Gorgeous 970 silver necklace, curved design and 10 cabochon set amethyst stones.
Handcrafted, hinged, with a box closure on the back accented with an amethyst stone.
The drops move very gently with the curved frame of the necklace.
970 is a higher content of silver than 925/sterling.
It is a beautiful high-quality piece.
I have seen this piece with moonstones the amethyst version is very rare.
dated 1953-1979; Taxco, Mexico
Antonio Pineda was a master silversmith who apprenticed with William Spratling. The maestro’s work evolved from an early post-Mexican Revolutionary style influenced by a variety of themes that surrounded him, including everything from pre-Colombian art to Art Deco to the sleek lines of abstraction. Works that were in demand at mid-century are today highly collectible were the subject of an exhibition titled “Silver Seduction: The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda” on view at the University of California, Los Angeles’ (UCLA) Fowler Museum.
