Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Faceted Black Hematite Chased Tooled Openwork Pendant Necklace #c706
I'm pleased to offer this beautiful sterling silver and hematite pendant necklace from Mexico!

This pendant necklace includes a very large sterling silver, marquise-shaped pendant that has been strung on a vintage sterling silver serpentine chain. The handmade pendant is an old Mexican piece that is flat and openwork with marvelous chased designs across its entire surface. It features a large, oval, faceted black hematite stone in the center that is so shiny and reflective. The back of the pendant is finished in a smooth shiny silver. It's an absolutely gorgeous handmade treasure!

The pendant measures about 2 1/2 inches long and 1 5/16 inches wide. It is signed and hallmarked "Mexico" and "DF" for the Federal District of the City of Mexico and hallmarked "Sterling 925" on the back of the pendant. It also has an Eagle mark on its attached bail, but I could not make out the number. The chain measures approximately 19 1/2 inches long. It is hallmarked "925" on the side of the spring ring clasp. There are also faint marks on the end caps of the chain, but I was unable to decipher them. The combined weight of the set is 11.3 grams.

This striking silver pendant is a superb example of early Mexican silver jewelry artistry! Although I was unable to identify the maker, it was definitely created by a talented silversmith. It would make an excellent addition to a vintage Mexican jewelry collection and a fantastic gift. The pendant and chain are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
