Vintage Mexican Sterling Silver Bracelet Earring Set Colorful Abalone La Ranchetta
For your consideration is this pretty Mexican abalone leaf bracelet and earrings. What makes the set interesting is that the artisan incorporated sterling bars into the leaves to imitate veining. The abalone is so colorful. The bracelet has as old hook closure and the earrings are screw back , The marks are hard to make out but I see La Ranchetta on the bracelet and 925 on both. Everything tests as sterling except the actual earring hardware. which was common. I see no eagles and believe the set is pre 1945.
The bracelet measures 6 and 1/2 inch when clasped. The earrings measure a hair over 1 and 1/4 by a hair over 5/8 inches.
The set is in great functioning condition. It has an uneven patina that has picked up some color. The abalone is secure. I did not notice until I examined with a high powered loupe that one sliver of silver in one leaf is missing. This won't be noticed when worn.
