Exceptional Rivera Mexican Silver
Matl-esque Jeweled
Necklace and Earrings Set

 

Contact us about this piece.

Stupendous Rivera sterling silver necklace and earrings set in emulation of Matilde Poulat's bejeweled jewelry, this is an early demi, very well made and an excellent alternative for all of us who either can't find a Matl set or shy away from the prices her creations command.

Constructed of two-part, articulated links the necklace sits like a dream around the neck and feels royal. The earrings are similarly articulated and spectacular.


Measuring a wearable 14 7/8" long (measuring the inner circumference) the necklace is just shy of 1 5/8" wide and weighs 94.3 grams. The earrings are 1 5/8" long by 1" wide (at their widest) and weigh 12.8 grams (for the set). The demi's combined weight is 107.1 grams. Signed with Rivera's name as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO 925", this is a pre-1948, early Matl-esque set exhibiting very good craftsmanship and attention to detail. In excellent vintage condition and a true heirloom.

 

Offered at $1850
