These are amazing and rare earrings! The beautifully enameled snakes seem to climb up the ear lobes when worn. Made by the famous and incomparable Margot de Taxco. Hand enameled on hollow Repousse Sterling Silver, they measure about 1 3/4" long. Because they are climbers, they do not come down towards the neckline but rather point up.
The original design had screw backs. These are now clip backs which make them stay in place better. The style is not well suited for posts. Other than this change, they are all original. No chips, cracks or loss of enamel.
They are unsigned, perhaps the signature was on the screw back, perhaps it was erased when they were changed to clips. Regardless, Margot de Taxco's design and workmanship is undeniable.
These earrings are extremely rare, coming to market in very few occasions.
This information is intended to help you understand our sizing methods.
Please note many small measurements are in millimeters. It is a Jewelry Industry standard for accuracy.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
