Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver Green Chrysoprase Lavalier Pendant Necklace - Modernist #c898 c821
This beautiful necklace is comprised of fine sterling silver. It includes a Taxco, Mexico pendant and an Italian necklace chain. The pendant is a long, two-part lavalier style with a lovely oval, green chrysoprase cabochon top that holds a long inverted teardrop-shaped solid silver dangle at the bottom. The loop that holds the dangle swirls down from the top and twists and is a decorative element in itself. I've placed the pendant on a round popcorn link chain that complements it beautifully. The chain closes with a lobster claw style clasp. The necklace has a definite Scandinavian influence and a fabulous modernist style. It is so gorgeous!

The pendant measures about 2 1/2 inches long and 5/8 inch wide. It is signed and hallmarked "TM-82 .925 Mexico" on the back. The stone tested in the chrysoprase range on a Presidium gem tester. The chain measures approximately 16 inches in length. It is signed and hallmarked "Italy 925" on one of the end caps and also "925" on the clasp. The combined weight of the pieces is 10.9 grams.

This pendant necklace is quite striking! It would make a fine addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection and an exceptional gift! Both the pendant and the necklace chain are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear or to gift out of the box!
