What to Look For When Shopping for Vintage Mexican Silver Jewelry

  • Make sure the clasp on the jewelry opens and closes properly.
  • Examine the back of the piece for hallmarks.
  • Familiarize yourself with hallmarks used on Mexican silver jewelry. A great book is The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks, Hecho en Mexico by Billie Hougart.
  • Many pieces made before 1948 only include stamps saying “Mexico” and “Silver.”
  • The Mexican government introduced the Eagle stamping mark after 1948 to ensure that silver content was at least 925 parts out of 1000. 
  • Signed pieces included the name or initials of the designer or crafter, and usually note the place of production: D.F., indicating Mexico City; “Hecho en Mexico” for “Made in Mexico;” or “Taxco” for the city where it was made. Such designations as “Sterling,” “Silver” or “925” usually occur in a circle. Some jewelry also carries design numbers.

Famous Designers of Mexican Silver Jewelry

 Some big names in vintage Mexican silver jewelry are: William Spratling, Hector Aguilar, Fred Davis, Matilde Poulat, and Margot de Taxco.

I really like how well organized and comfortable this post was as well. It was easy to read and entertaining. 

  2. Thank you. You see i have been looking for a good place to get the mexican jewelry you have shared here because my sister is getting married soon and she says she wants to wear a vintage Mexican jewelry. I was thinking that i would be needing to go all the way to the country. Lol. Luckily, one of your picks here is not too far from where i stay. Ill be a good stroll for me. Thanks again 

  3. Hello Andrea, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. My wife is a true lover of vintage Mexican jewelry which is why I found this article great, I will definitely order from Old Mexico silver shop as they ship to Croatia, it will take some time for a package to come but nevermind, my wife will be so surprised.

  4. My girlfriend is a big lover of jewelry and her birthday is coming up pretty soon. I think itd be very lovely to get her something real nice during this period and why not. I got the idea that vintage mexican jewelry are usually the best and im really hoping that it will really bow her mind away. Since you have shared this, ill be sure to visit one of these locations to patronize them. Thank you!

  5. There are so many great designs that can be made with silver that the imagination never ends. And Mexican designs have a lot of creativity besides that one can find everything from small jewels such as earrings or rings to real works of art such as teapots, jugs, plates, etc. It is undoubtedly a fascinating part of jewelry in general. Thank you for sharing your choices.

  6. It is comforting to know that jewelry is hallmarked since 1948 with 925 out of a 1000 guaranteed sterling silver content,and that you are getting good quality jewelry,for your money.

    My wife and I make charm earrings,and charm bracelets,for sale at markets in our area,and she also makes semi precious stone brooches.

    The bracelets,earrings and pendants, are quite ornate, some with fairly modern designs,and others with aztec and even some with what looks like ancient chinese themes.

    I particularly like the brooches, bracelets,rings, and pendants, that have semiprecious stones in their designs,especially with opals,onyx,and turquoise stones. 

  7. I am so glad I came across this article. I love the looks of vintage jewelry and have been wondering where to begin there is so much good and wrong information out there, so a person needs someone with the expertise to point in the right direction. And, you certainly have accomplished that, I appreciate the list you have provided of places to buy quality vintage Mexican jewelry. I am sure I will be able to find what I am looking for and feel confident that you have provided me with a list of reputable sellers.
