    One of my favorite sterling silver jewelry producers are the artisan silversmiths of Mexico. I always have a few nice pieces to admire and or wear. For me it's not about value, it's about style, craftsmanship and appeal.

      I also love mexican silver jewelry. Agree with you in that it's not about the value.

      Same here: I have a soft spot for Mexican jewelry in my heart. I love to wear the pieces, and if I see some nice ones for a reasonable price, I add them to my little collection. By the way, I have a bracelet posted that has very similar glass cabochons, but the style is rather different: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/147511-vintage-sterling-filigree-and-foil-glass?in=collection-3441

      Thank you freiheit, I looked at your bracelet, I agree they might have been made at the same time. In a different style, mine with those big panel links they used sometimes.

      My impression is that they did not use Art Glass cabochons till later, maybe 1970s-80s. My marks are also different than your's with no eagle but with initials. Eagle was used before 1979, and initials were used after 1979 for Mexican sterling silver jewelry.

      Love these too!!! My examples have stone or MOP. This is a beautiful set! Even if this is 70's-80's? It's harder to find lovely sterling Mexico items like yours...

      I am a big fan....

      WoW Mary, beautiful pieces, I especially like the abalone stone bracelet left in their natural forms, organic splendor.... Thank you for your fine comments and links. ;-)

      Elisabeth and Freiheit LOVE Mexican jewelry too. Take a look thru their posts. :-) In fact CW community has some really wonderful posts that you will enjoy. There is a lot of old Mexican silver treasures, but it's fun for us junkers to find the "bridge" items from the 50's-80's which you and I have. The workmanship is very nice and they are becoming hard to find... Happy hunting truthordare.
