Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver and Faux Turquoise Cutout Modernist Cuff Bracelet - Mexico - Asymmetrical - Men's #d315

Regular price $81.00
This large sterling silver cuff bracelet was created by an artisan silversmith in Taxco, Mexico. The cuff features an asymmetrical design with large cutouts and jagged lines. The design of the cuff gives it a flowing appearance on the wrist that is quite striking. A faux, blue turquoise stone focal sits in the center of the cutouts adding great visual interest to the piece. The cuff is finished in a smooth, shiny silver. It's a big, bold and beautiful modernist bracelet!

The inner dimension of the cuff is approximately 3 inches and it has a 2 inch opening in the back. Measured around with a tape measure, it is about 8 inches, including the opening in the back. The widest points in the front of the cuff measure approximately 31mm in width. The cuff weighs in at a hefty 27.0 grams. The stone is about 10mm by 7mm in size. The cuff is signed and hallmarked "Taxco Mexico 925" in a circle around the letters "DC" and "TD-43" on the inside of the cuff. I was unable to identify the artist.

This expertly handcrafted silver cuff is so beautiful! It's design is modern and bold and it's perfect for a man to wear. It's a great piece to add to a vintage Mexican silver jewelry collection and would make a nice gift The cuff is in very good vintage condition. It has been worn and one side of the cuff has a more angular shape than the other (photo #9) most likely from the wearer adjusting it to their wrist. The stone has a hairline crack and a few nicks that were visible with high power magnification (photo #9). It has been discounted for these minor issues.
