I bought this at a thrift store in San Diego about 10 yrs ago - marked Mexico silver on the back. Maybe 1960's or 70's? Would appreciate any comments or info. The links and closure are handmade and soldered. It's not a cheap piece - very well made. Length 15.5" and sits right under my collarbone. Center focal motif is 1.25" to give you an idea of scale, silver teardrops are 5/8" long and the other squares graduate smaller to .75" at back so it is a statement piece - but not gaudy.

I know it isn't old old and would appreciate any comments - I haven't seen another like this since I bought it 10 years ago.

    Thank you Nadia, Newtimes, mikelv85, nldionne, MJ, toolate2, bratjdd for your love!

    Thank you BelleEpoque and Zowie and everyone else: it is probably a 60's or 70's remake. It isn't heavy. The plaques are maybe 2mm? thick at most- so is lightweight but yes you're right Zowie - this is a very nice necklace. It isn't cheap but not as fabulous as the Nester Castillo.

    It still has a Aztec look to me but like most things I could be barking up the wrong tree nothing new just somewhere to start.
  21. valentino97 valentino97, 1 year ago
    I agree definitely Aztec feel. Thanks for checking in again!
