Item details

Vintage from the 1940s

Material

Silver

Dimensions

Length: 0.625 Inches; Width: 0.625 Inches

DESCRIPTION: These earrings were made in the 1940s and are a beautiful example of Mexican craftsmanship. Possibly Taxco (no marking to verify for sure), these sterling silver earrings are crafted in the modernist design. Sitting on a silver square are six silver beads upon which sits the tribal Aztec/Maya warrior mask carved from green chalcedony - a deep jade color green that almost looks bluish green in certain lighting. The stone is in a silver bezel setting. The earrings are screw back. On one earring is the faded mark "SILVER" which was used in jewelry made before 1950, confirming these are from the 1940s. The auction house's Independent Graduate Gemologist (CHACC) certified the stone as green chalcedony. The earrings will be shipped in a gift box with jeweler's cotton.

DIMENSIONS: 5/8 inch square, 5/8 inch thick

CONDITION: These earrings are in excellent condition. The stones are not loose, and the screw backs work perfectly. The silver shows just a bit of tarnish.

PROVENANCE: Obtained from a Charleston, SC estate auction

USE: These are beautiful earrings to wear for any occasion. They would complement other southwest silver jewelry, and would make a lovely gift for any occasion.

SHIPPING:
-- United States: USPS First Class mail, with appropriate insurance, or USPS Priority Mail, which includes $100 insurance (please choose shipping at checkout)

FAQs

I do my best to package all orders with appropriate foam, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc. Unfortunately, there are rare occasions when the post office delivers a damaged item.

Should your item arrive damaged, please save the item and all packaging and convo me and attach pictures of the damaged item and the packaging. This will assist me in making the insurance claim for your refund. Insurance claims are done online, but your local post office may require inspecting the damaged item and the box it came in. I will notify you once the claim is complete.
Please note that I will ship only to domestic addresses that are confirmed with the USPS via Etsy. Packages cannot be shipped to unconfirmed addresses.
