There is something so attractive about black onyx against silver; they
contrast and pop against each other. These beautiful earrings from the 1940s
were crafted in Taxco, Mexico, which creates some of the world's best silver
pieces. The non-pierced, screw back earrings feature two large cabochons of
onyx, bezel-set into silver and accentuated with silver ropework and bead

Taxco silver is highly coveted and collectible, with a high quality of
craftsmanship in each piece. Taxco is a tiny town between Acapulco and Mexico
City with a long mining history. In the late 1920s, a highway finally extended
to Taxco, which enabled William Spratling, a gentleman from the US, to find the
town and discover the potential in the artisan community. He invited great
metalsmiths to join him in apprenticing young artists, and the world took
notice of the divine craftsmanship in the jewelry produced. To learn more about
Taxco, read our blog here:

The earrings are in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear.
The surface of the silver has fine lines and marks but nothing distracting or
noticeable. The silver was recently polished, and you can see a dark patina in
areas where it is difficult to clean. I have not polished the earrings but
would be happy to shine them up for you. The backs are stamped AVM, MEXICO 925,
and possible DF. The screw backs are fully functional and secure the earrings
to your ear. I examined the onyx.

The earrings measure 3/4" tall and 7/8" wide.

I try to show an accurate picture of the item in my photographs and the
written description. Please note the size given in the description, as images
can often appear more substantial than the actual object.

I combine shipping on multiple orders!
