SOLD Old Mexican Repousse Earrings

Mexican Vintage Jewellery

in stock


Wonderful old Mexican repoussé ball earrings. Hand crafted circa late 1940's these are a lovely double repose ball with ornate side details. The hook would be unusual for the 40's so I'm assuming at some stage they have been converted (the sterling hook looks 70's). They are lovely hollowware and easy to wear.

Condition Report

Spectacular vintage condition. Shows mild wear commensurate with age, will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste. Has a handcrafted look to it - incredible vintage piece.

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.


Repoussé is a metalworking is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a raised design - the back usually flat finished.
