This is a classic necklace from Taxco, Mexico, featuring a "ram's horn" design with each link set with a natural turquoise cab. An early piece, circa 1930s, the necklace has a beautiful patina which glows softly in the light. Hand twisted sterling wire forms the join between each link and the necklace closes with a well working hook clasp. A beauty!
