There's a new sheriff in town...or some new earrings, even better. These sterling silver Taxco earrings are shaped like sheriff's stars, five-pointed stars with beads at the points' tips. Bright and shiny, just like the stars in the sky. These are post earrings. Marked on the back "Mexico", "925", and an illegible Taxco makers mark. Circa 1970.

The city of Taxco is an important center for Mexican silver jewelry design. During the 1940s Taxco drew jewelry artists from all over the world. The main attraction for designers and studio jewelers was the abundant supply of locally mined materials, like silver and semi precious gems.

Details.....The earrings measure 1.35" by 1.27". In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should expect some wear on all vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
