Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver & Raised Enamel Inlay Hinged Bangle Bracelet - Inlaid Panel - Mexico #d344

Regular price $59.00
This beautiful Mexican bracelet is constructed of fine sterling silver and enamel. It is oval in shape and is hinged to allow it to be easily put on and taken off the arm. The front of the bangle has a raised section that has been inlaid with alternating black and green malachite-like enamel. The inlay also has a diagonal orientation that adds visual interest to the piece when viewed from different angles. The green enamel has swirls and bands and looks so much like malachite stone that I believed that it was. The rest of the bangle is finished in a smooth silver. The bangle opens with a push button, compression style clasp. It's such a gorgeous piece!

The bangle has an inner diameter of about 2 1/2 inches and measures approximately 8 inches around. It is about 6mm wide and weighs a substantial 32.2 grams. It is signed and hallmarked "925 TN-32 Mexico" on the inside of the bangle. The inlaid areas tested in the glass (enamel) range on a Presidium gem tester.

This awesome bangle is a fabulous example of handcrafted Mexican silver and inlay work! It could be easily dressed up or down, making it a versatile addition to your silver jewelry collection. It would also make a great gift for the person who appreciates fine Mexican silver. The bangle is in very good vintage condition. One of the black enamel inlaid sections has some scratches (see photo #9). The scratched area is black like the rest of the inlay and toward the inner area near where the raised area meets the bangle, so it's really not noticeable when the bangle is worn. I've discounted it a bit for this small issue, and I wouldn't miss this beauty at this price. It's a fabulous piece!
