Fiesta Mexicana!

Heavy silver necklace with bracelet from Mexico, dated 1979

The mountains of Mexico have always been famous for their rich silver deposits. Silver jewelry therefore plays a major role in the arts and crafts of this region. This vintage set, which found its way to us here in Berlin, is a fine example of the goldsmith's craft of Central America. The set consists of a necklace and a matching bracelet. Both pieces of jewelry are crafted from heavy sterling silver. They feature a classic, bold cord pattern, also called a "Wallis pattern" or "Welsh chain". In fact, several necklaces of this design have been found during excavations in Wales, Britain, dating back to the 7th century. According to the stamping, the immensely decorative jewelry set was made in 1979 and has been beautifully preserved to this day. The necklace and bracelet are typical representatives of Mexican jewelry making and an unusual eye-catcher for the wrist and neck!
