vintage Mexican silver and amethyst modernist Necklace, Taxco Ledesma style design

on Oct 10, 2018 in archived

Slick modernist design with some beautiful lapidary work make this modernist Mexican silver and amethyst necklace a must-have for your jewelry box. Undoubtedly based on an original Enrique Ledesma design which is quite difficult to find with this specific stone, the necklace achieves a seamless transition from sterling to amethyst while the foiling on the back of the stones makes their depths sparkle with a bright purple light. What a treat…


Size/Weight: 15 1/4″ long (wearable); central part with the amethysts is 4 3/8″ long with a drop of 1″; width at the chain 5/16″; 39.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: signed for maker yet illegibly as you can see but the “925” is clear in the photo; pre-1948 as I don’t see an Eagle assay mark

Condition: excellent vintage with beautiful stones, very nice lapidary work, great patina and no damage or repairs noted


SOLD – Thank you!
