    I found this necklace last week and have worn it already a few times. I believe it might be from the mid to late 1980’s. It is marked “Mexico” and “925”and has some other marks as well. The other marks, however, are hard to read. I think It is marked with T for Taxco.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Wonderful mexican necklace! I love it! It´s an unusual "organic" design for being a mexican piece, according to me :)

      Agree with Elisabethan, it is unusual for Mexican design. Beautiful work! :)

      Can you use a magnifier and get a closer image of the marks? I have alot of Taxco items and am familiar with their marks. Thanks.

      Thanks a lot, katherinescollections.
      Efesgirl, I'll try my best and let you know:)

      It looks like TM 26. It also as the mark MEXICO and what looks like CAN 925. I just hope it's not plated LOL - I would still love it but maybe a little bit less.
    7. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      TM-26 means that the silversmith with the intitals TM was the 26th person to register at the Mexican Assay Office. No idea about CAN, so it's probably not CAN... :-)

      I wish I knew what the marks mean, but Bonnie has given you some good info.
