Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver Black Leather Modernist Jewelry Set, Necklace and Bracelet Set #d137
This fabulous Taxco, Mexico modernist jewelry set includes a beautiful collar necklace and coordinating bracelet. Both pieces in the set are constructed of fine sterling silver and black leather. Both the necklace and the bracelet feature thick, curved, tubular silver fronts with silver beads on each end that attach to thick, black leather cords. The leather cords terminate at thick silver end caps and are then attached to large silver box clasps. With the wonderful curved construction, the necklace wears similarly to a torc and the bracelet like a bangle. The silver has been cleaned and shined and the leather has been cleaned with leather cleaner and leather conditioner has been applied for additional protection. It's a beautifully sleek and modern set!

The necklace measures about 18 1/4 inches in length. It is signed and hallmarked "TM-41 Mexico 925 " on the back of the clasp. The bracelet measures approximately 8 3/4 inches around. It is signed and hallmarked "TM-40 Mexico 925" on the back of the clasp. The combined weight of the set is 45.1 grams.

This wonderful jewelry set is so unique and distinctive. It is chic and modern and would make a wonderful addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection. Both the necklace and the bracelet are in very good, pre-worn condition. The bracelet has some wear to the inner surface of the leather (photo #10), but it is minor and does not show when worn. The link near the clasp of the necklace has what looks like some additional silver solder, which may have been a repair (photo #10), but it is secure and doesn't detract in any way from this fine set. It's an exceptional find!
