Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Aztec Mayan Calendar Cufflinks - Eagle Mark - Unisex #c875
These wonderful Mexican cufflinks are early Eagle marked pieces and date to circa 1950. They are round in shape and slightly domed, and feature chased circular designs of Aztec or Mayan calendars on the fronts. The calendar symbols are raised and shiny silver and stand out against the recessed areas that are oxidized black. A fabulous Greek key or meander design decorates the outer edge of each of the cufflinks. The cufflinks are toggle style with handmade mechanisms. They are beautiful and full of texture and visual interest!

The fronts of the cufflinks measure about 13/16 inch in diameter and they have a depth of approximately 3/4 inch. The cufflinks have a combined weight of 7.7 grams. They are signed and hallmarked "Sterling 925 Mexico" and also have an Eagle 83 Mark on the backs of both cufflink fronts. They are also marked "Alpaca" on the toggle portion of each cufflink. Alpaca silver (a metal alloy) is often used for the functional portions of Mexican jewelry for added durability and affordability.

These gorgeous cufflinks would make a great gift for anyone who appreciates fine Mexican silver jewelry. They are unisex in style and could be worn by either a man or a woman. The cufflinks are in excellent vintage condition. Being handmade, they may exhibit slight variations that would not be present in machine-made pieces. They are a marvelous find!
