This vintage Taxco Mexican necklace and bracelet set is made of solid sterling silver that's accented with gold-tone screws.
This iconic design was first created in 1969 in New York City by Italian jewelry designer Aldo Cipullo and it became a best-selling line for Cartier. The LOVE bracelet with its screws was inspired by the chastity belt and the idea that symbols of love should be everlasting. So the Cartier bracelet came with its own symbolic locking mechanism.
This 1970s Mexican set is an homage to the original design. This set requires no gadget to open or close.
The 27-link necklace measures 15.5 inches around, constructed to lay around the neck in a perfect circle. It's 1/4 inch wide. It has a secure slide-in box clasp with a side guard.
The matching 12-link bracelet measures 7 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. Also has a secure slide-in box clasp with side guard.
Together, the set weighs 115 grams...substantial in weight and great look.
Each piece is marked with a Taxco stamp (not fully legible), MEXICO 925. The set has also been acid-tested for sterling. It's in excellent vintage condition. This is a set to 'love'...no screwdriver required.
