DESCRIPTION : This is a GORGEOUS silver necklace that was made in Taxco, Mexico, after 1978. It is made of 950 silver which is superior to sterling silver which is 925. This necklace is masterfully crafted in a fabulous modernist design with a great art deco look! This design was orginated by the extraordinary talented silver maestro, Sigi Pineda. Sigi is only one of two to three major designers still working in Taxco today. It is crafted of thick gauge silver and is hinged on either side (both hinges function well) and closes in the back with a tongue and box clasp that works perfectly and closes with a crisp 'click'. The front of the necklace has incised designs and is accented with a large deep blue gemstone cabochon (1-1/8" long and 5/8" wide ~ the stone may be sodalite) ~ the cabochon has magnificent light blue, white and rusty beige inclusions and highlights (the stone may appear to be cracked in the closeups but it is the inclusions/the stone is totally smooth on the surface with no cracks/chips/breaks). Please be sure to supersize the photos to fully appreciate the beauty and artistry of this unique piece. This is a classical and timelessly elegant necklace ~ it is very well made and would be an asset to any Taxco silver collection!

SIZE: Inside circumference is 15", width in front is 1-1/2", width in back is 3/8
