Vintage Mexican Sterling Silver Abalone Inlay Modernist Bracelet
This vintage Mexican sterling abalone Modernist bracelet is gorgeous! The colors are amazing, the abalone shell changes from green to blue to purple to pink with a little green for good measure. The geometric design lends it a timeless charm. It is entirely made by hand, including the shell inlay. It is a very labor-intensive endeavor that requires great skill.
The bracelet is composed of 9 panels linked together, two make up the hidden box clasp. The Mexican Eagle mark includes the number 3 and is hand stamped on the center link. The other mark reads “Mexico, Taxco, EAB”.
The bracelet is in excellent vintage condition. It weighs approximately 20.6 grams. It fits wrists up to 7 1/2″ and is 7/16″ wide.
