This Margot de Taxco design 5102 is magnificent and most rare. The necklace is all solid silver with a copper plate over the sterling on alternating pre-Colombian swirls giving it a rich contrast in color. It is heavy at 160 grams total and the necklace breaks down into 5 pieces. The 2 brooch medallions are each 2in. by 1.75in. All the swirls are .75in. tall. As I have shown it the necklace hangs 24in. long. It can be arranged with only the swirl links as a necklace, or shorten the look shown and as in Dr. Penny Morrill's book MEXICAN SILVER. In this way 2 swirls hang off closer to the collar bone. You can reverse the brooches to hang downward as well. This necklace shows an Art Deco flare when in full regalia. Please note that the color is truly more of a rich reddish copper than my pictures show in my monitor of the alternating links. It is dramatic and hardly ever seen. Museum and definitely collector quality with no flaws, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
