Paula says - "This small bracelet has only a 4 3/4" inside circumference so is would be suitable for a child or small teen.

"The dyed green onyx in this bracelet is a beautiful and very, very hard stone that is popular in Mexican jewelry.

"The mask or face panels on this type of bracelet typically have earrings and they often get lost. There are no earrings present on this bracelet."

About Mexican Silverwork

Although Mexican silversmiths (plateros) have been making items, including jewelry, out of silver for centuries, it was only after the Mexican Revolution in 1910-1920, that Mexican silverwork began to flourish. Because of government mandated hallmarks on silver pieces, most jewelry pieces that we see today can be dated to one of 3 periods:

        • 1900-1948
        • 1948-1980
        • 1980 and later.

Read about hallmarks on Mexican Silver Jewelry.

    Southwest Native American Indians learned their craft from Mexican plateros. You can read more about that here: Where did Navajo silversmiths learn their craft?

     

    Our Mexican Shop contains contemporary and vintage items, sometimes with materials, date and origin unknown. Most of the pieces have been previously owned but some are New Old Stock (NOS) that were never used. Many pieces have signs of wear and use such as darkened patina on silver and gold. Some may have damage. We will describe the condition of each item on its individual page.
