These beautiful earrings are hand-carved red onyx tribal masks, set in silver. They are hard to find, as Mexican mask earrings are more commonly found in green or black onyx. Each masked figure is about 1/2 of an inch (wide) by 1 inch (high) and has a silver headdress and silver dangles at each ear. They have screwbacks that were popular until the mid-1950s and were likely made circa 1940. The backs are marked "Mexico Silver". "Mexico Silver" or "Silver Made in Mexico" were marks used from the 1920's until the late 1940's. Although Mexican silver standards were varied for work done during this period, they were commonly above .925 (sterling) purity. The Mexican government instituted the “eagle form” mark for silver work, in 1948. Beginning about 1950, Mexican silver work was marked “sterling” or “925”.

These earrings are in excellent vintage condition and the onyx has no chips or cracks. The metal does not attract to a magnet. The silver needs polishing.
