    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.

      Love that Mexican Taxco silver jewellery! It must weight a ton :)
    14. Zowie Zowie, 7 years ago
      I really like it & you can tell not cheap I also bet it sits well around the neck cheap ones usually don't good find
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Thank you Nadia, Newtimes, mikelv85, nldionne, MJ, toolate2, bratjdd for your love!
    16. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      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.

      Thank you Phil and Lisa for your love.
    18. Zowie Zowie, 7 years ago
      It isn't something I could wear but I do love the style
    19. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Thank you Woman34 for your love.
    20. Zowie Zowie, 7 years ago
      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, 7 years ago
      I agree definitely Aztec feel. Thanks for checking in again!
    22. Zowie Zowie, 7 years ago
      I'm always around just not always up to doing the things I want
    23. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Zowie I know the feeling.
