This Mexican bracelet is heavy: 2.92 ounces of 980 silver! The heavy silver is beautifully modeled and has alternating large and small links. The large links have a traditional pattern of abstracted twisted ribbons. Between each large link is a smaller scalloped link with a raised solid dome in the center. Each large link is gently curved so that the bracelet forms a comfortable circle on the wrist.
Size: 7-1/2" long x 15/16" wide
Age: Pre-1979 when the modern system of Mexican hallmarks was introduced, but probably earlier than that.
Marks: "Sterling" "Taxco" "980"
