Mexico Sterling Silver Wide LOS BALLESTEROS Bracelet
- Source: eBay
I am listing more neat items this week & am always happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases, so you might want to check them out. This is a stunning bracelet, but I have a scrawny wrist & it's so heavy [62 grams] that it wants to slide off. It could be adjusted a little [bigger or smaller] but not small enough for me. If you have the right size wrist, this will fit you like a glove. It domes slightly upward & so covers the wrist bone for a very comfortable fit. I have shown a picture of the hallmark, which I think is "LOS BALLESTEROS", but the stamp isn't crisp. It was probably hard to stamp it with the domed shape. The "925" [sterling silver] mark is clear. With the scalloped sides it's hard to get a measurement but the inside middle is 6 -1/4" with about a 1" gap, but as I said I squeezed a little. My wrist is about 5 -3/4", so I'd guess it would fit a 6 -1/4" to 7 -1/2" wrist best. I see no eagle mark, so I'd bet it was made in the 1980's or 90's. I have seen a variation of these 'curlicues' on an older Los B. piece. It's beautiful & it always got praise the few times I wore it. My starting price is not for the faint of heart, but this is a fine quality bracelet from one of the best Mexican silversmiths & I feel it's well worth it.
