Vintage Mexican Sterling & Turquoise Link Bracelet
A fabulous Vintage Mexican sterling bracelet from the 1960's! This wide, hinged bracelet is comprised of 6 large panel links that are rectangular in shape. Each link features a single turquoise cabochon in the center, surrounded by an ornate sterling bezel detailed with a twisted silver rope border and textured frame. The largest center panel displays an ellipse-shaped turquoise cabochon resting vertically in the center of the link. The other 4 turquoise stones include 2 teardrop shaped cabochons and 2 round cabochons, giving the piece an interesting visual array of shapes. All of the turquoise stones have beautiful colors in green and blue hues with marbled white and black flecks. Each panel link is accented by 4 sterling balls at each of its four corners and the bracelet connects together at a push clasp, which is hidden within one of the links. The tongue of the clasp and the underside of the bracelet are both stamped "EL TESORO". This bracelet is an incredible example of Mexican silver jewelry and would make a gorgeous addition to any collection!

Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to sterling setting or any of the turquoise stones, all of which are intact. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
