These sterling silver earrings are beautifully made by one of the well known Mexican artists. Horacio de la Parra managed the largest silver factory in Mexico, Conquistador - ca. mid 20th century. He was friendly with Hector Aguilar and William Spratling. His designs are classic as well as whimsical and always wonderful.
These flower earrings are almost 1" in diameter with screw backs. They are made of what looks like dark green stones filled in on the sides with ground stone. I'm not sure exactly. There are tiny areas where the ground stone has come out. Please see photos. They are clearly signed MEXICO STERLING in a circle and PARRA in the center. They are in very good condition. They were made prior to 1949 when the eagle mark was first used. Pre-eagle pieces are great collector items for the Mexican silver enthusiasts.
