Vintage Maricela Sterling Silver Tiger Eye Bangle Bracelet, Ysidro Garcia Pina, Taxco, Tasco, Childs, Small Woman, Very Nice! #b971
I present today this wonderful vintage sterling silver and tiger eye bangle bracelet from Maricela, Taxco, Mexico!

Maricela was the shop name of Mexican silversmith Ysidro Garcia Pina. Pina named his shop for his daughter and signed all of his pieces with the Maricela mark. Pina learned the trade from his brother-in-law, silversmith Damaso Gallegos, who worked for the renowned master silversmith, Hector Aguilar.

This beautiful Maricela bangle features a rigid sterling silver construction with a gorgeous tiger eye cabochon adorned, hook and eye closure in the front. The tiger eye stone is oval in shape and has colors of caramel and brown running through and a wonderful chatoyancy (light reflection in the stone). The bangle is small and is perfect for a young girl or for a woman with a smaller wrist size. It's a gorgeous and very collectible piece!

The inner diameter of the bangle is about 2 3/16 inches and it has a bandwidth of approximately 1/8 inch wide in the front with a slightly larger bandwidth of 3/16 inch at the back of the bangle. The tiger eye cabochon measures about 7mm by 10mm in size. As mentioned above, the bangle is small in size. I have a 6 1/2 inch wrist and I could just tightly close the bangle around my wrist. I recommend it for a young girl or for a woman with wrist size of 5 1/2 or smaller. The bangle is signed "Maricela, Tasco, Hecho en Mexico, Sterling" and with an Eagle #2 mark on the inside back of the piece. The weight of the bangle is 10.2 grams.

This bracelet is gorgeous and extremely well made! It's a wonderful piece for a young girl or the woman with a smaller wrist size. While it is smaller in size it is big on design, having a wonderful modernist, yet decidedly feminine style. It's a fabulous signed piece from a highly desirable silversmith, making it quite collectible. The bangle is in excellent condition and ready to wear or to be gifted.
