Jewel of the day: Mexican Modernist Sterling Silver Collar
I posted this before (years ago) but I wore it the other day and it received such a strong reaction, I thought I’d feature it again. It is a Mexican piece marked Pineda, with a some uncommon marks (nothing that corresponds to known Antonio or Sigi Pineda marks or indeed to typical/known Mexican silver hallmarking). Pineda has an odd design, in that it is a large capital P, small upper case ineda and a large A at the end. It’s light and easy to wear and certainly becomes a focal point for conversation. The pieces are hollow, which makes it light weight, but also a bit of care needs to be taken not to dent it when storing or putting on/taking off.
Still uncertain if it really is a Pineda piece, or at least a Pineda of note! If anyone cares to weigh in, I’d be very interested to hear more!
