Vintage Taxco Brooch & Pendant Combination, Sterling Silver, 10kt Gold Plated Paisley Shaped, Turquoise Composite

$ 32.00

Vintage Turquoise composite inlaid paisley brooch and pendant combination - outer border tests 10kt gold - it appears to be a plating over the sterling - the acid test did not react but  under magnification it does appear that on the edges you see the silver in some places.  It is about 2.5" long and 1.25" wide at the widest point and down to 1/2" at the bottom, slightly narrower at the very bottom.  The turquoise is a rough inlay which I believe is made from turquoise dust and epoxy or some form of resign typical of similar pieces like this.  It is signed TAXCO.  (Mexico) - Weight is 10.55 grams. Good condition - buff marks on the metal - a little rustic on the inlay but still a nice authentic piece.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.

Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
