SOPHISTICATED VTG TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER BALL BEADED NECKLACE


Description

This is a MAGNIFICENT vintage sterling silver necklace that was hand wrought in Taxco, Mexico, after 1978. This exceptional necklace is masterfully crafted in an elegant and timeless motif. This necklace is 21-1/2" long and consists of bench made sterling silver balls (the balls are handmade by the artist by making the two halves of the ball and then joining them at the center) that graduate in size. The smallest ball is 1/4" wide and the largest ball is 7/8" wide. The balls are strung on sturdy chain. The clasp is a tongue and box closure that works perfectly and closes with a crisp "click". The silver has acquired a beautiful soft age earned patina.This magnificent necklace is extremely well made in a classic and sophisticated design that will always be in vogue ~ would look great with that perfect little black dress, a business suit, or with your favorite jeans and camisole ~ it is sure to be noticed and admired ~ it would be a grand asset to any vintage Taxco silver jewelry collection!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 21-1/2", width of balls ranges from 1/4" to 7/8", and weight is101.8 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings or dents to the silver ~ minor surface scratches consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces) ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "TC-54, 925, MEXICO".Registration hallmark "TC-54" is shown on page 273 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2013 edition).BILLE HOUGART'S NEW 3RD EDITION OF HIS HALLMARK BOOK IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE ON FROM SELLER "CICATRIX!"

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.
