Vtg 1950s 60s Margot De Taxco Mexican Sterling Silver Dangle Drop Earrings
Why You'll Love It. These earrings mark just one of the many incredible jewels designed by none other than Margot de Taxco. Classic in design their simplicity and finely crafted proportions speak to Margot's quality. Featherlight with a dimensional silhouette, their pendants dangle freely so you shine from every angle. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the silver. Throughout history, regions have developed their own distinctive styles of jewelry with techniques that are passed down through generations. Because each region shared the same techniques, materials, knowledge, and craftspeople, the style of each region becomes incredibly recognizable, almost like a designer.
However, regional jewelry is made by different artisans, so each piece feels subtly different. For example, Austro-Hungarian jewelry is a recognizable category of jewelry, known by its style, motifs, construction, and materials.
Collectors can favor regional jewelry for the clear history and distinct location that can be assigned to the piece. Antique and vintage pieces have been passed through generations, so it's not often you find a piece that has been maintained in its near-original condition. Such pieces are not only higher in value, but they are also more collectible, as they carry the history of past owners but do not show it. They reveal what the piece would have looked like when it was first created, giving us an insight into a bygone era.
