace ~ “ribbon” pectoral

By 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...

By in archived |

Sigi Pineda sterling silver hinged bracelet, this piece represents the epitome of minimalism and abstraction, its polished cab of golden sheen obsidian being its creator’s only concession to luxury.

A master lapidary, Enrique Ledesma has a magical way of seamlessly marrying silver and stone and the bracelet presented here is one of his signature designs. I am very partial to azur-malachite and just by looking at the richness of the blues and greens in the stones you can understand why. A real pleasure to wear and to behold…   Size/Weight: 7″ long (wearable) by 3/4″ wide; 35.5 grams Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “TAXCO HECHO EN MEXICO”, “925” alongside Eagle 3 assay mark and des. no 202; 1950s-60s Condition: excellent vintage with richly colored inlay, warmly glowing patina and no flaws noted   SOLD – Thank you!
