This necklace was originally produced by Hector Aguilar for the Taller Borda in Taxco, Mexico. This necklace is featured in the book Mexican Silver by Penny Morrill & Carole Berk on page 104. The length of the necklace is of a longer length than typically seen. This necklace will age wonderfully with patina over time. Please see “Related Items” below for the matching bracelet (RB0018) & earrings (RE0018).
These earrings are a recreation of a Hector Aguilar design from the golden period of Taxco jewelry production. Hector Aguilar was an early apprentice of Willliam Spratling and left to establish the Taller Borda in 1939. Sr. Aguilar utilized pre-Columbian motifs extensively in his designs and these earrings are a fabulous example. The earrings have been flawlessly recreated by Maestro Jose Luis Flores who worked with Hector Aguilar for many years. Quality and attention to detail are very evident in the earrings.
