Vintage Mexican 10k gold earrings filigree natural pearls, Oaxaca earrings, Spanish jewelry, filigree earrings, gold and pearl earrings

Sorry, this item has sold.

Here we have a pair of early 20th Century 10 kt gold filigree earrings with natural pearls from Old Mexico, with back-to-front clasp. Early 20th Century Mexico was a time of upheavel, with Mexico having been deeply steeped in Spanish Colonial ways. The Mexican Revolution, which took place from 1910 to 1920 was largely about the indigenous side of Mexico--remember, Mexico is a mezcla, a mix, that's even where the name comes from, of indigenous and Spanish. These earrings are squarely Spanish Colonial in style, and may have made after the revolution, homage to that part of the culture. They are exquisite, and would be perfect for the vintage wedding, a holiday ball, or as an heirloom for generations to come. An ethnographic shop in Santa Fe recently announced its closure, and the first items to be bought out were the old gold filigree earrings from Mexico.

Each measures about 1" across at the widest point, and 1-1/2" long not including hook nor dangle pearls. Closer to 2" total length all inclusive. In excellent vintage condition. Be aware of two things: first, the back-to-front closure, which is very typical of older earrings yet may take time to master. The second is that these are 10kt and as such have some other alloys.

A beautiful and vanishing part of Mexican history.
