This is an amazing vintage Mexican sterling hinged choker necklace with tapered front details that resemble a snake head design, with oval tiger's eye cabochons as the focal point at the "snake head." The piece rests against the collar bone and hinges at the back, and is meant to incorporate negative space and a modernist use of movement and the organic interplay with the body of the wearer, meaning it can fit a variety of neck sizes due to its design.
The necklace is marked Mexico 920, and has an eagle two mark meaning it was made after 1946, and likely from the midcentury era of the 50s-70s due to its flattering modernist design.
This piece is in excellent vintage condition with age-appropriate wear.
