Vintage

For any jewelry lover, it is vital to own a couple of vintage pieces – pieces that are timeless and classic, while having a one-of-a-kind creative design element to them. Most of our vintage pieces are characteristic of Mexican culture, specifically Aztec design. Handmade silver rings, brooches, cufflinks and more make up our vintage stock. Other than considering their fashion statement, these pieces are strong, dependable, and unique. These pieces of jewellery, whether it be necklaces, earrings, finger rings, bracelets, or brooches, are highly desired, wanted, and in some cases needed. The majority of vintage jewellery will not have precious stones. They will, however, have rhinestones, both large and small, as well as, many other types of non precious stones. Although, these types of stones many not be the most valuable types, they are distinct and unique. This is what makes this type of jewellery so sought after. It's the differences from the standard types of jewellery. Types of vintage jewelry include Victorian: Victorian jewellery takes inspiration from the jewellery worn by Queen Victoria herself. You can expect to find chokers and necklaces studded with stones, every piece is baroque and intricately designed. Edwardian: Edwardian jewellery tends to be less detailed when compared to Victorian pieces. These elegant pieces usually have a signature bow and swag design. Many of the designs appear contemporary because of their simplicity. Art Nouveau: These pieces are characterized by swirling designs and tendrils. Most motifs are inspired by flowers and Celtic patterns. They draw inspiration from dragons, dragonflies and peacocks. Art Deco: Art Deco consists of well defined geometric and abstract designs. The pieces used sharp lines and bold color combinations modern motifs like cars and airplanes. You will find some lovely chandelier earrings and necklaces with tassels or long pendants. Our Mexican vintage jewelry carries a couple of these features, but the most common one will be Art Deco, which was used in so many of Margot de Taxco works and some other stores and silversmiths or designers in the "Old Taxco " era.
