It's always such a pleasure to be able to offer the work of the venerable Taxco taller, Los Castillo, and I am pleased to offer this versatile sterling silver chain necklace made up of alternating beads and tubes, all closing with a hook clasp. The TC-45 mark on this necklace is registered to Antonio Castillo & Family with his daughter, Emilia, most often using the registration.
The history of the Los Castillo workshops and the famous men and women that have been associated with the name is fascinating. In the beginnings of the silver industry in Taxco, Los Castillo was very, very influential as they still are today. The workshop was started by Antonio Castillo and his brothers in 1939. As a side note, Antonio was married at one time to Margot van Voorhies Carr also known as Margot de Taxco. The work produced at Los Castillo is considered to be of the finest quality, design and craftsmanship. Los Castillo pieces will continue to be investment pieces for the discerning collector. Emilia Castillo is the daughter of Antonio Castillo and is a well known jewelry artisan with Neiman Marcus carrying her work.
