Sterling Silver Taxco Cuff Bracelet

 

This heavy sterling silver cuff was crafted in the studio of world renowned Taxco Artisan – Margot Van Voorhies. Her studio, “Margot de Taxco”, produced some of the most important Taxco silver jewelry of the last century. We are pleased to offer this masterpiece to our loyal customers. It hails from a collection that included pieces by Spratling, Aguilar, Pineda and other Taxco master silversmiths. In the coming weeks, we will be posting the remainder of the collection in our store. This particular bracelet features a classic Mexican swirl pattern that is interrupted by a plain flat bar of silver. The “modern meets classic” juxtaposition makes for a real show stopper.

 

Sapphire Ring

 

There is no blue like “sapphire blue” and this classicaly designed cluster ring takes full advantage of that fact. Over a dozen full cut natural blue sapphires are web-set in a solid sterling silver 14K-gold-finished ring. The use of silver as the base metal helps keep this stunning natural gemstone ring in the most affordable of price ranges. Its bold styling and size dress up the hand in a way that say’s “I’m all that”.
