Vintage Taxco 925 Sterling Silver and Abalone Hoop Earrings

I am offering a pair of very beautiful 1980's vintage, Mexican 925 sterling silver and abalone shell inlaid hoop earrings in very good vintage condition. They measure a little more than one inch in diameter and have a combined weight of 10 grams. The back of one earring has the 925 hallmark, Mexico and TH 24.

According to the on-line Encyclopedia of Silver Marks, the “T” means it was made in Taxco, the “H” is the silversmiths initial and the 24 shows that the silversmith is the 24th person with the “H” initial to register his mark in the city’s assay office. This might be too much information, but it is interesting.

Regarding Jewelry care:

Please don't wear your jewelry while you're sleeping or bathing.

Avoid spraying perfume on your jewelry; this may react with the natural materials.

Please note that colors may vary depending on your monitor.
