Artemio Navarrete moved to Taxco in 1931 to help William Spratling start up his Taller de Las Delicias. He over saw many of the workers who became successful later on in their careers. Many of the designs that were produced by him are Spratling designs. The weight is 95 grams heavy and the length is a comfortable 18.5in. which wears like a 17in. necklace when accounting for it's just under an inch height of 7/8th inch. Beautiful condition, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
