Synonymous with silver, Mexican jewelry is renowned for its hand-crafted beauty. The town of Taxco has been a source of the precious metal since ancient times. In 1929, U.S. born architect William Spratling settled in Taxco and began to design jewelry based on pre-Hispanic art. He has been called the "father of Mexican silver."
Novica's Mexican necklace collection reveals Spratling's legacy in sterling silver necklaces by Alicia de la Paz. For Albert Ickenroth, the sun, moon and stars are a constant source of inspiration, while animal themes reflect his love for sculpture. Maria Belen Nilson and Cesar Godoy adapt Maya and Aztec art for their designs. Oscar Figueroa Escorcia's work is contemporary.
Dichroic art glass, hand-painted medallions and colorful gemstones all find a place in our Mexican necklaces. But not all is silver. You'll find the men's leather bracelet, a copper jewelry set and Huichol beadwork in our Mexican Necklace collection. Enjoy!
