This lovely, large traditional Mexican brooch is 2 and 1/2 inches long and 1 and 3/4 inches tall. It is an older piece that stands out due to its size, and has domed spheres and rope edging, wonderfully detailed. Your garment will show through and be complemented by the very dimensional shiny polished green onyx. It is 1 inch long and 3/4 of an inch wide. It is bezel set and has great depth. It is thick and sturdy at .8 ounces or 25 grams. It has the older style c clasp and is simply marked Silver Mexico. There is a slight a bend in the thin silver arch, but this can be fixed easily by your jeweler, or left as is, as it adds character and proof of the old handcrafted style. From the earlier days, no stamping out a design, but rather coaxing a vision out of the silver. The absence of an eagle assay dates this classic marvel to before 1948, and with the style and clasp, I estimate it to be from the 1930's. It has considerable patina and is in fabulous condition considering its age. Whatever you are wearing will show through the pretty open work. A very classy look in vintage Mexican silver!
Please note that I do not polish vintage silver unless you request that I do so--I will gladly shine it up with a polishing cloth if you wish ~ just let me know!
