Vintage Taxco, Mexico sterling silver elaborately embellished artisan necklace set that is not very often available with both pieces available as a set. This necklace design is different from many others designs of this period because of the primitive application of the inlaid gemstones. The turquoise, coral and spiney oyster inlaid are all bezel set nuggets or chips. Similar to a rough terrazzo setting. They are not high polished and set natural. Gorgeous Niello sterling silver work. The necklace chain features a ribbed or bow motif. Artisan signed: Taxco, Mexico, .925. TC-83 / TP-86. (Often silversmiths work in collaboration with one other within the Taller).
Measurements: Necklace length: 20 inches with an additional 1 inch pendant drops. Earrings are Chandelier style measuring 3 inches.. Total 90 grams.
Weight: Necklace: 69.5 Grams; Necklace; Earrings: 19.5 Grams
Note: Condition is extremely good with only 1 small turquoise chip missing in the circle of the necklace. Hard not pickup the missing chip with all the artistry and colors or one is counting the design pattern.
