SOLD Art Deco Mexican Choker

Mexican Vintage Jewellery
1930's

Totally stunning sterling vintage Mexican choker necklace. This art deco piece is handcrafted in the 1930's-40's repoussé silver flowers with six bezel set pieces of green turquoise.

The repoussé flowers are hollow so it's not too weighty - signed "Silver Mexico" 'Mexico Silver'. This is a pre 1948 hallmark - as far back as 1930 - and it does test to be silver.
Stunning piece of deco Mexican jewellery.

Condition Report

Spectacular vintage condition. Shows mild wear commensurate with age, no dings or chips, will come with some patina as level of polish is a matter of taste. !'m not completely sure the clasp is original but very old as well. There are two solder marks on back of last link, unsure if this is a repair or original. Has a handcrafted look to it - amazing vintage necklace.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.
