The Art Deco Era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" Era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period. During the Art Deco Period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would often take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Taxco is the location of many silver mines that have been around since the time of conquistadors. During the 1920's Taxco artisans banded together to start creating silver jewelry, since then Taxco jewelry has been considered among some of the finest craftsmanship in silver jewelry in the world. Persian Turquoise is a highly coveted and rare type of turquoise.
It has been mined for thousands of years in Modern Day Iran. The most coveted type of Persian Turquoise is a solid bright blue hue that is very difficult to find. Repoussé began as an ancient metal working technique, involving malleable silver first formed with a specially created three-dimensional mold and then further refined by hammering from the reverse side and adding detail to the front.The finished work was intricate, with grooves, indentation and channeling. It was then carefully polished as an eye-catching treasure. PLEASE WAIT FOR AN UPDATED INVOICE BEFORE PAYING FOR YOUR ITEMS. Thank you for your cooperation.
