MAGNIFICENT BETO VTG TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER GEMSTONE BRACELET


Description

This is a RARE and EXTRAORDINARY vintage sterling silver bracelet that was hand wrought in Taxco, Mexico, before 1948, by the well documented master silver artist, BETO.Not much is known about BETO other than he was prolific and produced elegant artistic jewelry that was exceptional crafted! This exceptional bracelet is masterfully crafted in atimeless motif that has a wonderful art deco look. The bracelet consists of oval sterlinglinksthat have GORGEOUS gemstone cabochons (1" long and 5/8" wide)with four silver bead accents. Each link has a different stone: dark purple amethyst,rich sheen obsidian,amber colored jasper with natural white inclusions,gorgeous green agate with natural matrix,lavender agate with gray and russet, "crazy lace" agate in gold, tan and lavender hued white, jet black jasper with brown, anddark forest green jasper~ the stones are simply breathtaking!What makes this bracelet even MORE unique and unusual is that the stones are set in silver bezels with open backs ~ the back of the bracelet is a lovely as the front! The links are pin hinged together which gives the bracelet beautiful, uninterrupted design flow. The clasp is a tongue and box closure that works perfectly and closes with a crisp "click". The silver has acquired a rich patina that reflects the shadows created by the designs. This magnificent bracelet by BETO is extremely well made in an very unique and feminine design ~ it is bold and absolutely beautiful, sure to be NOTICED and ADMIRED! It is collector and heirloom quality, quite simply, THE BEST!!!

SIZE: Inside circumference is 7-1/4", width is 1", and weight is67.7 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings or dents to the silver ~ no chips, cracks, or damage to gemstone cabochons only naturally occuring inclusions, matrix, andcolor variances~ minor surface scratches consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces) ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "BETO, 925, TAXCO, GRO, STERLING, HECHO EN MEXICO". BETO and this hallmark (photo B-15) are shown on page 27 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2006 edition).

PLEASE NOTE: For Mexican jewelry artists and designers, silver is their canvas. In their hands, craft meets creativity and silver becomes wearable art. The various techniques are like a painter’s brushstrokes ~ they make each piece unique and a timeless object of beauty. Mexican vintage silver jewelry is handwrought, and therefore, not perfect ~ each piece will have variances that indicate that the piece is hand made. Vintage pieces will show various signs of wear since they have been pre-loved ~ items are described to the best of my ability and any damage will be noted.
