Huge Mexican Bow Brooch

Mexican Vintage Jewellery

in stock


This is a very large statement brooch, midcentury, hand made in Mexico, it is an oversized bow in sterling silver and a an unpolished green stone centre. I suspect the stone is calcite but it is matt and opaque (I am unsure if it's natural and unpolished or this has happened dover time), either way it's a lovely colour and a gorgeous large brooch.

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. Please see above notes about the colour of the stone. 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.
