Most Mexican jewelry found today was made between 1940 and the present. After 1947 Mexican sterling is marked "Made in Mexico" and "sterling" and/or the mark "925" or "940". Between 1947 and 1979, an eagle stamp was also used.
This lovely pair of screw-back earrings, circa 1950's, portray a section of a stylized floral blossom. Various length narrow petals swirl out from the center creating a great form. The earrings measure 1 1/4" in length and 3/4" in width. The longest petal on one is stamped "Sterling" and on the other "Taxco 925". Good condition with no damages and original patina.
