This mid-century necklace from Los Castillo is a heavy and very substantial seldom seen design.
Thirty-eight modernist twisted panels drape perfectly upon the neck, conforming perfectly with a fluidity which compliments the wearer. The wide J-hook closure forms an almost seamless appearance.
Measures 15 3/8" end to end, with a 1" width. This will wear slightly smaller because of the width.
Weight is 130.4 grams.
Signed and hallmarked on the attached tag "Los Castillo Taxco Made in Mexico Sterling", with the design # 731. No eagle assay. Likely dates 1950's.
Collector quality, in excellent vintage condition with a warm patina.
