This gorgeous pendant necklace is marked Rancho Alegre. In researching it I found that it was the largest silver shop in Taxco in the 1960's and'70's and many famous silversmiths sold their wares there. The pendant does not have an individual maker's mark, just the one for the shop. It is a well made piece of jewelry with a lovely traditional design along the outside of the pendant. The center is set with a purple rhinestone which is the perfect color for this silver piece. There is an open work design in the bale also. Chain was made in Italy and is 20 1/8" long. The pendant including the bale is 1 7/8" long. Measuring across the pendant it is 1 1/4". Necklace is in excellent condition with some old patina. It weighs about 25 grams.
