Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Aztec Tribal Symbols Circle Ruby Pendant Necklace - Signed MR - Eagle 1 - Huge! #d321/a893

Regular price $249.00
This beautiful handcrafted Mexican necklace is comprised of fine sterling silver and ruby stone and includes a pendant and a silver box chain. The pendant is large and round in shape with three circular rings of designs that are reminiscent of an Aztec calendar. The center portion of the pendant holds a gloriously large, faceted, prong-set pink ruby stone. The pink color of the stone is a rich fuchsia color that is quite striking. A ring of silver beads surrounds the raised setting of the stone adding to its prominence. The next ring features a series of silver geometric designs and the last outer ring is comprised of symbols that have been applied to the edge of the pendant, giving it a sunburst appearance. The areas between the raised silver designs of the pendant have been oxidized black, which highlights them beautifully. The back of the pendant is finished in a smooth silver and it has an opening behind the setting of the ruby stone to allow light to reach and enhance the lovely stone. The pendant has an attached bail and it came to me without a chain, so I have added it to a vintage silver box chain that closes with a spring ring clasp. It is an amazingly beautiful work of art!

The pendant measures about 2 5/8 inches long (including the bail) and 2 inches wide. It is signed and hallmarked on the bail with the artist's initials "MR" in script, with 925, and with an Eagle number 1 mark. I was unable to definitively identify the artist. The ruby stone is about 10mm/3.87 carat weight in size. It tested in the ruby/sapphire range on a Presidium gem tester. The test does not differentiate between natural and synthetic stones. The chain is approximately 18 inches in length. It is signed and hallmarked "Italy 925" on its attached ring and "925" on the clasp. The combined weight of the pendant and chain is 23.7 grams.

This striking silver and ruby pendant is a superb example of Mexican silver jewelry artistry! Although I was unable to identify the maker, it was definitely created by a talented silversmith. Making it even more special is the gorgeous ruby stone. Both the pendant and the chain are in excellent vintage condition and ready to be worn and admired!
