Fabulous Vintage Brass Copper Silver Mixed Metal Collar: This gorgeous vintage mixed metal collar is composed of solid brass inlaid with copper and silver. Possibly Mexico in origin, as these pieces were popular in the 60's-70's and many were made there by skilled artisans. The brass has a nice heavy weight and measure approx. 12" along the inside top edge with a 2" opening and is 3/4" wide.
Mexico Sterling Ornate Half Hoop Earrings: These wonderful vintage sterling earrings are only marked 925, but construction and design elements lead me to believe these are from Mexico. They are cast from sterling silver, so are a bit weighty, so if you need lighter earrings, these are not for you. They have a granulated design on the edge and a larger "beaded" design in the center. The earrings are post with backs included. Everything about these earrings is very well done! They measure 3/8" across the top and taper to 1/4", measuring 1" from top to bottom of the hoop. Signed 925
Vintage Native American Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Coral Sterling Ring: This fabulous vintage ring is crafted in traditional Navajo style and features a lovely Sleeping Beauty turquoise and bright red coral, both bezel set. The stones are surrounded by twisted wire. The unmarked sterling ring is substantial and well made. The top measures 1 1/8 by 5/8" and the ring is a size 6.
Signed Richard Becenti Native American Wild Horse Storyteller Bracelet: This fabulous sterling silver Native American storyteller bracelet by Navajo artist Richard Becenti depicts four wild horses, trees, plants and a darling bunny. The substantial bracelet measures 2 1/4" in diameter with a 1" opening. It measures just a hair under 7/8" wide. A gorgeous addition to your Native American jewelry collection and a great bracelet to layer with all of your silver!
Mexico Sterling Pre-Eagle Green Onyx Mask Earrings: These wonderful vintage sterling earrings from Mexico feature a traditional design of an Aztec god or warrior in carved green onyx set in sterling silver. They are a very nice quality! The screw backs work perfectly. They are marked multiple times, including a makers mark, but the marks have worn and I can't make them out other than the 925 mark. The earrings measure 3/4 by 7/8". Excellent condition.
Sterling, Turquoise and Mother of Pearl Inlaid Southwestern Ring: This gorgeous sterling ring ( unmarked but tested) is crafted with inlaid mother of pearl and bright blue turquoise, each piece separated by a silver bar. It has a flattering marquise shape, with stamped designs on the edges. It is quite long, measuring 2 by 5/8" and is a size 7. Excellent condition.
Vintage Zuni Native American Sterling and Turquoise "Snake Eye" Ring: This wonderful vintage Zuni "snake eye" ring features double rows of dark blue/green turquoise securely set in individual saw tooth bezels. Accenting the stones are tiny silver "raindrops". The ring is in excellent condition. It is 5/8" wide and measures a size 5. Marked sterling.
Wide Vintage Mexico Sterling Cuff Bracelet: This elegant sterling bracelet features a high polish finish with a raised edge. It measures 1 7/8" wide at the center and tapers at the opening. It is substantial and well made. The bracelet measures 2 1/8" in diameter and has an opening of 1 1/4". It is signed Mexico, 925 with the makers initials of MWS. There is one scratch on the top that did not polish out but with the brightness of the bracelet it is hard to see. This beauty weighs 39 grams.
Vintage Mexico Sterling Glass Opal Necklace and Earring Set: This gorgeous vintage Mexico sterling set features a hand crafted pendant whose focal point is a large, colorful glass opal. The center stone measures 17 by 13mm and is surrounded by curling, ornate silverwork. The bale is large enough to accomodate most chains and cords. The pendant measures 1 3/4 ( including bale) by 1 3/8". The screwback earrings have a different design, which leads me to believe this set is a marriage. I have left them as a set because they came together, and look fabulous! The earrings have a delicate, openwork design and are centered with a securely bezel set 10x12 glass opal. The earrings measure 1 by 3/4". Both pieces are in excellent condition. These earrings could easily be converted to pierced by a jeweler if you choose. The earrings are marked "Mexico, sterling" and the pendant is marked " Hecho en Mexico, sterling Mexico and the initials A AM". They are in excellent condition.
Vintage Sterling and Turquoise Zuni Needlepoint Ring: This lovely vintage Zuni ring is crafted from unmarked (tested) sterling silver. The bright robin's egg blue turquoise stones are individually set in sawtooth bezels in a needlepoint pattern. The ring is in excellent condition and measures a size 4 1/2 on my mandrel. The top of the ring measures 3/4" across.
