About the Jaguar

The jaguar is the largest of South America’s big cats. Most jaguars are orange with distinctive black spots although some are so dark they can appear to be spotless. Unlike many large cats, Jaguars are good tree climbers and good swimmers. They hunt fish, caimans, and turtles as well as land animals like capybaras, deer and tapirs. .Today, jaguars are found only in South and Central America.

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 vintage and new 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.
