This is a very classic and effective brooch and earrings by the maker Matl Salas who took over from his aunt in making the same style of jewelry as hers from the 1960's onward.
I would date these pieces to the 1960's- 70's era. Brooch and earrings have cut amethysts, and other stones typical of his work.
The silver is elaborately worked, and the pieces are highly stylized. The brooch has a safety catch and the earrings have screw back fittings.
The brooch has the full Matl Salas mark and the earrings have faint marks behind the screw back.
Very fashionable set.
Condition: One of the turquoise stones replaced. Stones are primitive, but that is the style of the work.
Size: Brooch is 3 1/4 by 1 3/4 inches. Earrings are 2 inches long by 1 inch wide at widest part.
