This wonderful sterling silver pendant, or rather large charm for a bracelet, was designed by the Margot van Voorhies Carr, otherwise known as "Margot de Taxco". This pendant depicts the Zodiac sign Virgo, the virgin, and measures approximately one and five eighths inches across. Virgo, the virgin, represents those born from August 23 to September 22. Margot did make and sell a charm bracelet to accompany these medallions, so Margot may have intended these to be charms. We have had a charm bracelet in the past with five of these Margot medallions on one bracelet. However most today are worn as pendants.
Margot designed the Zodiac signs in several different series' including this round solid sterling silver set, there was also one done that was highlighted with enamel, and a set that was square. All series were approximately the same size. The round solid sterling series does appear to be the more available of the series' although, not common. Margot had also taken elements from this round series and made pins from them as well.
